  1. To the Kellogg family and all that knew Louise. I’m so sorry for your loss. This is also a huge loss for our community. Louise had such a big heart and seemed to always remember everyone. I loved her smile. She certainly made an entrance when she enterd a room and earned much love and respect from all that knew her. She will be so sadly missed.

  2. Louise was quite a lady. Many memories. We are sorry for her passing. Her love for the Lord was seen by anyone that knew her.

  3. She was one of a kind!! I know my family will miss her very much. She always paid special attention to my daughter and kept tabs on her through out her schooling at Hannibal. She was a great neighbor and someone you could talk with and get a straight answer. The stories she could tell… Just a really special women.. Rest in peace now Louise. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers as well as your family.

  4. Nancy and I wish to send our sincere condolences to the Kellogg family. Louise was a great neighbor for over 40 years. She was also one of a kind. There was never a dull moment ( or conversation ) when Louise was around. It seemed she was involved in everything. Now, after reading her Obit, I found out she was. She was a pillar of her church and the entire Hannibal community and will surely be missed.
