BROWN, Louise Watts

Cherished mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, Louise Watts Brown, 95, of Canton passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 25, 2013. She was born on Christmas day, 1917 to Walter and Trudy Watts in Kenova, WV. Together, with her husband, Claude, Louise raised their two sons and cared for her mother and grandmother. Throughout her life, Louise worked actively in her community; teaching high school for 40 years, and serving as pianist for over 20 years at the Warren Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia. She is a 1938 graduate of Marshall University, and started her teaching career at Buffalo High School in West Virginia where she taught math and also lead the band program for many years, even participating with the band in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade one year, in the early days of the parade’s history. Her marriage to Claude in 1952 took her away from WV with his career in the Army.
