Louise Driedger, age 63, of Stratford passed away peacefully at Sakura House on Saturday, October 28, 2017. Born in London, she was the daughter of Isla Mae McLeod and the late Samuel McLeod and the sister of Lynne Ternosky. Louise was loved deeply by her husband Bill, daughters Katie and son-in-law Matt, Jenny and son-in-law Andrew. She poured herself into her role as a Nana and she deeply cherished her grandchildren, Elle, Evan (Katie and Matt), Will and Quinn (Jenny and Andrew). Louise was fun-loving. She was quick to make a joke and playful at heart. Her smile was radiant and her laughter was contagious. She always looked forward to family hang-outs and fully immersed herself in engaging with each member of the family. She took great joy in spending time with her husband Bill, on their many trips, walks by the river, and sunsets at the beach. Family was her everything. Louise is remembered as a woman of incredible faith. She was a prayer warrior and relied on Gods promises to carry her through even her hardest moments. Louise lived her life with a positive, joyful, hope-filled spirit. Many have received encouragement from Louise, strength from scriptures she shared and support from prayers she prayed. Louise had a deep, genuine interest in people who were placed into her life. She found great strength and joy in the friendships she developed and many received the care and love she so naturally offered. She was deeply invested in the relationships she formed. She will be profoundly missed by so many. Friends and family will be received at Avon Mennonite Church, 90 Greenwood Drive, Stratford on Friday, November 3 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. The memorial service will be held at the church on Saturday, November 4 at 11 a.m. followed by a reception. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Stratford and District Christian School through the W.G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron St., Stratford. 519.271.7411. www.wgyoungfuneralhome.com
