Born in Hal­i­fax, she was a daugh­ter of the late John and Blanche (Pike) Moul­ton.

Louise was an in­cred­i­ble and in­spi­ra­tional mother. Her life re­volved around her whole fam­ily; fam­ily was ev­ery­thing to her. She was an ab­so­lute won­der­ful grand­mother. She will be re­mem­bered for the great love she gave and was given in re­turn from her grand­chil­dren. Louise's beau­ti­ful smile brought many smiles to oth­ers. She en­joyed bingo, darts and read­ing, and be­ing with her fam­ily and friends.

She is sur­vived by her chil­dren, Mary Lou (Wayne), John (Lil­lian), Char­maine ( John), Rose­marie, all of On­tario, Mary (Mark), Hal­i­fax, Lisa (Billy), Kathy, Shirley (Billy), all of New Water­ford; sis­ters, Alv­ina, Michigan, Vir­gina, Lil­lian (Ron), all of Hal­i­fax; brother Lloyd, On­tario; 18 grand­chil­dren and 15 great-grand­chil­dren.

Be­sides her par­ents, Louise was pre­de­ceased by her son, Paul Poisson, broth­ers, Ralph and Gor­don, sis­ter Grace Hayter.

There will be a pri­vate vis­i­ta­tion at At­lantic Fu­neral Home, 6552 Bay­ers Rd., Hal­i­fax from 12-1 p.m. on Thurs­day, July 16, with a fu­neral mass to fol­low at 2 p.m. in St. Agnes Church, Mum­ford Road, Hal­i­fax.
