Louise Wishlow

With extremely sad and heavy hearts the family of Louise Wishlow wishes to announce her sudden and unexpected passing at Vancouver General Hospital on Saturday,

July 30, 2011, blessed with 67 years of life.

Louise was born in Trail, on September 15, 1943, to parents Pearl and John Androsoff. She got her education in Castlegar and has lived here her entire life. She met and married the love of her life, George Wishlow on December 8, 1962 and together they raised two daughters. Louise is best known for her many years of working at Anderson Insurance, but she also spent many years volunteering for the Hospital Auxiliary. She was a very friendly and giving person who enjoyed sewing, painting, woodwork crafts, playing cards with friends and going to Chewelah to play the slots. Louise’s great enjoyment was her cats, whom she loved dearly.

She was predeceased by her parents, sister Pearl Fillipoff

and brother Bill Androsoff.

Left to mourn her loss is her loving husband of 48 years, George; daughters Angie (Daryl) Zibin and Jordi Wishlow with partner Eric Gunderson and many other relatives and friends.
