Online Condolences for Lou Ann Westlake ( September 26, 1927 ~ November 04, 2017)

November 16, 2017
Stuart, Renee and family...So sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a sweet classy lady who loved her family very much! May you find comfort in your wonderful memories! — Cyndi Alverson (Livingston, MT)

November 13, 2017
Dear Stuart, Renee, Tobi, Kaci and Westlake family, I am so sorry for your loss. Lou Ann was instrumental in helping my family out at Christmas a long time ago, when things were bad. She had mentioned us to one of her groups and in no time she was at my door with Renee, with boxes of food, gifts for my children and myself and even a little money for gas. I have never forgot the kindness or the feeling it gave me. I leave you with a prayer; Dear Lord, look after our dearest Lou Ann, she is a fantastic angel looking down and guarding us all. Always close in our memories. Never to be forgotten. Let her feel comfort, and let her family feel comfort that she is in your hands. Amen. Love always, Barb (Martin) Sproles Barb (Martin) Sproles (Bozeman, MT)

Stu,Renee and family, We were very sorry to read about your Mom's passing. I realized that I've known her since 1961 when we were neighbors on South 8th in Bozeman. She was always smiling and outgoing. I hope all the good memories outweigh these days of grief. God bless. Terry Groth (Canyon Ferry, MT)

Sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed volunteering with Lou Ann at the Pioneer Museum. She was a very nice lady. Tracy Grazley (Livingston, MT)

November 10, 2017
To the Westlake Family, You have my sincere condolences. Words often can not convey our feelings when we lose a dear loved one. May the precious memories that you shared with Lou Ann be a source of comfort. I have found the words at Psalm 34:18 reassuring; God "is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those crushed in spirit." May He strengthen you during this difficult time. — Donna Howard (, MD)
