The Family very much appreciates the Staff at Clearwater Nursing and Rehab and Rivercross Hospice. Louise was born on Friday, January 27, 1928 in Rural Clearwater, Kansas. She was fifth of seven children born to John Elton Mourning, Sr, and Eda Pauline (Loger) Mourning. She was united in marriage to Raymond William Rink on May 15, 1949 in Clearwater, Kansas. He preceded her in death on September 9, 2013. Louise had many life priorities, topping the list was Family, followed by cooking and baking. Louise made sure noone on the farm went hungry, ever! She served full meals and the BEST pie ever! She was very active on the farm including driving the wheat truck. Louise did a little traveling during her life but she was just as satisfied and content sitting at home on the back porch.
