Louise was born on Jan. 19, 1931, to Howard and Emma W. Hall in Pocatello, Idaho. She attended five different colleges in Pocatello, Seattle, Wash., and Tacoma, Wash. She belonged to art guilds in Wichita, Kan. She also started painting ceramics and porcelain at Viola Tuckers Shop. At the age of 46, she started taking art lessons in water colors and oils. She did both under a professor by the name of Elbe. He [sic] art work went all over. Some sold in England, Germany and the West Bank of the Jordan.
While in the arts, she studied under Betty Lungren, Barbara Ragsdale, Perry Archer, Gilliam, Evelyn Woodard, Robert Thomas, and the artist known as the Flint Hills artist of Kansas, where she learned how to paint on raw canvas, doing cattle, horses, and windmills. She developed her own technique. Most people thought her painting looked ethereal. She and her late husband were active in church, the school system and all the charities.
Survivors include her son, Kevin Barth of Nampa; two brothers, C. G. Hall and Richard Hall of Wichita, Kan.; and a sister, Myrtle Lucille Hall Sorensen.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth; two brothers, Howard and William Joseph, whom died before her birth; and a sister, Clara C. hall Smith, whom died in 1964.
