Louise Layne age 77, wife of the late Bobby Douglas Layne, entered eternal rest on Sunday May 17, 2020 at The Compassionate Care Center in Richmond, KY. Louise was born in Oneida, Kentucky to the late Robert and May Boggs. She was a graduate of Berea High School and Western Kentucky University. She was retired from the Brevard County Schools in Florida where she served as an office manager and bookkeeper at Meadowlane Elementary School. Prior to that, she was employed by Berea Hospital and Space Coast Credit Union. Louise loved the Lord. She enjoyed attending services at Southland Christian Church. Her faith sustained her as she fought debilitating disease and grieving the loss of the love of her life.
The joys of her life were her husband Doug and her family. She was full of life, love, laughter and was always the life of the party. Louise loved the beach, shopping trips, storytelling, bridge, bunko, dancing, Kentucky basketball, and cookouts with family and friends. She was affectionately given the title of Deputy of Forest and Center Streets. There was always room on her porch for visitors when she was on duty.
Louise is survived by her children Jeff (Tanya) Layne and Nikki (John) Nixon, her sisters-in-law Mildred South and Kaye Layne and her brother in-law Bud (Gloria) Layne, her brothers Francis (Jennie) Boggs and Benny (Glenda) Boggs, and grandchildren: Brittany Todd, Alex and Laura Layne, Clay Layne, and Abigail Layne, great-granddaughter Carolina Layne and great-grandson Jaxon Layne.

Louise was a Zeta Tau Omega Sister at Western KY State College in the 60's. My heart goes out to her family and friends, especially during this time of Pandemic restrictions, when funerals for comfort and closure aren't allowed. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers for comfort and peace as you mourn your great loss. Louise will be missed.
