SALEM, OHIO — HORNER – Louise (Chipukites), 96, Salem, Ohio, formerly of Summerhill, passed away Sunday, April 28, 2013. Loving wife of 60 years to the late Russell Horner. Dear sister to 15 siblings. Devoted mother of Patricia Williams, Josephine Moldovan, Tana (Roger) Crabtree, Russell (Mira) Horner, Terry (Debbie) Horner, Lori (Richard) Sakacs, Lisa (William) Thompson and the late Sandra Miller, who died in 2008. Also survived by 22 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild and two stepgrandchildren. Born Sept. 26, 1916, in Coal Run, Pa., Louise spent two years in New York City as a governess, an experience that formed her interest in fashion. She spent most of her married life near Wilmore and the last 11 years in North Lima, Ohio, with Lori and Richard, her wonderful caregivers. The love and joy of Louise’s life were her family, to whom she displayed a fierce loyalty. She was known for her gentle, loving spirit and determined work ethic. She was an extraordinary cook, a skilled seamstress and needlepointer and expert flower gardener. Louise had a lifelong passion for polka music and pretty clothes. We will miss her unique sense of humor, sage words of wisdom and obscure Lithuanian proverbs. Arrangements were provided by Szabo Funeral Home. The family will hold a private service to celebrate Louise’s life at the Horner family cemetery in June. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Essex of Salem III, Salem, Ohio.
