J. Louise (Faulkner) Faulx, 89, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 19, 2019, at Jefferson Manor in Brookville, Pa.
She was born June 9, 1930, and was the daughter of Frank A. and Lida I. (Klingensmith) Faulkner.

Growing up, she lived in Rayburn Township, Troy Hill, and North Buffalo Township.
After marrying, she resided in Ford City.
Along with her sister Bertha, she fondly cared for her brother Eugene (Gene) and he remained by her side until her last day.
Also, as the years went on, George needed extra care and Louise lovingly cared for him and Gene.

She attended Kittanning Schools and worked at Woolworth’s 5 and 10 as a clerk and sign maker, Bish Motors in Ford City as a bookkeeper, Brocious Pipe as a bookkeeper, and for DiMond Chiropractic as a receptionist.
Also, she worked along side George in his Faulx Alignment Service business and was a Notary. While working at Bish’s and Dr. DiMond’s, Gene accompanied her.
Louise enjoyed gardening, canning, mowing grass, and cooking and was known for her pineapple upside down cake, sweet potatoes with marshmallow topping, and applesauce fruitcake.
She was a long-time member of St. Luke’s United Church of Christ in Kittanning and enjoyed attending church dinners there and in the neighboring communities. Festivals and the Butler Fair were favorites of hers.
