September 19, 1939 - February 17, 2022
God called Louise B. Henrichs home at the age of 82. Louise was born at the home of her aunt in Fairhope, AL, on September 19, 1939, to Blanch (Dub) Nelson Booker, Sr., of Goodway, AL, and Bessie (Muggins) Dyal Booker, of Uriah, AL. Louise is preceded in death by both her parents, an older brother, Bennett D. Booker, an infant sister, Mary Sue and husband, of 48 years, Charles (Butch) Henrichs, from 1957-2006. Louise is survived by two daughters; Vickie H. McCroan and son-in-law, Kevin L. McCroan; Penny L. Henson and son-in-law Travis Henson. Loved by four grandchildren, Sara Jackson, of Ocala, FL, and husband, David; Adam Cannon, of Perry, FL, and wife Jessica; Savana McConnell, of Pensacola, FL; Kacey McConnell, and wife, Sierra, of Hendersonville, NC. Louise was always Nannie to her 10 great grandchildren; Boston, Quinton, Hailey, Chloe, James, Noah, Kane, Dayten, Olivia, Memphis; one step-grandson, Nathan. She had a deep love for the people around her, fierce and always ready with good advice. To Louise’s younger sisters, Faye Westholm and Laura Watson (brother-in-law, Terry Watson), two younger brothers, Charles (Mickey) Booker (sister-in-law, Patricia) and B. Nelson Booker, Jr. (sister-in-law, Sandra), she was the family cornerstone, strong, independent and beautiful. She was a free spirit who wasn’t afraid to act boldly. She often recalled childhood memories and will never be forgotten. She cherished every moment spent at family gatherings. The love and support her brothers and sisters gave her filled her days with love, joy and laughter. March, 1955, at East Hill Baptist Church of Pensacola, FL, Louise gave her life to Christ by profession of faith and baptism; then June, 1967, she re-dedicated her life in baptism at Kelly Avenue Baptist Church. Until her passing, she was a member of Marcus Pointe Baptist Church. Louise found strength, comfort and assurance in her relationship with the Lord. She knew beyond all doubt and with all assurance heaven was her home. The Lord carried Louise through every trial right up to glory. Despite the deep grief we who remain feel, we have gathered to celebrate an amazing sister, mother and friend. She leaves behind a life well-lived. All who knew her knew there was nothing more Louise wanted to do than be a blessing and help to others. She loved to laugh and often woke herself up from a deep sleep laughing. She was dedicated to her family and close friends. Her compassion for others span over a period of 30 years as an 11th Hour Hospice Volunteer, Guardian Ad-Litem Volunteer and Ombudsman Volunteer for the States of Florida and North Carolina. She held the hand of the dying, was a case worker for the abused, abandoned or neglected children and an advocate for the health, safety, welfare and rights of elderly residents in long-term facilities. It didn’t take long after moving to Keaton Beach before Louise knew she needed to supplement a meager income. So she put her nose to the grindstone and successfully broke ground 1986 on what was to become Louise Henrichs Beach Realty. She always said God had been good to her and she never understood why. Thriving business, precious family, faithful and caring friends. By 1998, Louise decided it was time to retire, so off she went in search of her retirement home. Leaving the business to be run with her daughter, Vickie. Louise and Butch, purchased ground in the Appalachain Smoky Mountains of Franklin, NC, and built a home before finally moving back to Pensacola in 2001 to be with family. If we could ask Louise on this day what life taught her in the 82 years she was given to be with famly and friends she would probably tell you this. “The Lord God is mighty in every situation and circumstance. There is no limit to His power and grace. He has continually watched over his child. No matter where your life path takes you, always remember you are never alone; even in death.” Louise, like Paul in II Corinthians 12:10, found grace in the midst of weakness and strength to make the final crossing. She would gladly spend more time with those she loved, doing the things she enjoyed, but today she is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rejoicing she has made her final move and home at last. One of her favorite hymns went like this: I’m living on the mountain; underneath the cloudless sky, I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry, OH, yes!! I’m feasting on the manna from a beautiful supply, for I am dwelling in Beulah Land. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Covenant Hospice of Pensacola.
