Louise S Bryer

Louise S. Bryer, age 96 of Linn, passed away Friday, September 16, 2016, at Linn Living and Rehab Center.

Louise was born October 17, 1919, in Providence, RI, a daughter to the late Charles and Cecilia (Young) Swanson.

Louise was a 1937 graduate of East Providence High School in Rhode Island.

On October 7, 1943, she was united in marriage to James Walter Bryer in Rhode Island. He preceded her in death on March 13, 2008.

Louise was a bookkeeper and billing clerk for several years. She was a member of St. Catherine LaBoure Catholic Church in Cahokia, IL for 47 years.

Louise enjoyed reading, playing card especially Bridge and Rummy, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, going on Sunday drives to see the fall colors, and loved all of God's creation. She was a very wise, thoughtful person and always was thinking of others. Her sunny disposition earned her the nickname "Smiley" at the nursing home. Louise was very strong in her faith with a special devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. She was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed by her family.

Louise is survived by: one son, Dr. James W. Bryer, Jr. (Joanie) of St. Cloud, MN; one daughter, Judy B. Skaggs (Dennis) of Loose Creek; eight grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
