Louise Reynolds Werner, “Weezie”, left this world gracefully and peacefully on June 9, 2019 after 75 years of sharing her love of life with all she met. She was born June 20, 1943, the daughter of Ruth Knight Reynolds and Daniel Leon Reynolds in Pittsburgh, PA.

Louise graduated from the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Eden Hall and Duquesne University. She taught school in Prince George’s County, Maryland and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Louise married George Werner on July 16, 1966. She delighted in all things related to her family. Weezie was a beloved friend and shared a special bond with her sister, Jody Flood. Louise was bright and lively and possessed a delightful sense of humor.

Weezie was a loving wife, amazing mother, and doting grandmother. Louise was blessed with gifts of service and hospitality. During her marriage she enthusiastically embraced new horizons. She made family homes in Pennsylvania, Florida, and Oklahoma.

Louise was active in her church. She was a religious education teacher, a bible study leader, and she taught in summer bible school. She served as an Eucharistic minister-greeter and altar server.

Her greatest pleasure was her family. Weezie enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s activities and was very proud of their accomplishments. She is survived by her husband, George Werner, their daughters, Beth DeGrace and Amy Johnson, their husbands, Derek DeGrace and Chip Johnson, along with her sister, Jody, and her brother, Daniel Reynolds.

The five joys of Weezie’s life were her amazing grandkids, Ingrid and Reynolds Johnson and Lily, Frederic, and Alex DeGrace.

  1. Anyone that ever met Weezie loved her. She was a joy to be around. We shared many meals with her and George and cherished every moment we spent with them. When I think of Weezie, this Bible verse comes to mind; I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

  2. Weezie was a wonderful person and great friend. She always made me feel welcomed and loved. I shall miss her dearly.

  3. I know Weezie is driving around all the kids who went to Heaven to soon to take them swimming at the farm, to get hair cuts, fun days at amusement parks, to see Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (again!), and to take music lessons. Along the way she is teaching them to enjoy life, be grateful, LAUGH and play SNAKE! I will miss her laugh, hilarious cards and notes and just her beautiful presence on this earth. I find comfort in her spirit which is still here with her friends and family, who was so precious to her.

  4. I’ve only met weezie three and a half years ago, but in those years she became a cherished friend. I’ll forever remember her loving and caring spirit and miss our long gossip conversations (and her welcomed advice). She will never be forgotten.

  5. We absolutely adored Weezie and love the whole family so much. It is crazy that meeting them in a basement in Downtown Edmond could turn into a life long friendship. She was an incredible woman and brought so much generosity and love into the world and everyone around her. I will remember all of the meaningful conversations we had and I will continue to try to live up to the Louise Werner standard of living life to the fullest, loving my family and friends with all of my heart, being generous to others and laughing out loud as much as possible. We love you all!

  6. Weezie was always a ray of light and could always make me laugh. The love she had for George and her family was always inspirational. I will miss her dearly!

  7. So full of life, ready to take on anything in her path. I’ve only known Louise for thirteen years, but I feel I’ve been uplifted by her positive attitude and I will from now on. She and George are both people that have such a great sense of humor and energy that everyone loved to be around. She will be truely missed.
