Louise married Harry "Buddy" Craig in May of 1958. In her earlier years Louise worked at Keystone Foods in Bryn Mawr as Administrator for the Director of Marketing and was proud of the work she was doing. While employed there, she and her husband purchased Craig's Tavern in Drexel Hill, PA in 1986. At the Jersey shore she loved the beach, riding her bike to the shops and meeting friends for lunch or dinner at the Windrift or the Deauville Inn. A puzzle could always be found on her table waiting to be finished. She enjoyed sewing and could make just about anything. There are many fond memories of the many Halloween costumes she made for the family. She raised her seven children while her husband worked full time during the day and bartended at night.
