In Loving Memory

Garavaglia, Louise Angeline (nee Torno)

June 28, 1935 - January 19, 2024

Louise Angeline Torno-Garavaglia joined her beloved husband Tom in eternal peace on his birthday, January 19 2024.  Anointed in the sacrament of the Holy Church, Louise’s faith will reunite her with family, friends and loved ones, including parents Louis and Caroline Torno, and brother John (Edith).  She is survived by son Bob (Theresa), son Steve (Mary Ann), daughter Laurie (Tony), granddaughter Kim (Trey), grandson Patrick (Nikki), niece Donna (Bob), and many other family and friends.  Raised by the “greatest generation”, she remained strong and rallied through any hardship until the end.  With the passing of her parents and husband before their times, Louise raised 3 young children by herself and built a career as Office Manager of the Catholic Cemeteries.

A memorial Mass will be held on Saturday January 27th at 10:00 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church on the Hill, with interment to follow at Resurrection Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Society of St Vincent dePaul or the Hill Sick and Elderly.

  6. So very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Louise was a dear friend of Lena Belloli -my husband’s late aunt.
    I also knew Louise as a volunteer at Incarnate Word Hospital in the 1980’s when I worked there as the volunteer coordinator. She was always pleasant and very caring. May she rest in peace

  7. Laurie, Bob and Steve … So sorry for your loss. Louise was a dear friend and member of the women’s club that met monthly to play cards, eat and share recipes, sharing the latest happenings of the members husbands and children … going back 40 to 60 years. I will miss her as all the club members will.

  8. We shared mostly a professional relationship with Louise for almost thirty years. Yet always in midst of talking about business matters, we would catch up on our personal lives and family matters. Even just hearing her voice on the phone will be missed, we are fortunate to have had her in our lives.

    Our best to the family.
