Louise was born Jan. 31, 1937, at Ringling, to the late Sherman Orville and Thelma Lou (Lyle) Nell. She passed away peacefully to be with the Lord Monday, July 15, 2013, at Wichita Falls, Texas.

On June 18, 1955, she married her high school sweetheart, Charles Scribner, of Lone Grove. They moved to Wichita Falls and became lifelong residents. She was a homemaker, and when her children were older, she embarked on a new challenge and attended college. She earned her bachelor's degree at Midwestern State University, and soon entered the business world and retired a successful business woman. Louise was a beloved mother and "Nanou."

She was preceded in death by her father and mother; infant brother, Orville Ray; brother, Lewis; and husband, Charles.

She is survived by her son, Brent and wife, Joni, and three grandchildren, Ben, Sam and Madi, who loved and cared for her along with sister, Teresa Johnson, of Wichita Falls, Texas, and brother, D.J. Nell and wife, Sharon, of Ringling. She is also survived by sons, Kevin and family of Wichita Falls, Texas, and Jeff and family; four other grandchildren and three great-grandchildren; brothers, Don and Jerry; and many other in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Nanou enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow up, and cherished being a part of everything they did. We will miss our Nanou very much.

Pallbearers will be family and friends.
