Louise R. Walling (nee Schofield)
Mrs. Louise R. Walling, age 72, of Dover, DE, passed away on Monday, March 14, 2011, surrounded by her loving family.
A native Delawarean, Louise was born in Wilmington on October 9, 1938, daughter of the late George and Suphronie (Chambers) Schofield. She was a talented homemaker throughout her life and was proud to support her husbands career by being a devoted and resourceful Army wife.

She is survived by her daughters, Judith and husband, Earl Desbrow, of Dover, DE, and Catherine of Delaware City, DE; granddaughters, Lynn and Rachel, great grandsons Jacob, Ryan, and Jason; brothers and sisters; extended family members; and numerous and dear lifelong friends made throughout her travels during her husbands military career.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the very special staff and friends working on the Holly Unit at Capitol Health Care.
