Louise J. Long

June 8, 1933 — October 15, 2022

Louise J. Long was ushered by angels to her eternal home in Heaven on October 15, 2022. Louise was born to the late Albert and Allie Haase , in the Township of Borth, Wisconsin on June 8, 1933. She was 89 years old at the time of her passing.

She was reunited with her husband, the love of her life: William F. Long Jr., her sister Mildred Schmirler, her sister in law Dorothy (Long) Fuller and many others who preceded her in death, to live in the presence of Jesus Christ forever.

She leaves behind her daughter Deborah A. Ulrich and her son David W. Long (Heather), both of Oshkosh, Wisconsin . Louise was very close to her children.

‘’Debbie’’ always said her Mom was her greatest “Cheerleader”, counselor, confidant and best Mom God could’ve chosen for her. Both Debbie and David were very faithful in calling their Mom everyday for many years, just to visit and see how she was doing. When our small family got together, Louise always looked forward to David’s humorous stories that came from his own life experiences. Louise had a wonderful sense of humor and a very contagious laugh. She never took herself too seriously. Her favorite quote being: “It Is What It Is”.

She is also survived by her granddaughter: Rebecca A. Abreu, with whom she had an extraordinary bond. Along with her great grandsons: Maxwell A. Abreu and Zakary A. Abreu, whom she both adored. All from St. Augustine, Florida. Also, her loving niece Jane A. Schmirler. ‘’Janie” has been a great source of strength, comfort and help as we all experienced this journey together.

Louise leaves behind many other nieces and nephews, cousins and a multitude of friends.

Louise loved music and also played several instruments, including the piano, organ, coronet and cello.

She had very fond memories of playing the cello while in high school. She was proud of her achievement of going to the Wisconsin State competition and placing second, playing the song Ave’ Maria.

Louise was active with the youth at the First Baptist Temple from the age of 7 all through her teenage years. She was part of a gospel trio with her sister “Millie” and Dorothy (Long) Fuller. They practiced a lot because they just loved being together. The trio sang at the Temple and at various small churches in the area. After Louise married, she loved singing Christian duets with her husband. Together they sang at churches, weddings and funerals.

Louise worked at Mercy Medical Center for a number of years before moving to California in the late 60’s; with her husband and two children. While living there she worked for The Bank of America. Three years later, the family decided to move back to Oshkosh.

After moving back to Oshkosh, Louise worked at Parkview Health Center as a Unit Assistant for nearly 30 years. She loved the residents and the people she worked with. Louise made many lifelong friends at Parkview that remained close with her for many years. Especially friends of over 40 years:

Debi Guenther whom she shared lots of experiences and especially many laughs..and lunches.

Nora Sebora and many others kept in contact and also got together all through Louise’s retirement years.

After her retirement, she enjoyed visiting her Florida family for several months at a time during the winter. Her visits were a true gift. Many more friends and precious memories were made.

Louise had a gift of listening, helping and encouraging people wherever she was.

Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, tithing to her church, donating to organizations, charities and missionaries that she believed in was her passion.

She was never afraid to stand up for her own personal convictions and beliefs.

Louise also liked keeping busy. She was an avid reader and loved Studying the Bible.

Years ago she made many counted cross stitch pieces, decoupage wall hangings and made personalized photo albums for her family. Louise also had a real talent for color selection when she discovered “Adult Coloring”. Many pages beautiful enough to be framed.

Louise was not afraid of technology. She embraced it. She got her first computer and printer after she retired.

Her granddaughter Rebecca made it a priority to gift her Grandma “Wiessa” with any new device that came out. Louise was always excited to learn how to use every device she had.

For those she left behind, we will grieve. For Louise, she is rejoicing. She was very ready to go to her eternal heavenly home, where there will be no more sorrow, no more tears, no more pain.

Louise cherished her strong Christian faith and her greatest desire was that family and friends would join her in Heaven by placing their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. ‘’For by grace you are saved by faith and that not of yourself it is a gift of God. Not by works lest anyone should boast”. Ephesians 2:8-9.

The Salvation message can be found in the Bible’s New Testament John 14:1-6 and also John 3:15-18.

The family would like to thank the staff at Parkview Health Center for all the genuine loving care and kindness they gave to her.

A Memorial Service for Louise will be held on Monday, October 24, 2022 at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home-Westside, located at 100 Lake Pointe Drive in Oshkosh. Visitation will be at 9:00 AM until the time of service at 11:00 AM. Following the service, a lunch will be provided.

When tomorrow start’s without me, please try to understand.

That an Angel came and called my name

The Angel said my place was ready

In Heaven far above

And, that I have to leave behind those I dearly love

But when I walked through Heaven’s gates

I felt so much at home

For God looked down, smiled at me

And told me “welcome home”

So when tomorrow starts without me,

don’t think we’re far apart,

For every time you think of me,

I’m right there in your heart
