Louise Massey (nee Lockwood) has gone home to see her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Louise was born Oct. 12, 1921 in Newark, New Jersey. She married Craig Massey in 1941. Together they dedicated their lives to serving the Lord through pastorates in Mt. Morris, New York; Altoona, Pennsylvania; Des Plaines, Illinois and Rhinelander. Later they traveled throughout the country doing marriage and family living seminars in connection with Moody Bible Institute and Family Life Radio. Because of Craig's eyesight, Louise did all the bookkeeping, scheduling and driving for the seminars and often said her spiritual gift was driving.
After Craig's death in 1999, Louise moved to Windsor Park where she was involved in teaching English as a second language and playing in the hand bell choir. She attended Wheaton Bible Church.
Louise was preceded in death by her husband, Craig Massey, and her son-in-law, Dr. Ken Weddle. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Weddle and her son, Roger (Sally) Massey; her grandchildren: Kelli (Steve) Wick, Jeff (Cindy) Weddle; Beth Massey and Lindy (Andrew) Dahl and her great-grandchildren: Chloe, Mallory and Carter Wick and Belinda, Elizabeth and Jacob Weddle.
Services were held in the chapel at Wheaton Bible Church, West Chicago, Illinois. Louise's grandson, Jeff Weddle of Rhinelander Bible Church, officiated.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial gifts be sent to Windsor Park; Carol Stream, Illinois; Wheaton Bible Church, Winfield, Illinois or Rhinelander Bible Church, Rhinelander.
