A native of Springfield Vermont, Louise was the daughter of Michael and Clara Sirosky. She was a graduate of Springfield HS and Northampton Commercial College. Following her graduation from college she worked as a secretary for Mass Mutual Insurance Company in Springfield, MA and later Combustion Engineering in Windsor, CT. While employed at Combustion, she met Jack and they were married in 1965. Louise and Jack were residents of Connecticut, mostly in the town of Granby, for more than 40 years, before retiring to Seneca, SC in 2006. In the early 1990’s they lived in South Africa and in Italy (two years each) on expat assignments. She kept her ties to VT through a timeshare property at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, which she and Jack visited annually for nearly 40 years. Both before and after retirement they traveled extensively, visiting more than 30 countries and every continent except Antarctica. Some of their adventures included walking among adult lions in Zimbabwe, cuddling lion cubs in South Africa, meeting Lynda B. Robb at the LBJ Ranch, and meeting Maria Von Trapp. Through their travels they developed enduring friendships with people and families around the world and took pleasure in hosting many of these friends when they visited the United States. Louise was a prize-winning decorative painter, who sold some of her creations via her own craft business. She liked to shop and was among the world’s best bargain hunters in her prime. She enjoyed collecting things and over the years assembled an impressive array of items, each of which had a story behind it that linked to some event or experience in her life. She was a people person who had a knack for learning somebody’s whole life story over a casual conversation in a grocery store checkout line. What she loved best however, was being a wife, mother, and grandmother and it is in those roles that she will be most dearly missed. In addition to her husband, Louise is survived by two sons, Dan Makuch of Marietta, GA, his wife Kim and their children Nick and Carsen, John Makuch of Gainesville, GA, his wife Temple and their daughters Mackie and Brooke, a daughter, Michelle Makuch of Atlanta, GA, a brother, Charles Sirosky of Newport, NH, multiple nieces and nephews and many other cherished family members.
