Obituary for Louise E. May

Louise E. May, 90, of Basehor, KS passed away on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at her home. Graveside funeral services will be at 1:00 pm, Monday, July 6, at Mt. Sidney Cemetery in Linwood, KS. The family suggests memorial contributions to either Leavenworth County Meals on Wheels/Council on Aging or Kansas Palliative Care or Walnut Grove Bible Church in care of the funeral home. Louise was born on Dec. 29, 1929 in Medoc, Mo. And was married on September 6, 1947, Dan and Louise moved to the Bonner Springs, Linwood, and Basehor, Ks area where they lived the rest of their lives.
The majority of her time working outside of the home was spent at the Basehor-Linwood School District, where she retired after 25+ years in 2002. She filled many roles in the school district including school bus driver, maintenance, and food service. Louise enjoyed gardening, cooking/canning, playing cards, camping and anything to do with caring for and enjoying her large family “brood”. She was a faithful woman who accepted Jesus as her Savior at a young age and finally took the “plunge” and was baptized on January 28, 2001. She kept her baptismal record in her lockbox as that was how important it was to her.
She had a funny sense of humor and has many one-liners that will live on forever with each who knew her. “See you in the funny papers!”
She was preceded in death by her husband Daniel D. May in 2002, one daughter Peggy Cooper in 2019 and two son-in-laws Larry C. Gilbert, Sr. in 1998 and Lindsey E. Cooper in 2014. She is survived by five children Dale May and his wife Liz of North Kansas City, MO; Jim May and his wife Pam of Logan, OH; Pat Gilbert of Linwood, KS; Margaret Morrell and her husband Tom of Bonner Springs, KS and Vicki Allen and her husband Gary of Basehor, KS. 22 Grandchildren and many Great and Great Great grandchildren and nieces and nephews as well as other family and friends that will miss her greatly.

Sad to hear. Miss May taught me a lot of life lessons when I worked with her at the school during the summers. She was a wonderful lady. So sorry for your loss.

So very sorry to hear of her passing. The good thoughts. She’s with Dan again with all her memories and watching over the rest of her brood with that big smile from above. Rest In Peace

Larry Booth I spent many years working with that special lady down at Linwood. She always had a smile on her face and was one of the hardest working people and kindest I ever met. I am so sorry for your loss, she was a very special person.

The special time Jim and I spent with her during our stay with her during her leg surgery recovery, was my favorite time we shared with Louise. Every night the Golden Girls theme song would play on tv and to this day when I watch the Golden Girls myself I think of Louise and the time we had with her. Love and miss her❤️

May God bless all her family with peace and comfort.
