Louise Anne Mayo
PUTNAM — Louise Anne Mayo, 69, died Feb. 28, 2021 at Day Kimball Hospital. She was born Dec. 30, 1951, daughter of the late Louis and Glenna Ericson. She graduated from Putnam High School, and worked for Acme White Cross, as well as Crabtree and Evelyn and Linemaster Switch.
Known for her sharp wit and sense of humor, she brought joy and light into every room she was in. After retiring from Linemaster Switch in 2009, she dedicated her time to community service, crocheting hundreds of baby blankets for the Diaper Bank at IHSP-Daily Bread in Putnam. She also donated to the food bank at Daily Bread, often using her retirement income to buy holiday dinners for families in need.
She leaves her husband, Dennis Mayo of Putnam; daughter, Sheri Houghton (Shawn) of Putnam; son, Matthew Mayo and his husband Ernest McLemore in Birmingham, Ala.; grandchild, Haley Houghton and their fiancé Matthew Brisco, and seven brothers and sisters. She is predeceased by her mother and father, Louis and Glenna Ericson, and a brother. Services were private. A small outdoor gathering of remembrance for family and close friends will be held later in the spring. Donations: Food and Diaper Bank at IHSP-Daily Bread in Putnam; or the American Cancer Society. Gilman Funeral Home & Crematory, 104 Church St, Putnam.
