Louise M. LeCleir was born December 21, 1912 in Fargo, ND to Paul and Emily (Williams) Lisburg. She was raised and educated in Fargo. She was employed with Armour & Company. Louise was united in marriage to William LeCleir November 30, 1946 in Fargo. They made their home in West Fargo until moving to a farm near Detroit Lakes in 1949.

Louise learned and practiced reflexology until her health no longer allowed her to do so. She and Bill moved into Detroit Lakes in 1979 and to Winchester on Washington in 2000. Bill died in 2002. Louise moved to Oak Crossing in April 2009.

Louise loved her church and her work as a reflexologist, because of the help it gave to her clients. She also enjoyed her time on the farm.

Surviving Louise are a sister, Barbara Burley of Fargo; and a brother, Bernard Lisburg of West Fargo.

In addition to her husband, Bill, Louise was preceded in death by a brother, Roy; and three sisters, Emma, Mary, and Rose.
