 spouse Homer Forrest Payne in Toccoa. Louise and her husband, Homer,  lived in Toccoa GA,

 They were active and faithful members of Parkview Baptist church in Fort Pierce and then
 First Baptist Church in Blairsville. Mrs. Payne most recently attended House of Prayer in Blairsville.
Louise worked as a school bus driver for many years in St Lucie County Florida. After moving to Georgia,
 she traveled with Homer all over the East as he repaired and installed Heidelberg printing presses.
 The couple enjoyed hosting many friends and family in their home in Blairsville and hosted many
 family reunions and community potlucks. Louise was active in her Sunday school classes and loved to
 help serve hotdogs and popcorn at church functions. She loved to cook, bake and entertain and was well
 known for her secret beloved "mufket" recipe. She worked as a hostess at Zaxby's of Blairsville for a
 number of years where she loved and impacted the lives of her coworkers and the community by sharing
 her smile, her love of Jesus and her southern hospitality. She was preceded in death by her spouse, Homer Payne; mother, Sarah

 lifetime friend and never met a stranger. The family would like to express heartfelt gratitude to
