    The Endter and Ulmen families enjoyed countless hours of playing Sheepshead and quibbling over who laid down the worst hand of cards! Lou's siblings and their families spent many years "Up North" in Oconto County enjoying campfires, telling stories, playing rounds of charades and scaring the grandchildren with flashlights on night walks to the lake. Lou's siblings and their families were blessed to enjoy each other's company, spending many happy hours together.

    Lou enjoyed the simple things in life. She liked to travel and see new things, but was just as happy to relax in her breezeway or back yard swing visiting with family. After losing her husband, Lou learned to drive, thanks to her younger sister, Evie. She was often heard to enthusiastically say, "Let's put a little gas in the car and, Go!"

    She will be long remembered and loved by her children: Robert (Naomi) Endter, Mary Biese, Rose (Ron) Thurk, Carol (William) O'Neill, eight grandchildren: Chris (John) Doverspike, Andrea Endter, Laura Endter, Robert (Emily) Endter, Brian (Jen) Biese, Jessica Thurk, Ryan (Shannon) Thurk, Katrina O'Neill and nine great-grandchildren: twins Hunter and Sienna, Seth, Chloe, Eva, Tyler, Dylan, Trevor and Logan as well as many nieces, nephews and other relatives and good friends.

He was an employee of the North Shore and the Chicago & Northwestern railway fro many years at the round house of the Ashland division until about five years ago his failing health compelled him to give up active work. His wife died here eleven years ago.
