Louise Hancock
March 5, 1944 - November 2, 2017

La Grange-Sara Louise “Weezie” Hancock, 73, of La Grange, passed away Thursday, November 2, 2017. Louise was born March 5, 1944 in Jones County to Doug Murphy and the late Nellie Batts Hancock.

A loving and giving woman, Weezie was truly dedicated to her husband, Rudy, and was always willing to step in and help others in need. She enjoyed cooking and sewing. Weezie loved spending summers canning vegetables and fruit for the winter. She liked relaxing with the sounds of good gospel music, a crossword puzzle or coloring a masterpiece in her coloring book. Weezie never saw a yard sale she didn’t like. Her family has fond memories of her bright smile, her delicious collards and the best banana pudding ever. Nothing was better to her than having a house full of family and children. Her sweet memory will continue to shine bright in the hearts of her family.

A service to celebrate and honor Louise’s life will be held Monday, November 6, 2017 at 2 p.m. from Rouse Funeral Home. Burial will follow at the Murphy Family Cemetery.

Louise is survived by her husband, Rudy V. Hancock; three children, Steve Hancock and wife, Donna, Bryan Hancock and companion, Mary Henderson, and Sharon Abreu and husband, Nestor; six grandchildren, Jason, Steven and wife, Katie, Michael, Junior, Shannon and husband, Sean, and Kyle and wife, Tahimi; four great-grandchildren, Jaiden, Austin Marie, Emma and Avery; her father and step-mother, Doug and Joanne Murphy; siblings, Mary E.
