Louise Hagan

Louise Kelly Hagan was born June 12, 1917, and died on January 18, 2013.  

Louise left her hospital bed and wheelchair behind to join her Savior and many friends and relatives awaiting her arrival in heaven.  She was a very special lady to all who knew her.  She always had a smile, loved attending church, loved gospel music and singing along.  She never complained and didn't require much for herself, rather her life was spent serving others. Our beautiful mother lived a life of grace and strength for 95 years, for which each one of us have become better people.  She gave us and all who knew her unconditional love and lifted us every day. 

She owned and operated a foster Home for the elderly and later was licensed by the state to care for the mentally ill, which she did for many years.  She was a faithful member of the East Lake Church of the Nazarene for over 60 years, serving as board member, Sunday School teacher, choir member, and she also ministered to others with food, clothing and transportation to church. Some years ago the church had a special service honoring her for her accomplishments of serving her church and community.  More recently, she has been attending church with her daughter at Crossroads Baptist Church in Ooltewah.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, Clure Hagan, son, Al Hagan, parents, Winford and Nell Collins Kelly, sister, Margaret Kelly Beaty, brother, Woodrow Kelly, two grandsons, David and John Gann of Delaware, and recently, great-granddaughter, Taylor Veal.

She is survived by seven children and their spouses who love and adore her, five daughters, Shirley (Duane) Drews of Racine, WI; Carolyn (Charlie) Brown of Manchester; Mary (Johnny) Jones of East Ridge; Barbara (Millard) Brown of McDonald; and Kathy (David) Majors of Chattanooga; two sons, Paul (Diane) Gann of Bear, Delaware; David (Bobbie) Hagan of Chattanooga; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to Dr. Calvin Bryan and all of the Home Health nurses and care givers who brought her much joy and made her quality of life much better for many years. Also special thanks to those who prayed for her and those who took time to spark that great laugh within her.

The Celebration of Life service will be held at Heritage Funeral Home at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 21, with the Reverend Rob Borders officiating.

Burial will follow at Chattanooga Memorial Park.
