"Louise" as she was known, was born December 15, 1924, in Johnson, OH, the daughter of Davis Earl and Bertha Ida (Kearns) Denman.

She was a 1942 graduate of Greene High School. She then attended Warren Business College and worked as a secretary for a time for Thomas Steel. She then worked for 19 years as a cook and cashier for the Champion Schools, retiring in 1986.

Louise married Rodger H. DiDay on August 25, 1946. They shared 43 years of marriage and many happy memories together until his passing October 30, 1989.

She was a longtime member of Champion Christian Church since 1950. She was very active in her church including the Rachel Circle, the CWF officers, the Diaconate, and she helped with many other projects. She was also an active member of the Champion American Legion Clifford Emery Unit 734 Auxiliary for 45 years, the Champion Fire Department Auxiliary, Champion VIP, and the Central Christian 50+. She served as treasurer for the Warren Area Church Women United, and was a helper, leader, and Den Mother with the Girl Scouts for several years. Louise loved and enjoyed all five generations of her family, including cooking dinners every holiday, camping, and vacations. She also enjoyed canning, gardening, baking, especially nut rolls, and volunteering for others.

Louise is survived by three children; Carolyn L. Alavez, of Dallas, TX, Janice M. Dykes, of Howland, and Jerry R. DiDay, of Columbus. She also leaves behind five grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, and a great great granddaughter.
