Louise Whitlock Gregory, who has died of natural causes at age 90, enjoyed a number of pursuits. Theses included reading, gardening, observing birds and nature in general, shopping, moving (and decorating her new residences), family time (including visits with "granddogs" and other pets), and listening to a variety of music. During the last year of her life, Mrs. Gregory also wrote for her family a memoir on her rural childhood. Born in Lebanon, KY, Mrs. Gregory was the youngest of 13 children. Having come to Washington, D.C., foe work following high school graduation in Tennessee, Miss Whitlock met Ernest Kelsey Gregory, a house painter, and the two married in 1942. The Gregory's raised five daughters to adulthood in then D.C. area. They created a warm home environment, with books, support for the children in their education and other interests, a well kept house, yard, and garden, and Mrs. Gregory's tasty home cooking. A phone company and federal worker during W.W.II era, Mrs. Gregory retired from the U.S. Government after having returned to the federal workforce as a clerk-typist when the children were older. Among Mrs. Gregory's community actives were serving as an elementary school "room mother" and Parent-Teacher Association member, and participating in the National Active and Retired Federal Employees association (NARFE) and Eastern Star. Mrs. Gregory was devoted to her late husband's care during his last illness from Alzheimer's disease, and supported fundraising for research into this condition. Having lived for the last several years near family in the Tidewater area, Mr. Gregory died at Gloucester House in Gloucester Courthouse. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings and by an infant daughter, as well as by Mr. Gregory. Mrs. Gregory's survivors include five daughters, four Grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, sons-in-law and grandsons-in-law, and additional relatives. The family thanks the staff of Gloucester House and the Riverside Walter Reed Hospice Program, and deeply appreciates the care Mrs. Gregory received in her last weeks in Gloucester House's palliative care wing. Mrs. Gregory loved plants; please send any floral offering to the Cottage at Gloucester House, 7613 Hospital Drive, Gloucester, Va. 23061, or consider making a contribution to the beneficial organization of your choice. Following arrangements by Andrews Funeral Home in Gloucester Courthouse, Mrs. Gregory's ashes will be placed at Arlington National Cemetery with those of Mr. Gregory, a World War II Army Air Force veteran, and their daughter Judy Kelsey Gregory.
