Memorials to The Good Samaritan Home in Mt. Lake. They that has taken such good care of our family members over the years.

Louise Ellen Quiring was born on December 29, 1929, to Karl Karschnik and Lucille (Olson) Karschnik in Jackson County, MN. She graduated from Mountain Lake High School and Mankato Business College.

She later met Donald Henry Quiring and they were married on November 25, 1948. They were together for 55 wonderful years and enjoyed life in Arizona avoiding the MN winters and made many friends there. In 1956 the family moved from the farm in Mountain Lake to Blue Earth, MN and later to Owatonna and Prior Lake before they later settled in Mountain Lake in order to better deal with Donald’s Parkinsons. They were living in their home for a few years before Donald went into the nursing home while Louise still lived in their home. Donald passed way in 2004. Soon after, Louise sold the Mountain Lake home and has lived in a series of assisting living and care facilities in Windom and finally in Mountain Lake. With the losses she has had, her spirit and faith in God never wavered. She never got too excited to depressed about very many things. She was a great example of a Godly wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. THANK YOU MOM, GRANDMA, AND GREAT GRANDMOTHER!

We were very grateful to those who served in taking care of her, especially those who cared for her at the Good Sam in Mountain Lake. Donald had previously spent 5 years at Good Sam. She is survived by her children – Randy (Paulettte) Quiring, Todd (Kathi) Quiring, a daughter-in-law – Sarah Quiring; 6 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband; sons – Dana and Clark Quiring; daughter-in-law – Melodie Quiring; grandchildren – Ben Quiring and Katie Donaldson; and sister and brother-in-law – Norma and Arnold Quiring.
