Flowers & Gifts
The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof; the world and thay that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord or who shall stand in the holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

Louise Harris Huston was born August 17, 1939 in Lugoff, SC. She was one of eight children from the union of the late Eddie and Sweetie Harris. She peacefully made her heavenly transition from this life on July 14, 2018 at 1:17 p.m. at Providence Hospital with her children by her side.
She was formally educated in the Kershaw County Public Schools and she was gainfully employed as a caregiver for over 41 years before retiring in 2010.
On July 10, 1956, Louise married the late Willie Williams. From this union, they were blessed with eight children.
On May 13, 1976, Louise married the late Leroy Huston who was “the love of her life,” her long-time partner, and friend.
Louise began her Christian journey at an early age at Good Aim Baptist Church in Elgin, SC where she was baptized and served faithfully. When she moved to Columbia, SC years later, she found her place at Gunter’s Chapel Baptist Church. At Gunter’s Chapel, she was an active member who sat in the same seat every Sunday. She remained a faithful worshipper until her passing.
Louise was affectionately known to her children and many friends as “Honey and Sunshine.” She chose to spend her life serving God through her church, lending a helping hand to friends, strangers and her neighbors. She had a giving spirit and would often give food, clothing and furniture to those in need. She provided transportation to seniors who needed a ride to the store, the doctor and to church. She was a great inspiration to her family, her church, her community and to everyone she knew. Louise had a passion for four things other than her grandchildren – her love of Cow figurines, her baby doll collection, Gunter’s Chapel Male Chorus, and her Clemson Tigers. (You had better not come in her house with no Gamecock anything.)
She leaves to cherish her memories her loving companion, James H. Brown; four sons, Clarence (Barbara) Williams, Herbert (Kristin) Williams, Garfield (Louella) Williams, and Rowden (Patricia) Williams; three daughters, Ivornetta Davis, Lorraine (Lionel) Butler and Vick McLaughlin; two sisters-in-law, Elease Hampton and Julia Houston; a devoted grandson, Reverend WJ Williams; godson, Reverend Tommy Brown; a dear friend, Bruce A. Trezevant; special friend, Ms. Ruby Brown; a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephew and other relatives and friends.
Louise was preceded in death by one son, Curtis Williams; grandchildren, Devin, Jasmine, Shamya and Kendrick; one son-in-law, Ronald Davis; one daughter-in-law, Karen Williams; six brothers, Lewis, Frank, JC, Curtis, Cleveland and Willie James; and one sister, Annie Mae.
