~ God has spoken…Let the church say, “AMEN!” ~
Louise Beverly Byrd-Logan was born November 02, 1946, to Willie and Minerva Byrd - in Philadelphia, PA. There, she was raised with her siblings and completed her formal education. In 1964, she graduated from Simon Gratz High School. Upon graduating from High School, she worked in the nursing field and years later enrolled into a Trade School and earned a Medical Assistant Certification. During these years, she met and married Henry Sherman Logan. From this union, four children were born – Jerome, Kelly, David and Kim. In addition, she was gifted a bonus daughter, Mamie.
As a young child, Louise, affectionately known as, Loukey accepted Jesus Christ and was Baptized in her faith. As a young Christian, she attended Friendly Baptist Church, in Philadelphia, under the leadership of Rev. J.N. Lavender. As time would progress, Louise and her family relocated to Willingboro, NJ. And, in 1988, took residence in Houston, TX. In 1991, she returned to New Jersey and ultimately became a member of Christ Community Evangelistic Church, where Rev. John Dingle, Sr. was her Pastor. Louise enjoyed serving on the Usher Board and allowing her light to shine through the gift of Hospitality.
Her gift to care for others extended into her career. As a Medical professional, Loukey worked at Houston Methodist and Temple Hospitals. Upon her retirement, she was employed by the Masonic Nursing Home of New Jersey, where she worked as a Physical Therapy Assistant. With each position, Louise became known for her strong and relentless work ethic. She proudly earned a number of Quality Service Awards and Accommodations.
To know Louise was to LOVE HER!!! She had a special knack for having a quiet presence, with a loud undertone. She would often express love for her family and friends through her Arts and Crafts creations. Many were blessed to be recipients of her crocheted afghans and handmade ceramics. While her creations tugged at your heart, her famous Soup and Bologna & Cheese warmed it. She never professed to be a great cook, but you would never leave her house hungry. And, her insatiable sweet tooth always guaranteed that an ample supply of Jelly Beans, Orange Slices and Cake was nearby. Throughout Loukey’s journeys, her LOVE for her family was always prevalent. She enjoyed spending time at special gatherings, shopping, listening to the Oldies and Gospel music and hearing stories about her grandchildren. Her family would make her face light up and afterwhile you would hear her say, “Y’all getting on my NERVES!!!” All in all, she remained committed to leaving a legacy of Unity and Love. This became even more apparent, seeing how her children cared for her through her many health challenges. It is comforting to know that her mantle of Strength and Faith will remain eternally.
