"A wonderful mother, grandmother, and wife who spent her entire life dedicated to her children, she loved, and was loved, by countless youth she influenced and encouraged through church, school, athletic activities, and friendship. Louise lived in Beckley almost her entire life, excluding a short stay in California. She was a waitress for many years at The Char, where she cared for, loved and considered family the many people she came to know throughout her career. "She was born Jane Louise Rufus on March 7, 1927, at Caloric, W.Va., to James Anthony and Rose Etta Rose Rufus. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Wayne A. Sisk Sr., her second husband, Basil B. Kester, her brothers Carl and Guy Rufus, and her sister Shirley Rufus Hill. "Those left to cherish her memory include her daughters Sharon Branson (Terry) of Austin, Texas, and Delcie Young of Beckley, W.Va., and her son Roy Sisk (Jill) of Danese, W.Va.; grandchildren Melissa Branson Bailey (Clayton) of Rockwall, Texas, Laura Branson Romero (Richie) of Austin, Texas, Amelia Louise Young of Addison, Texas, and Sara R.

"The many acquaintances she made during her lifetime will surely join in her remembrance and mourn the loss of a “one-of-a-kind” individual of outstanding character and unparalleled generosity.
