Sadly, on September 25, 2021, angels called home a beautiful soul, who loved life beyond words.

Lou anne leaves behind her broken hearted husband, Larry Maine, of 29 years and her precious daughter and best friend, Nicole Maine, as well as beloved children Carrie (Carlo) Caputo and Sean (Karrie) Maine.

Lou will also be greatly missed by many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and many special cousins.

Lou anne loved a simple life and never wanted more. She loved her yard, her plants, decorating for each and every holiday and her love of music was beyond words (mostly country). Her heart was larger than life, just like her laugh. She loved and welcomed God into her life and heart. Lou anne will by missed forever and always.
