March 20, 1919 — Oct. 30, 2012

After a long illness, Louise R. Caswell passed away peacefully at home on Oct. 30, 2012. Born March 20, 1919, in Nebraska City, Neb., to German immigrants Karl and Hulda Rausch, she was the youngest of 14. She moved to Placerville during World War II, working at the Ration Board where she met her husband, John M. (Jack) Caswell. They married in 1946.

Besides being a fine homemaker, Louise was a partner with Jack in all his endeavors: farming, politics and business. For decades Louise and Jack sold cherries from the family orchards. Many may affectionately remember her as Placerville’s “Cherry Lady.” She won blue ribbons at the county fair for her canned and baked goods. Her angel food cake was often a requested party cake. She supported her children in their school and social activities. She also volunteered with the Marshall Hospital Auxiliary, the Federated Church and the Girl Scout Council.

She is survived by her daughters, Kathy Mack (Ken) and Joyce Caswell (Finn Brady); son, John M. Caswell Jr.; grandson, Jay Blattner (Clarisa); great-grandson, Zane; and many nieces and nephews.

Louise will be buried with Jack at Westwood Hills Cemetery. At her request, there will be no services. Her family wants to thank Snowline Hospice for their sympathetic care of our mother in her final days. Memorial contributions may be made to Snowline Hospice, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619, or online at snowlinehospice.org.

As one friend said, “What you saw was what you got” with Louise.
