Louise M. Schreiter
1936 ∼ 2021
Louise M. Schreiter, 84, of West Falmouth, died peacefully surrounded by her family on January 4, 2021 at McCarthy Care Center in Sandwich.
Louise was born in Manhattan, New York and raised at the Wartburg Orphan’s Farm School along with her siblings. She and her husband of 61 years, Robert, moved from Ridgewood, New Jersey to Cape Cod to raise their family. Louise went back to school to become a licensed CNA and spent many years caring for the residents of the Falmouth Nursing Home.
Louise was a kind and generous person who thought of others before herself. She enjoyed volunteering at Christ Lutheran Church where she was a longtime member. Some of her favorite pastimes included taking care of her many flower gardens, feeding the birds, reading and painting. Most of all, Louise loved caring for her family, especially her cherished granddaughter. We will miss her family meals, her sense of humor, her sage advice and her comforting hugs.
Louise is survived by her husband Robert W. Schreiter, her two daughters, Leslie Walters and husband Raymond of Centerville; Susan DeWitt and husband Ted of Bourne; and her beloved granddaughter Rayna.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation - McCarthy Care Center, PO Box 370, Hyannis, MA 02601.
The family will hold a memorial service at a later date.
