Louella Louise Baugh graduated to heaven on March 9, 2010, from her son's home in Nampa, after a short battle with cancer. She recently celebrated her 75th birthday with all her children by her side.
Louella was born Jan. 17, 1935, in Minneapolis, Kans., to Lawrence and Daisy Shea.
She married Morris Harold (Bill) Baugh in 1954 and grew their family while traveling extensively during his service in the United States Air Force.
They retired in Mountain Home in 1970.
Louella selflessly dedicated her life to taking care of others and generously gave beyond her means.
She was an avid reader and had a sarcastic wit that, along with her love of Christ, saw her through much heartache.
Her favorite role in life was that of mother and grandmother, where she was a loving and forgiving teacher.
Louella is survived by her sons, Randy Baugh of Richfield, Kevin Baugh of Kimberly, Jim Baugh and his wife, Ronette, of Mountain Home, Bill Baugh and his wife, Cheryl, of Nampa, a daughter, Erin Sellers and her husband, Rob, of Boise, grandchildren Jamie, Brienne, Hailey, Sarah, Samantha, Bobby, Cierra, Madeline and Hannah, great grandchildren Abbie, Ryan, Trey, Kyrah, Bradynn, Brodee and Haven, a sister, Darlene Fischer, and a brother, Mike Shea.
Louella was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Daisy Shea, her brother, Lawrence (Buck) Shea, her husband, Morris Harold (Bill) Baugh, three daughters, Tina, Cathy and Larri Ann, a son, Patrick, and a granddaughter, Jessica.
On behalf of Louella, her family expresses sincere gratitude to her doctors and nurses at Saint Alphonsus and Hearts for Hospice. To Elmore Medical Center, Jerry Rost, Christian Brown, Pastor Bob Caldwell, thank you for your help and understanding.
