At her brother’s urging, she moved to Charleston during World War II where he was stationed and she never left. In 1946, she met the love of her life, Salvador (Sally) Sottile, on the beach at the Isle of Palms. They married in 1947. They were among the first full-time residents on the Isle of Palms.
Over the years, Sally’s job allowed the couple to take many vacations, traveling to the four corners of the world. Louise so loved each and every trip.
In addition to raising her children, in the 1960’s she became a career businesswoman who was ahead of her time. After her children were old enough, she joined the business world. Among other positions that Louise held, she served as the USPS Postmaster for the Isle of Palms for over 25 years, retiring in 1986. She was a past president of the South Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Postmasters. Louise had a very sharp mind.

Sottile (Terri); five grandchildren; Michael Momeier, David Momeier, Leah Lewin (Alex), Nicholas S. Sottile and Stephen R. Sottile, and many nieces and nephews.
