Louise Ethel Pifer, age 93, passed away Friday, November 25, 2016 at Edinboro Manor. Born April 14, 1923, she was a daughter of Charles and Maud King of Camp Mystic, LeBoeuf Township.

Louise was raised on a family farm with 8 wonderful siblings– five sisters, Mildred Cross of Waterford, Ruth Hasbrouck of Corry, Charlotte Fox of Waterford, Irene Mitchell Lewis of Waterford, and Marion Petrick of Camp Mystic; and three brothers, Ray King of Venango, Joe King and Harold King, both of Camp Mystic. Irene Lewis is the only surviving sibling.

Louise drove truck in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1945. She farmed, drove school bus for many years for LeBoeuf Bus Lines, upholstered furniture, made clothing, and was one of the best cooks in the state. She loved to laugh, fish, golf, and play cards. Her sense of humor was contagious.

In addition to her brothers and sisters, Louise was preceded in death by her husbands, Howard Pifer and David Pifer.

Surviving family members include her son, Bill Pifer of Rockdale Township, Crawford County; three step-sons, Jay Pifer of Hickory Flatts, GA, David Pifer of Melbourne, FL, and Dennis Pifer of Seneca, SC; many step-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She will be missed by all who knew her.
