Louise R. (Weiscopf) Johnson

Louise R. (Weiscopf) Johnson, 94, of Heartbreak Road, Ipswich, wife of  the late Hubert A. Johnson, died peacefully in her home Monday February 8, 2010 following her failing health.

Born in Brighton April 29, 1915, daughter of the late Edwin L. and Minnie (Harris) Weiscopf, she was raised in Brookline, Roslindale and West Roxbury. She graduated from the Girls Latin High School after an accelerated three year program, and from Simmons College with the Class of 1936. For more than thirty two years she was employed as a library consultant with the New England News, the Boston subsidiary of the American News Company and since 1968 was employed with the Eastern Book Company of Portland, Maine.

In years past she was an avid tennis player and skier. In addition of her love of books and literature she enjoyed home gardening and her daily walks with her dog Sarah and her close friends.

She was a member of the Ipswich Garden Club, Town and Country Garden Club, Cape Ann Literary Guild, Ipswich Historical Society and served for many years as the Friends of the Ipswich Public Library Liason to the Trustees. She enthusiastically volunteered her time conducting tours at the Cranes Castle, introducing tourists to Ipswich at the Visitors Center, and with children at the Winthrop School.

She will be remembered fondly by her many, many friends for her energy and love of life.
