Louise Shadduck was many things in her 92 years, descended from Coeur d'Alene pioneers, she was a North Idaho icon. When she was named Idaho's State Secretary of the Department of Commerce in 1958, no other woman in the country had held that position. Louise authored books on Idaho history and received accolades and honors throughout a career that spanned politics and news reporting. She made a wonderful life in North Idaho and she made our lives richer for having known her.
RIP Louise ... 1915-2008
I've taken photographs of many beautiful things in my time, including this photo of Louise in Oct. 2007.
