Louise Carolyn Bradley, 61, of Henderson County, NC went home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ, after a brief illness early Wednesday morning, March 18, 2020 at Pardee Hospital, in Hendersonville, NC.
Mrs. Bradley was born in Amherst, OH on Tuesday, May 13, 1958 to the late Luther C. and Mary A. (Knauer) Patterson.
On May 12, 1984, as the former Louise Carolyn Patterson she married her loving husband of 29 years, Mr. William A. “Alvin” Bradley who died on July 7, 2013. After moving to Hendersonville in 1973, she graduated from East Henderson High School in 1976. She was a devout Catholic and was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Hendersonville. She had a loving and giving heart and welcomed everyone into her home with open arms. She enjoyed cooking and baking and if she wasn’t cooking you would usually catch her watching the food network. She loved spending time with her family and enjoyed many trips to the Great Smokes or Pisgah National Forest to have a family picnic and to watch for deer.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory her three children, Katherine L. “Katie” Bradley, Jacob D. Bradley and his wife Alexis, and Janie M. Bradley all of Hendersonville, NC. She is also survived by her loving grandson, Isaac B. Cabrera; a brother Paul E. Patterson and his wife, Debi of New London, OH; a sister, Catherine E. “Cathi” Bell and her husband, Tim of Greer, SC. In addition to her husband and parents she is preceded in death by her beloved brother, Larry Patterson who died on April 10, 2011.
A gathering to celebrate Mrs. Bradley’s life will be announced at a later date.
Memorial contributions may be offered on behalf of Mrs. Bradley to the Council on Aging for Henderson County, 105 King Creek Boulevard, Hendersonville, NC 28792 or to the charity of the donor’s choice.
God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you, and whispered “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly. We could not make you stay. A Golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Louise will be forever missed by her loving and devoted family and many dear friends.
