Louise was born September 11, 1928, in Peru to George and Sophia (Skowronek) Zebron. She married Edward Sigmund Sr. on January 31, 1948, in St. Valentine Church, Peru.
Louise worked at Westclox for several years and then she was a homemaker. She cherished her family, enjoyed puzzles, and taught everyone to play cards, especially rummy. She was the best baker, chef, playmate, and babysitter (everyone wanted a sick day on her couch). Louise took pride in attending sporting events for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and often practiced with them in the yard.
She was a member of St. Valentine Church.
