Louise Partin Worthing

November 17, 1931 ‒ October 16, 2013

Delaware, Ohio

Louise Partin Worthing, age 81 of Delaware passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at Grant Hospital.

Born in Chenoa, Ky, on November 15, 1931 to the late James Patrick and Lilly Mae (Owens) Partin, she came to Delaware from Kentucky in 1953. She married her beloved husband Cloyse in 1954 and they have lived on Troy Rd. ever since. She worked as a school cook, a custodian for a number of factories, a seamstress in a bridal shop, and at a nursery. Then at the age of 63 she found her calling and a work that she loved as a hospice aid for Grady Home Care, she finally retired in 2008 at the age of 77.

She was an active member of the Delaware Church of Christ in Christian Union, and throughout her life she was always involved in her church. She reared her children in a safe and strong Christian home.

Before being stricken by Alzheimer’s disease she was an avid volunteer, golfer, seamstress, gardener, canner, traveler, and crafter. A life-long learner, she achieved her GED in 1988. If she didn’t know how to do something, she found a book and taught herself. Her life is a true American success story. She wisely used all of the gifts she had been given and made the world better than she found it.

Those left to cherish Louise’s memory include her husband of 59 years, Cloyse Goodwin Worthing; daughters, Catherine Worthing of Moyock, NC, and Cyndi (David) Martin of Mt. Orab, OH; twin sister, Lucille Nibert of Delaware; brother Floyd Partin of Columbus, and sister, Ann Day of Harriman, TN; grandsons Joshua (Julie) Browning and Dustin (Bethany) Harbottle of Mt. Orab; six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents she was also preceded in death by sisters, Marlie Powell, Lorena Peace, Nora Standridge; brothers, James, Eugene and Alva Partin ; and half-sister Grace Partin Lial, and three beloved Australian Shepherds Mia, Vicky, and Felix.

Friends may call 2-4 on Saturday at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 1510 W. William St. at Valleyside Dr., Delaware where services will follow at 4:00 p.m., Pastor Bill Benner.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Council for Older Adults, 800 Cheshire Rd., Delaware, Ohio 43015. The family would like to thank them very much for the help they gave to Louise and to the other seniors in Delaware.
