She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in Business Administration. She was awarded the Bast Award as the most outstanding student in the School of Business. Ben and Louann traveled to rodeos where Ben Rode bulls, barebacks, and did steer wrestling. Later, they continued taking the children to rodeos. Both girls were successful barrel racers. They also took Brett to wrestling matches where he became an outstanding competitor. Louann traveled extensively during the 70s and 80s. She went to all the Western European countries: England, Ireland, Greece, Egypt, and on an archeological dig in Israel. She purchased her first Irish Wolfhound in 1976 and became very active in showing and breeding, finishing over 50 champions from her Trampas Kennel. Louann was a lover of all animals and implores those she leaves behind to respect all living beings. We, as the dominant and most cruel species are charged with their well-being. Services will be 2:00 pm on Friday, October 26, 2007, at Guardian Funeral Home North Chapel. Private family interment at Harmony Cemetery.
