Luise (“Weezie”) McPherson Thomas

October 27, 1942 – July 14, 2013

Mother of Sara Thomas Bick.

Huge- Hearted lover and helper of all People and Cats and devoted Mom.

Mom was the most selfless, accepting, non-judgmental, soft hearted and compassionate person. She devoted her whole life to being the best, most present single parent ever, appreciating and helping all people and cats. Having joined Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church in 1981 she was a Deacon, Agape Group member and filled many other roles during her membership, not the least of which was the “Greet and welcome ‘em with a Hug Gal”. She was the “HUGGER” of Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church, doling out hugs to one and all and making folks feel genuinely welcomed, truly appreciated and accepted. And it’s been said a time or two that her smile could warm even the coldest of hearts! She participated in the Inter Faith Hospitality Network , cooking each Month for their dinners and worked every month at the St George Food Pantry. Through her life’s work as an employee of Hamilton County Job & Family Services, she served her clients tirelessly for 33 years. Because she knew no other way of life than to help others…When she retired she began her volunteer work at Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center where she served her clients faithfully for her remaining 15 years with us. During that 15 years she forged bonds and friendships with those she served regularly and earning their trust and respect along the way… no small feat. She connected with them just as she’d done with her previous clients and her compassion and genuinely caring spirit won their hearts. As a lifetime blood donor to Hoxworth Blood Center, she saved hundreds by her faithful donations. Even in passing Weezie continued to make a difference by donating her body to UC Medical School. As her friend Mary said and we all know to be the truth, “The world was a better place with Luise in it.”
