Louise Camosy passed away on Saturday, January 18th at the age of 98.

Born Louise Ferraro, in Kenosha, on November 24, 1921, she was the daughter of Mary and Eugene Ferraro, also lifelong residents of Kenosha after emigrating from Calabria, Italy.

Louise graduated from Kenosha High School and worked at Snap-On Tools for several years after graduation.

She married Ray Camosy on June 7, 1947 and they celebrated 71 wonderful years together before he died early last year.

Louise was well known for her sharp sense of humor, her endless curiosity about human nature, and her excellent cooking.

She loved to entertain her friends and family and she was blessed with artistic talents that she expressed in the design of her homes, as well as painting and sewing. Her elegant sense of style was a constant throughout her life.

Most of all she will be remembered as a loving wife and mother, and a very wise nana. She laughed easily, and loved deeply.

She is survived by her five children: Art Camosy (Diane Wilkensen), Raymond Camosy (Mary Ann Camosy), Laurie Pearsall (Morgan Pearsall) Jeannie Camosy (David Himebrook) and John Camosy (Debbie Camosy), her brother Joe Ferraro (Carol Ferraro), her sister-in-law Delores Ferraro of Kenosha, and her sister-in-law Yolanda Camosy of Clearwater, Florida as well as her 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

Louise was also lovingly cared for since Ray’s passing by her niece, Rita Chiapetta and nephew, Art Maurer. Rita was her daily caregiver, her protector, her friend and her partner in crime.

The family would like to thank The Addison of Pleasant Prairie for their daily and kind attention to her needs and to Hospice House of Pleasant Prairie for their guidance.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, January 21st, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church at 11:00 a.m. Visitation will be at the church on Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Mass. Entombment will be follow at All Saints Cemetery immediately following. Memorials can be made to Hospice Alliance.

I know this is a terrible loss for all of you. Louise was absolutely one of my favorite people. Everything about her was amazing. From the time I was a little girl my mom talked about Louise, her childhood neighbor and friend. As we grew up we began to understand the deep friendship between our parents. I took many a shopping trip to Chicago with your mom and mine...nothing quite like seeing those two hit the stores. I learned how to shop from the two of them. But one of my favorite memories was about 14 or 15 years ago. Your mom and my mom took a trip with me to our vacation home in Hilton Head. We shopped, we dined, we visited many of my friends here and generally had a "girl friend's " trip. I felt honored to be in their "club". I am in Hilton Head for the winter so will not be able to share my sorrow and deep affection for your mom in person. I know you have many happy memories of life with your mom. May they bring you joy and comfort forever. You all are in in my thoughts and prayers.

My most sincere condolences to the family of Louise Camosy. Louise was one of my mother's best friends from grade school on, until my mother, Carmella (Andreoli) Marino's, passing in September, 2018. Louise and Ray took many trips together with my parents here in the US and Europe, over the years. Now all four of them has passed on, and I can only imagine the fun they are having reminiscing, in Heaven. May God watch over all four of them now, and throughout eternity.
