Gwendolyn Louise Hinkebein Tolle, 80 years old, passed away on January 18, 2021 after a short illness at Lee’s Summit Hospital.
Louise was born on October 13, 1940 in Ozark County, Missouri to Laurence and Martha Hinkebein. She was an only child.
She married Donald W. Tolle January 18,1958 and had four children. Louise was a homemaker most of her life and would say her children were her lifeblood. She loved working with people as a food sample presenter and later as a cashier in grocery or retail establishments that allowed her to have lots of social interaction. Her legacy of love will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone she interacted with.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents and husband, Don. She leaves behind her four children Donnie Tolle , his wife Jeanne; Christine Flowers, her husband Steve; Gail Walton, her husband Marvin; and Larry Tolle and his wife Keli; 10 grandchildren, their spouses and 11 great-grandchildren – although she was truly a grandma to most who knew her.
