Louisa George was born on June 13, 1933 at Salisbury Park in Pune, Maharashtra, India as the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. P.M. Dawson. She grew up with her siblings Walton Dawson, Felix Dawson, Suganthi Samuel, Rosetta Naidoo, and the late, Ruby John, Delia Marjee and Hepsy Bathini.
After finishing high school at Hume McHenry High School in Pune, she completed her Nursing degree at Gifford Memorial Hospital in Nuzvid, and her Bachelor and Master of Science in Nursing at Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore -graduating with distinction. She met Dr. K.P. George while she was working as a nurse in Ranchi and they were married on April 10, 1963. They went on to have three children: Raj, Rosalind, and Lillian.
Louisa was an exemplary nurse, administrator, and professor. She had an illustrious career and has served in the following capacities:
Charge Nurse Shimla Sanitarium and Hospital, Shimla, India
OR Nurse Seventh-day Adventist Hospital, Ranchi, India
Charge Nurse Ruby Nelson Memorial Hospital, Jalandhar, India

Health Education Instructor Lowry Memorial College, Bangalore, India
Nursing Instructor, Program Director HMI School of Nursing, Washington D.C, USA

Among her colleagues, she was admired for her professionalism and compassion towards her patients. She was also an exceptional teacher -one who was well-respected and loved by her students. She strove to be excellent in whatever task she set her mind to do and encouraged her peers, students, and staff to do the same. In the capacities in which she served, she was not only recognized for her strong leadership, but also for her virtuous humility.
Louisa was a keen hobbyist with a creative mind. She enjoyed knitting and sewing and she took it upon herself to knit clothes for the newborn babies in the hospitals in which she worked in. She also loved to sew beautiful dresses for her daughters.
Louisa enjoyed cooking and baking as well. Anyone who visited her home would have been able to smell freshly baked bread or would have been treated to some homemade vanilla ice-cream and chocolate cake. She was a gifted cook and her recipes for her biryani, potato salad, and homemade noodles were always in demand. She enjoyed bringing beauty into people's lives, whether it was by creating elegant flower arrangements for weddings or by writing positive letters of encouragement to people around the world.
Despite all of her personal and professional accomplishments, Louisa's greatest joy lay in being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a rock to her husband. She was a selfless mother, sacrificing her time and energy to ensure the welfare of her children. She was the light of her home and took great care in order to make her family feel loved and appreciated. She had a special relationship with all her grandchildren and took great pride in each of their unique accomplishments.
Everyone who has met Louisa knows her to be kind, generous, and wise. She embodied the Golden Rule in Matthew 7:12 and treated everyone with courtesy and respect. She was a woman of faith and walked with the Lord till her death. She lived her life while upholding the principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and it was her mission to share the love of Jesus with everyone she encountered. She was ready to meet the Maker and was at peace.
She leaves to mourn with fond and loving memories, her children Raj and Noeleen, Rosalind and Abraham, and Lillian; her grandchildren Melissa, Nicole, Nithya, Beril, Nadiya, Aanchal, Ashish and Tahib; brothers and sisters, Walton Dawson, Felix Dawson, Suganthi Samuel, and Rosetta Naidoo; and many other family members and friends.
