During their loving 60 year marriage they had five children; LeAnn Redford (JAC), Michael Allred, Sherrie Rice (Robert-deceased), Kristine Allred Gabel (deceased), Chad Allred, 13 grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Lou was extremely talented, intelligent, and loving. She was a faithful member of the LDS church in which she honorably served in numerous callings.
