Louise was born July 16, 1938, in Glencoe, the daughter of Paul and Louise (Penas) Popelka. She was baptized as an infant at St. George Catholic Church in Glencoe.

Louise and Gilbert Artmann were joined in holy marriage June 21, 1958, at St. George Catholic Church. God blessed their marriage with three sons: Kurt, Kevin, and Keith.

Louise was formerly employed for 45 years at Poly Foam Inc. in Lester Prairie.

She was a faithful member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Winsted, and often picked up close friends for Saturday night Mass.

Louise enjoyed going to the casino with friends, horse races at Canterbury, yearly Laughlin trips with friends, watching and betting on Vikings games, reading, and yard work.

After retirement, some of her days were filled with watching two of her great-grandchildren: Bentley and Ella.

Louise was the most selfless soul; she never complained, had a big heart, and a great sense of humor. She cherished the time spent with her family; especially her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Louise was loved by many.

She is survived by her sons: Kevin Artmann of New Germany, and Keith (Heidi) Artmann of Young America; grandchildren Ashley (Ryan) Maass, Josh (Leah) Artmann, and Andrew Artmann; great-grandchildren Brody, Bentley and Ella; and Lane, Davis and Miles; a sister, Dorothy Hanson of Mound; and many other relatives and friends.

Louise was preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert H. Artmann; her son, Kurt Artmann; her parents; and siblings Jerome and Paul Popelka, Elaine Frauendienst, and Rachel Evans.
