July 21, 1954 - March 7, 2022
Louise Stephanie Surwilo Wilson, 67, passed away on Monday, March 7, 2022 at her home in Stamford, CT. Louise was born at Stamford Hospital on July 21, 1954. She attended Stamford public schools and graduated Rippowam High School in 1972, where she was one of the first white students to enroll in an African History course. She graduated Rhode Island College with a B.A. in Managerial Economics. Louise was most proud of being a loving mother to three amazing children: Amanda Tellier, Brock Tellier, and Peter Wilson. She was also the proud “foster” mother to Wesmore Maitland. Louise never feared death because she knew her hopes, dreams, values, morals, and ethics would live on in her beloved children and they would continue her legacy to give more than you take and to leave this world a better place than it was when you entered it. With that mindset, Louise strove to spend her life changing the planet one child at a time. Her children knew there was nothing, absolutely nothing, that she would not do for them. It was her fervent hope that this would give each of them a sense of security and allow them to spread their wings in ways that she never did. The world is your oyster, go out and conquer it – this was her message to the children she loved so dearly. Louise’s accomplishments include starting a school in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: Deliverance Teaching Center. Louise was also President and Founder of Help Keep Hope Alive!, a non- profit organization that she started in 2001 to aid her Ethiopian school. In her later years, Louise was a woman who epitomized grace despite many obstacles. It is that grace as well as her generous and compassionate heart that will most be remembered by the loved ones she leaves behind.
