In 1944, Louise married Basil L. Morlan. Louise spent a short time teaching while she was young. After Louise and Basil had their son, Tony, she became a stay-at-home mom in Macon, Mo. After the family moved to Kirksville, Mo in 1966 she started “Spinning Wheel Antiques.” Basil would refinish the antique furniture and other items while Louise would buy and sell.

Louise and Basil moved to Kansas City, MO to be near their son and his family. There she continued buying and selling antiques and did appraisals for others. She became known in the antique industry and had buyers from all over come to Missouri to work with her.
