She was born Nora Louise, on September 23, 1936 in Alexander N.D., to Willard and Thelma (Dexter) Hudson. She was raised in the Alexander area and attended school in Williston.
On July 2, 1955, Louise was united in marriage to Cecil Falcon at Ladd Air Force Base, Fairbanks, AK. They established their home in Williston where they raised their six children.
Cecil and Louise always opened their home with warm hospitality. She especially loved it when family and friends all gathered together. Everyone felt the event wasn't complete without Louise's potato salad or banana bars. Louise always made certain that all felt welcome in their home. She enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren playing sports and was an avid supporter. Mom loved listening to country music with Dad on Saturday evenings and grew to become a New York Yankee fan along with Dad. Louise worked for many years at the Good Samaritan Hospital and First National Bank. She loved gardening and every morning she and Dad would enjoy their morning cup of coffee and feeding the birds. She was especially fond of the squirrels....NOT!
She had a special place in her heart for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Louise is survived by her husband Cecil of Williston; her one daughter, Marietta (Bruce) Kemmet of Bismarck and their three children, Joshua (Sarah) Kemmet and their children Layla and Benjamin, Adam (Larissa) Kemmet and their son Jaxon, and Alissa (special friend Dan) Kemmet and her son Carson; her five sons: eldest son, Gary Falcon of Seattle, Wash.; second son, Bob (special friend Cheryl) Falcon of Bellingham, Wash., and his children, Jenny (Brandon) Welters and their son Mason, Jonathon (Sarita) Falcon and their daughter Olivia; third son, Rodney (Brenda) Falcon of Lynn Haven, Fla. and their two children, Tara (Steve) Lipinski and a great granddaughter due in a couple of weeks and Rodney, Jr.; fourth son, Kelly Falcon, Williston; and her youngest son, Kevin (Elizabeth) Falcon, Williston and their children Krystal (special friend Lukas) and Joren; three sisters, Rae (James) Fixen, Marion Moran, and Faye (Jim) Snyder; and a brother, Gary (Gerri) Hudson all of Williston; numerous nephews and nieces; as well as, the special friends in her life, Gary and Bev Quale of Williston, and Joy Breesnee and Joanne Arsenault, both of Spokane. The special friends in mom’s life are too numerous to mention and we are grateful for their presence in her life.

Mom was met in heaven by her best friend, Nyla Olson, whom she lost a short time ago, where they are surely enjoying a great game of pinochle.
