Louise “Wesie” Laub.
We teach our students that hard work and service to others are endeavors that help define a person’s character. The generous Mrs. Louise “Wesie” Laub was such an individual, and Boys Republic was the fortunate beneficiary of her passionate voluntarism. She passed away peacefully on July 15, 2014.
Wesie served as a volunteer in Boys Republic’s Pasadena Auxiliary for 44 years, a period during which she twice assumed the role of Auxiliary president and member of Boys Republic’s Board of Directors. She gave dedicatedly of her time, spending untold hours working in the Auxiliary’s thrift shop. She provided frequent substantial financial support, as well; donor records show 233 separate gifts.
Former Boys Republic executive director, Max Scott said, “I am so very grateful to have known Wesie, and to have observed her self sacrifice for the students at Boys and Girls Republic. She was such a wonderful example to everyone.”
