LOUISE LEE CALLAHAN, died Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at her residence in Charleston MO, just a couple of weeks before her 95th birthday.

The Callahans raised many fine foals, included Hillgrove's Go Boy, a WC two year old, on their family farm in the boot heel of Missouri.

Surviving are two daughters and sons-in-law, Sis and Grady Osborn(Cornersville TN) and Nancy and Oliver Kirkpatrick (Charleston MO); four grandchildren Kathy and Steve (Quatina) Wolaver, Wendell (Kristi) Kirkpatrick, Kay (Doug) Glastetter; and five great-grandchildren.
