Louise C. Bellatti

December 13, 1927 — December 3, 2022

Lena Louise Crosnoe Bellatti passed peacefully on December 3, 2022 with her family by her side. She was just shy of her 95th birthday. Louise was preceded in death by her husband James (Jim) Bellatti. They had been married 68 years at the time of his death in 2016. Louise was the eldest daughter of the late Smoot McCrae and Lena Myrtle (Moser) Crosnoe. She was born in the village of Hunter in the township of Noble in Garfield County, Oklahoma on December 13, 1927. The Crosnoe family later moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma where Louise graduated from Stillwater High School in 1945. She graduated from Oklahoma A&M in May of 1949 with a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics Education. While at Oklahoma A&M, Louise was a member and officer in Zeta Tau Alpha sorority, member of Omicron Nu Home Economics Honor society, YWCA and Phi Kappa Phi honor society. Louise’s family moved to the Crosnoe family farm in Harmon County in 1946. The farm earned a Centennial Farm Award in 1997.

Louise maintained a lifelong commitment as a Zeta by serving the local alumna chapter in many leadership roles and the now Oklahoma State University collegiate chapter in all advisor roles and House Corporation amongst others. She received the White Violet recognition as a 75-year member in 2021.

Louise volunteered for 20 plus years at the Stillwater Hospital/Medical Center in many capacities. Her claim to fame there came about in the snack bar where she made millions of egg salad sandwiches. She was an active member and servant in the First Presbyterian Church (USA) of Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Louise and her sister Betsy worked for a number of years to complete a Crosnoe family genealogy which led Louise to do the same for the Bellatti family. Louise was an active member and officer at local and state levels of the Daughters’ of the American Revolution, PEO, Jamestown Society, National Society of the Court of Honor, Magna Carta Dames and the National Society of Colonial Dames. When her four children were younger, she was a Cub Scout, Camp Fire Girls and Girl Scouts leader for many troops. The children wish to express their gratitude for ALL that Mom did for us. We also want to share just a couple of personal “thank you’s.”

Rick: The support for Scouts, band, football and everything that he loved to do.

Jane and Becky: Her willingness to spend hours and days taking us to the barn and horse shows in the heat and cold, rain, snow and wind. She had many layers of Oklahoma dirt on her face that she would laughingly wipe off at the end of the day.

Susie: Sharing the latter years of her life in many one-on-one times joining in church services, driving around Stillwater to reminisce about the people and places Louise loved, oohing and aahing over Christmas lights and watching the Pokes play whatever sport was in season.

Jim was the love of her life. In an early Valentine’s card, Louise told Dad that he was the only one she would ever love. That turned out to be the case. Louise and Jim spent many years traveling the world and visiting family, spending time in Estes Park, Colorado at their family cabin and the YMCA of the Rockies, enjoying their Stillwater community and all of its offerings. They were always ready with plenty of food and hospitality for any and all.

Louise was preceded in death by her son Charles Richard (Rick) Bellatti. Louise is survived by her sister Elizabeth (Betsy) Willson of Fort Collins, Colorado; Rick’s wife Pam and their sons Joey (Tara), Ryan and Brad; Daughters Jane Armstrong (preceded by husband Dave Armstrong) and their children Cayley Mosca (Nick) and Quade Armstrong (Erin); Susie Glasscock (preceded by husband Kirby and son Kirby James) and their children Taylor, Kelly Caselman (Craig) and Kacey Luster (Greg); Becky Bittle and husband Bob, and their children Josh (Tiffanie), Elspeth and Jamie (Abbie) and eleven great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

The family extends special thanks to our extended family, First Presbyterian Church of Stillwater and many friends for their support. We also thank Annette Nickels and her family for their devotion to and special attention given to Mom, and the staff at Golden Oaks Assisted Living Village and Karman Legacy Hospice for such excellent care of Mom.
