Louise Catharina Schut Dicou

October 9, 1938 — January 8, 2024


Louise Catharina Schut Dicou Age 85, died on Jan. 8, 2024, in Lindon, Utah.

She was born on Oct. 9, 1938, in Apeldoorn, Netherlands to Jan and Anna (Stellinga) Schut. Louise immigrated to the United States with her parents and two younger siblings, Jan and Diana, where they settled in Rupert, Idaho.

She married Dirk Gysbert Dicou on Nov. 12, 1959, in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Louise was an incredible homemaker, friend, sister, aunt, wife, mother, and grandmother. Her passions included keeping her hands busy with knitting, crocheting, needleworking, quilting, and sewing. Louise also enjoyed floral arranging and gardening. She enjoyed baking and sharing her talent with friends, family, and neighbors: cookies, rolls, and bread as well as raisin rings at Christmas.

She kept physically active by going on walks and bicycling. There were often Skittles in a bowl for snacking, her favorite candy. Louise was awarded numerous ribbons at the county and state fair for her accomplishments, often winning first place or grand prize for the handicraft items she submitted.

Immigrating from the Netherlands at nine years old, she would go to school during the day, where she learned English. In the evening, she would then teach her parents the English she had learned to them. Graduating high school and receiving her U.S. Citizenship in 1958 were always meaningful events. Louise was proud to be an American but also loved her Dutch heritage.

Louise raised eight children with love and encouraged them in their endeavors by actively supporting her family through attending band and choir concerts, swim meets, theater performances, and sporting events. She also stepped up as a 4-H leader, volunteered for the PTA, and collected soup labels.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served diligently in many callings throughout the years including; Relief Society, Primary, and Young Women’s. She loved attending the temple and providing compassionate service to neighbors and ward members.

Louise also had a hidden talent- if given three tennis balls, she would entertain us by juggling them in the air or against a wall. She always had a tissue or two on her, a treat in a bag or a pocket. Louise loved to smile and had a song in her heart that often came out as she went about her daily life humming, singing, or dancing along.

She is survived by her loving spouse Dirk Dicou, her children: Sandra Yetter, Troy Dicou, Caryn Tucker, Shane Dicou, Denise Haugen, Marlo Gifford, and Lisa Mower. Along with her siblings: Jan Schut, Diana Wall, Chris Schut, Fred Schut, and Theo Schut.

She is preceded in death by her parents Jan and Anna Schut, her brother Robert Schut, her daughter Bonnie Terry, and grandson Max David Terry.
