Obituary for Louise Leach Buchan

Louise Leach Martin Buchan went peacefully home to be with the Lord on July 2nd. She is now able to rejoin her late husband, Lee S. Buchan, Sr. and her late son, Lee “Sam” S. Buchan, Jr. in their heavenly home.

Louise is the daughter of the late George and Louise Leach Martin and was born on High Street in Aberdeen. A native of Aberdeen, she was proud to call this town home and lived the vast majority of her life in the same block where she was born. She lived a full and robust 96 years and did not leave behind any regrets. During her life she was a loving daughter and supportive mother, a generous and warm grandmother, and a proud great-grandmother. She attended the former National Park College in Washington, D.C., and transferred to Belmont College in Nashville, TN. She worked at the bank in Pinehurst during World War II and delivered the weekly payroll to Camp McCall in cash, valued at over $1 million, a testament to her gumption. She was a successful realtor and made friends with those she sold houses to. Mrs. Buchan was a Girl Scout, a member of the John Blue Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Walter Hines Page and Cardinal Book Clubs, the Aberdeen Home and Garden Club, and was a charter member of the Page Memorial United Methodist Church’s Lenten Luncheon Committee and co-chair for many years. She was a soothing and steady presence in the lives of her friends and family and her sound counsel was always sought in times of tumult. Her warm candor and ability to remain optimistic in the face of any and all adversity was cherished by many.

She is survived by her daughter, Kam Buchan Hurst, son-in-law Ricky Hurst, granddaughters Jessica Buchan Seaford, Jordan Buchan, and Mary Kathryn Hurst, and great-grandchildren Leah Buchan, Willow Auman, and Levi Seaford.
