Louise met her husband, William “Bill” Flinchbaugh when she worked in his family orchard in Loganville. They married in September 1949 and had spent 49 years together until his passing in December 1998. They started their married life in Lancaster County on a chicken farm and moved to the current farm in Hellam Township in 1951. They started Flinchbaugh’s Farm and Orchard shortly after moving there. They ran a farm market out of their garage until their son, Ritchie and family built the current farm market. Louise continued to work at the farm market every day until 3 years ago—a job she loved. The farm and farm market were her life. She liked flowers, the garden, and the farm never wanting to venture far from home. She was a member of Trinity UCC of Hallam and the Women’s Friendship Circle of the church and the York County Farm Bureau.
