    Louise Solheim, wife of Ping founder Karsten Solheim, died Saturday in Phoenix at age 99.

    “Today we lost a very special woman who touched and improved the lives of so many,” John A. Solheim, Karsten and Louise’s youngest son and Ping’s Chairman & CEO, said in a release issued by the company. “Our mother was a blessing to everyone in so many ways. She had a special quality that gave her the ability to bring a smile to everyone’s face and she handled every situation with grace. We looked to her for guidance in all aspects of our lives and she always took great care to advise us, building our confidence to make decisions ourselves. We will miss her dearly. Our entire family is at peace knowing she’s now in God’s care.”

    Louise worked side-by-side with her husband to build Ping into one of the most successful golf equipment companies in the history of the game while raising a family of four children. She vowed the day she was married to put Karsten’s desires and those of their family ahead of her own. “I most definitely wanted it this way,” she often said.

    Louise was born June 6, 1918, in Spokane, Wash.

    Thanks for the link Ranger.

    I knew a lot of that stuff about June, but had never heard that she was the voice of Talky Tina in that classic Twilight Zone episode with Telly Savalas.


    Good Bye Rocky. You will be missed.
