Louise Barbara Trump was born on July 15, 1900 in Westfield, Chautauqua County, New York, the fifth child and youngest daughter of Johann Leonhard Trump and Barbara Pfeifer. She lived in Westfield until the 1910s, and went to school there. Her family moved to Ripley, a town west of Westfield sometime in the 1910s. She lived in Ripley up until she got married. Louise married Albert Kolstee, son of Jan Willem te Kolstee and Johanna Geertruida Theodora Hesselink, on April 14, 1926 in Westfield. They lived in Clymer, New York.

On May 14, 1937, her husband awoke in the middle of the night to heat some milk for their daughter. Some time later, she heard and explosion and soon smoke filled the house. She crawled out of a window and ran to get help from a neighbor. Albert was found dead severely burned in the kitchen. Their children were rushed a hospital in Corry, Pennsylvania. The children were reported to be okay. After Albert's death, Louise was appointed to administer Albert's estate. There was a dispute regarding some property that Albert had purchased in the early 1930s, which was later brought to the Chautauqua County Court. On February 6, 1941, Louise married Arthur Clark Lewis and they lived in Clymer until Arthur died on September 4, 1957. After Arthur died, Louise lived in Jamestown, New York. She died there on March 12, 1985. She was buried with Albert at Holland Cemetery in Clymer, New York.
