Louise passed away on Monday "painlessly and peacefully," according to a post from Marty Scott, a member of Beatles tribute group Liverpool Legends.
He wrote: "It’s really hard for me to get words out at the moment, but Lou meant the world to me. Since the day I met her my life was changed forever.
"It was just a few weeks after George passed and it started a whirlwind of change in my entire world."
He added: "She’s been my family now for over 20 years. It’s hard to explain our relationship but at times she was truly my sister, sometimes my grandmother, sometimes my child, and sometimes my best friend.
"We spent so much time together and travelled to so many places. She was a huge part of my life and did so many things for me and Liverpool Legends.
"She opened so many darn doors for us and never took no for an answer."
The distraught friend finished his post by confirming he had been to see Louise and say goodbye a couple of weeks ago as he admitted her memory "will always live on with all of us".
He added: "There are so many great memories and they will always keep me smiling every time I think of her. Louise had the biggest heart.
"She’d give the shirt off her back if you needed one. She made so many people happy in her very unique life. Her story really deserves to be told someday."
