    Mary Lou was a wonderful friend, neighbor and church member whom I have known of over 47 years. She was a devoted member of St. John’s and worked behind the scenes quietly to doing so much to support her church. When I think of Mary Lou several words come to memory- Christian, neighbor, devoted wife and mother, good homemaker, great cook, cheerful, caring and most of all fiend. I will miss your loving, caring friendship Mary Lou. RIP, you deserve it.

    One of Gods earthly angels has returned to her heavenly home. She was always thinking and doing for others. Never have I known a woman of such grace. Theres a void in my life that will never be filled.

    Mary Lou was devoted to her family. She cherished her friends and she supported her church. She leaves a wonderful legacy of a lady who walked in faith and humility. I am grateful for her friendship and my sincere sympathy is extended to all members of her family. She was so proud of all of you.

    Mrs. Smith was a wonderful Christian lady that I had the pleasure of knowing while I grew up in St. John’s United Methodist Church. She loved her family, friends and church. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
