Never able to sit still, Mary Lou was always busy – she developed many long-lasting, loving friends through her years of work. There was also a special place in her heart for her special children with whom she saw each day on the school bus.
Mary Lou and Dick’s love of friends and cooking always meant there was an open door to receive guests and plenty of delicious meals to be shared. Many memories were made from parties held in the back yard. Her love of arts and crafts is ever present as decorations in her and many friends’ and families’ homes.
The family wishes to thank the nurses at Lynchburg General Hospital CICU for their loving care.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2013, at 6:00 P.M. at Tharp Funeral Home, Lynchburg. The family will receive friends one hour prior.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, 2050 Langhorne Road, Suite 201, Lynchburg, VA 24501.
