Mary Lou was born in Somerset, KY on October 26, 1956. She graduated from Franklin Co. HS 1976. She worked at Fruit of the Loom, Certified Tool and caring for senior citizens throughout Franklin and Shelby Co. However, her true passion was helping people any way she could, when she was able. Whether it be through donating toys at Christmas, sending care packages to our troops, baking cakes, making candy or crocheting various items to donate to the Sheriffs Dept. for those in need. She tried her best to help people and it brought her great joy.
A Celebration of Mary Lou’s life will be held Saturday, March 26, 2022, at St. John’s Baptist Church from 2:30p until 4p with a Memorial Service immediately following. Her final resting place will be in Somerset with her babies and forever in the hearts of the many lives she touched. In lieu of flowers we ask that you would do as Mary Lou did, pay-it-forward, do a good deed or any act of kindness. Help who you can, how you can.
