Mary Lou made her home in Cheraw and raised her 4 boys there. Her life was devoted to giving her family the best life that she could. She loved attending football and basketball games and was extremely proud of all of her sons.

She was a faithful member of Cheraw United Methodist Church. Mary Lou is probably best remembered for the many years that she taught at Cheraw School. She was loved for her compassion and creativity.
