She worked at Teague’s Grocery Store for many years and served as Treasurer for her church, Mortons Gap Christian Church, for 35 years. Mama Lou was well known at her church for her cooking skills-especially her fried chicken and cherry pie. What a legacy she leaves behind.

Visitation will be held from 9 am-11 am on Thursday July 18th at Mortons Gap Christian Church with the funeral service to follow at 11 am. Burial will follow at Odd Fellows cemetery. Reid-Walters Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Casket bearers will be her grandsons.
