I am so sorry to hear of Marys passing. I have not lived in Taylorville since 1990 so I haven't kept up with people I used to know. Again I am so sorry to hear this.

My deepest sympathy to Mary Lou's family. I have known the Wallace family since we were kids going to school at St. Mary's. I loved my visits with Mary Lou when I would see her out and about. I will always remember her smile and her positive outlook on life. God bless!
