Mary Lou was born in Ardmore on Oct. 13, 1924, to William Allen Hill and Pearl Pyeatt Hill. She departed this life on March 4, 2013, in Ardmore. She was married to John B. Fisher in Sulphur, Okla., on Jan. 31, 1942. He preceded her in death in 1978.
Mary Lou had been the librarian at Ardmore High School. Until her retirement, she had been employed by Ardmore Sample Cut and Library for several years. She was an active member of the First United Methodist Church where she was a member of the Chester Dennis Sunday School Class. She had also served on several church committees including the one that started the Epic contemporary service, prayer chain, the soup kitchen and the Walk to Emmaus Group. She was a beloved member of the Bide-a-Wee Club.
Mary Lou had a love of early American primitive antiques, flower gardening and she hooked many beautiful rugs. However, what really lit up her blue eyes was playing with her five great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and Waylan Morris, Ardmore; grandson and wife, Dr. Britt and Meredith Morris, Ardmore; and great-grandchildren, Madelon, Will, Jack, Isabelle and Ava Morris; and granddaughter-in-law, Jaclyn Morris Lide. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law, June and Duane George, Banning, Calif.; and three nephews, Bill Lebo, Ft. Worth, Phil and Greg White, Anaheim, Calif.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John B. Fisher; grandson, John W. Morris; and sister, Irene Lebo.
Pallbearers will be Reed Holden, Brady Holden, Todd Totten, Joe Rison, Dr. Mark Melton and Rick Orr.
