                 Jessie Lou was a wonderful wife, mother and cared deeply for her family, friends and neighbors.  She was a very positive person and always looked for the good in everyone.  She had a big heart and an amazing ability to bring joy to all with her kind words. She always had a hot pot of coffee brewing and welcomed all to her home. Her porch was a place for love, laughter and storytelling.  Jessie Lou enjoyed being a hostess, especially having her family and friends over for her famous Sunday spaghetti dinners.

Jessie Lou loved to send cards and notes that would brighten up someone’s day.  She always found a way to get to your heart – where she will always hold a cherished place.  She enjoyed reading, decorating her home especially during the holidays, and getting her hair and nails done weekly.  You would never see her without her signature pink lipstick.
