Mama Lo lived every instance of her life with intention and compassion for those around her. She was committed to caring for other people and did it with remarkable grace.  Mama Lo was always one of the first to arrive with food when you were sick, first to listen to you when you were sad, and the first to cheer you on in every circumstance. There is no doubt her passion for people was infectious and left an impact on the city of Morton, Mississippi throughout her life.  Services:  11am Friday, January 15, 2021  First Baptist Church - Morton.  sit: 9:30am till service time at First Baptist Church - Morton.  Interment will follow the service at Morton Memorial Gardens

She was a long time member of First Baptist Church of Morton and Eastern Star of Morton.  Mama Lo worked at the Scott County Hospital as office manager and accountant for most of her married life. After retirement, she was a substitute teacher at Morton’s Junior High School and Morton’s Senior High School.
