Mick, Mary Lou

Written by David Green.

Mary Lou Mick, 75, of W. Spring St., Fayette, Ohio, died March 10, 2011, at Flower Hospital in Sylvania, Ohio, following a brief illness.

She was born Oct. 1, 1935, in Athol, Ky., the daughter of the late Wallace and Minnie (Tolar) Wilson. She married Larry Mick on Nov. 23, 1979, in Fayette, and he survives.

Mary Lou grew up in Athol before moving to the Fayette area in her teenage years. She retired from Fayette Tubular Products in 1994, following 42 years of service. She enjoyed quilting, making afghans and crafts, and is fondly remembered for her skill in cooking and baking.

Surviving Mary Lou besides her husband are two daughters, Roxann (and Jim) Crisp of Toledo, Ohio, and Rhonda (and Ed) Watkins of Clanton, Ala.; a son, Randy Robinson of Fayette; seven brothers, Robert Wilson of Ypsilanti, Mich., Charles (and Betty) Wilson of Bellevue, Ky., Joe (and Bonnie) Wilson of Fayette, Danny (and Carol) Wilson of Wauseon, Ohio, Wilfred (and Carolyn) Wilson of Fayette, Bert (and Lula) Wilson of Napoleon, Ohio, and Larry (and Lori) Wilson of Napoleon; two sisters, Bonnie (and John) Elkins of Hudson, Mich., and Myrtle (and Robert) Brehm of Wauseon; five grandchildren, Casey Johnson, Sheena Bucklew, David Watkins, Andy Crisp and Adam Crisp; and two great-grandchildren, Gavin Liechty and Braylin Barr.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and a brother, Gary Lynn, in infancy.

Funeral services are planned at 2 p.m. Monday, March 14, at Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette, with Rev. Robert Damschroder officiating. Interment will follow in Tedrow Cemetery. Visitation is scheduled from 2-8 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

Those planning an expression of sympathy may consider memorial contributions in memory of Mary Lou to the Gorham Fayette Fire Department.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
