Mary Lou owned and operated art galleries to display her original oil and acrylic paintings that ranged from westerns to scenic seascapes, and was often hired to paint prize bulls, horses, and wall murals. She continued painting and traveling until it was time for her to go to be with her Lord.

Mary Lou received the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ in 1985. Her knowledge in God’s word expanded to teaching the Bible and supporting several ministries that are devoted to sharing the Gospel. Mary Lou was a cancer survivor and was always optimistic with a clever witty personality. She always had a warm smile and spread joy around the world. Many lives have been impacted by Mary Lou’s witness and she will be dearly missed by all who knew her. 

Mary Lou is preceded in death by her husband, Robert L. Meyer; her parents; brother, Ronald Cornelison Jr.; and daughter, Jayne Annette Grabowski. 

She is survived by her daughters, Jody Lee Allen and Jill Marie Halverson; grandchildren, Lydia Grabowski, Lois Starr, Crystal Boyd, Carmine Allen, Kellee Lundquist, and Cindy Epperson; and 15 great-grandchildren.
