Obituary of Mary Lou Stahlman

                Mrs. Mary Lou Stahlman, 75, formerly of Reno, passed away on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Oakwood Heights in Oil City.

                Mary Lou enjoyed flower gardening, sewing, and reading.  She took great pride in her home and taking care of her home for many years.  A fond memory for Mary Lou was when the family went to the world’s fair in Knoxville, TN.  She also enjoyed sending cards to family and friends for all occasions, hoping to put a smile on their face.  Her greatest joys were her grandchildren.
