Mary Lou Elmer, 75, of Las Vegas, Nevada, passed Sunday, May 10, 2020. Mary Lou was born to Jesse Sloan, and Sarah McNemee, March 02, 1945 in Greeley, Colorado. Mary Lou worked at 7-11 as manager for 25 years in Las Vegas, until she retired.

Mary Lou joined the random acts of kindness rock movement in 2018 and shared her art with many strangers, friends and family. She collected so many things and everything she collected had a story.

We miss and love you mom. We will be telling all the stories you left us with.

Marilou you were always such a sweet and kind person and always so creative and artistic. Enjoy your reunion with your family in heaven and know your family here misses you terribly already. Peace and love be with you and your loved ones in their time of sorrow.
As a child I remember Marilou always dressing up for occasions- she always looked so pretty with her long hair and make up No matter where we were Marilou always looked so pretty! Marilou used to do ceramics and I always looked forward to seeing what she did next.
My dad always told a story of when they were kids he and Jack put Marilou in a baby carriage and pushed her down a long hill. Never heard the outcome although they all had a great laugh every time talking about it including Marylou
Peace be with you ❤️
