November 2, 1935 – December 2, 2019
Mary Lou Morris, 84, of Marble Falls, Texas, passed away peacefully on December 2, 2019, surrounded by her family in the beautiful hill country.
Mary was born in Bartlett, Texas on November 2, 1935 to Willie and Margaret Parker. She graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, Texas in 1954. It was there that she met Allan, the love of her life.
On June 25th, 1954, Mary and Allan were married and started a wonderful family of their own. Their eldest daughter, Teresa was born in 1955, and their younger daughter, Kelly was later born in 1961. The four of them shared a life full of love and laughter. Mary was elegant, loving and so charming. She knew just how to host any gathering and made each and every person who walked through her door feel right at home. She had the remarkable ability to show everyone in her path the most sincere gift of love and compassion – she truly had the grace of a proper southern woman. Mary had a deep love for her family, her friends, and her sweet dog Dooney, who wanted nothing more than to cuddle in his momma’s warm lap. Her family was everything to her and you always knew how much she loved you and how proud she was of each of you. She will be dearly missed by so many.
Mary is survived by her loving husband, Allan, her daughter Teresa and son-in-law George Farr, her daughter Kelly and son-in-law Tom Freireich, her grandchildren Jennifer and husband Michael Beatty, Chris Cunningham and wife Bethany, T.J., Sam, and Macy Freireich, and her great-grandchildren Ty and Liam Beatty and Wyatt, Lyla and Myles Cunningham. Mary is also survived by her sister-in-law Frances Ellington, her brothers-in-law George Morris and Charles Rucker, her beloved nieces Nona Harbour and Cindy Brown, nephews Doug Morris, Chuck Rucker and Michael Cowen and a host of longtime friends. Mary is preceded in death by her mother Margaret Parker and father Willie Parker and sister Doris Rucker.
A funeral service for Mary Morris will be held at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Marble Falls, Texas on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 10:00 am. She will be laid to rest at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park.

Mary was my best friend from the time we were
Teen Agers , Our parents were best friends and
We were together every off day, both our fathers worked together at the refinery.
We would go camping and fishing on Galveston
Beach in an old grey pickup with a tarp oleum thrown over the back, happy as larks.
As we got older and more mischevious, we would place pillows in our beds at night and slip out. Once on July 4th we rode my horse to the
Decker drive in on July 4 th. And he broke loose
When they started popping fire crackers. Me and my daddy spent the next 2 wks with a feed
Bucket going from pasture to pasture til we found him. Think we were grounded for a month. I can’t beleive your gone mary, even tho
We didn’t get to see one another that often, were always s close in heart. I will miss you dearly, love u forever, your “ best bud”, Virge.
