Mary Lou Maher, 92, of Texarkana, TX. passed away on June 10, 2020 at her home. Mary Lou was born on February 4, 1928 in Texarkana, AR. She was a very proud and dedicated nurse. While practicing she met her husband Tommy Maher while he was recuperating from a broken back. She was a dedicated wife and most loving mother anyone could have. Nothing came before her family! She loved all animals and whether a stranger or a friend, she would go out of her way to help them. She loved providing food, clothing and other necessary items to help them along and better their life. She was always encouraging to others to get as much education as they could and always believe in themselves and never let others get them down.

Preceded in death by her husband Tommy Maher; a brother George Thomas and one sister Freda.

Survived by her two sons, Dr. Mark Maher and Mike Maher both of Texarkana, TX.

Private graveside funeral service was Friday, June 12, 2020 at Hillcrest Memorial Park with Brian Hevrin officiating.
