Mary Lou Terrell Gill, age 76 and a resident of Mount Hermon, passed away Wednesday night November 23, 2022, peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family. In her younger years, she worked as a compassionate and caring nurse. Later, she worked alongside her husband Daniel on the family dairy farm. Mary Lou was a true example of what a loving and devoted Christian wife and mother should be. She was a friend to everyone she met and had a sweet, gentle spirit that was complimented by a zest for living life to the fullest. She was a longtime active member of Mt. Hermon Missionary Baptist Church. She loved God and gladly shared her faith and all that God had done for her with many people. She served her church in many capacities including piano player, Sunday School teacher and faithful member. She lovingly prepared many meals in her home for various pastors and visiting preachers, as well as their families. Mary Lou will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She cherished her family and clung to her faith even during the darkest days of her life, showing all those around not only how to live but also how to die. She will be forever missed.
