    Mary Lou Geerts, 91, of Pleasant Hill, Iowa, and formerly of Elwood, passed away on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, at Pleasant Hill The Shores and Immanuel Community in Pleasant Hill, Iowa.

    A celebration of Mary Lou's life will be held at 11 A.M., Saturday, November 24, 2018, at Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa. Visitation will be held prior to the service from 9:30 A.M. to 11 A.M. at Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa. Burial will be at the Elwood, Iowa Cemetery.

    Mary Louise Farr was born on January 12, 1927 in Clinton, Iowa, to John and Mable (Brown) Farr. She was a graduate of Clinton High School and then received her Cosmetology certificate on December 2, 1946 in Clinton, Iowa. She married Clarence Geerts on August 16, 1947 at the Lutheran Church in DeWitt, Iowa.

    Mary Lou first practiced as a Cosmetologist in Clinton with her friend Norma from 1946 to 1947. Upon her marriage to Clarence, they moved to rural Elwood where she became a farmwife and mother and continued to work as a Cosmetologist. For many years, Mary Lou had been the staff hairdresser at the Maquoketa Care Center and had also worked with area funeral homes, including Carson's, in that same role.

    Mary Lou was a member of the Elwood United Methodist Church. She was a former member of the Wyoming Country Club and DeWitt Moose Lodge. She loved going "shopping", and enjoyed bingo, playing cards, the Red Hat Society, golfing, fishing, dancing, traveling, going to garage sales, and attending sports activities of her children.

    Those left to honor Mary Lou's memory include her children, Brad (Kandi) Geerts of El Paso, IL, Roger (Lynn) Geerts of Davenport, IA, Jolee Barnes of La Grange, MO, and Joy Keeney (Michelle Tredway) of Mitchellville, IA; 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband Clarence on September 10, 2014.

    In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, a Mary Lou Geerts memorial fund has been established.

    I met Mary Lou many years ago. Mary Lou was my mother's best friend (Doris Clifton). They went to beauty school together and she was with my mother the night my mother and father met at the Davenport Turner's Hall dance. I remember going to the farm when I was a little girl. My mother is gone now, but our family sends our deepest condolences to your family.

    I met Mary Lou at Maquoketa Care as I occasionally had clients there. I often recall her smiling face and her love and caring for all of her clients. A lovely lady--may she rest in peace.
