Mary Lou DeWeese, 85, of Tiffin, passed away peacefully Friday morning, October 16, 2020 at the Volunteers of America Autumnwood Care Center.
Mary Lou was born in North Baltimore to Cloyce and Bertha (Thompson) Damon on December 30, 1934. Married to William P. Galliher, they divorced after 26 years of marriage. She was married to Nelson Price, who preceded her in death. She was married to Joseph DeWeese for 34 years and he recently preceded her in death.
Mary Lou is survived by her children, Tim Galliher of Wichita, KS; Jeff (Sally) Galliher of Findlay, and Amy Allen of Tiffin; 10 grandchildren, Kelli Huffman, Mindy Risner, Katie Looper, Kelcey Willman, Courtney Christian, Andy Galliher, McKenna Allen, Eric Galliher, Sydney Allen, Samuel Allen; 10 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren and her step children, Stephen, Timothy and Jolene.
She was preceded in death by her parents, infant daughter, Cathy Coleen Galliher and siblings, Tommy Damon, Dale Damon, Evelyn Burrell, Ardnell Hosler, and Vivian Conine.
She was the Homecoming Queen and graduate of North Baltimore High School. She was a member of Grace Baptist Church Tiffin, Ohio, and was known for her devout faith. Mary Lou owned the Baskin-Robbins stores in Tiffin and Findlay for several years. Her greatest joy was being a housewife, loving mother, and grandmother who loved to journal. Often what was thought to be an empty notebook was filled with daily thoughts, prayers, and interesting facts she had learned. Mary Lou will be remembered for her contagious laugh, greeting, “Hi’ya”, and her sunglasses, hence her nickname, “Hollywood”.
Her services will be Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 12:00 Noon at Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory with Rev. Patrick Bottoms officiating. Burial will follow in Arcadia.
Friends may visit with the family on Thursday at the funeral home at 11:00 AM.
