    Mary Lou (Steel) Lehman, 82, of Laurelville, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2018, in Logan, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on July 27, 1936, in Laurelville, the daughter of the late Oakley and Bessie (Weaver) Steel.

    She is survived by her children, Teresa (Mike) Smith, of Laurelville, Mike (Kathy) Butts, of Laurelville, Tom Butts, of Columbus, and Troy Lehman, of Logan; sister, Donna Hanes, of Stoutsville; grandchildren, Joni Baker, Jesse Smith, Jeff Butts, Stephanie Renner, Amanda Renner, T.J.

Teresa & Mike and rest of Mary Lou's family.
Rick looked out for your mom at the manor and she looked out for him.
Remember helping dig her car out a few years back.
She was a sweet nice person and would wave as she passed our house when
headed up or down the "Ridge". She can rest easy with Rick now.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Let us know if you need anything by just stopping by

I am so sorry to hear that Mary Lou died. She always made me feel welcomed, and made me laugh. This must be a difficult and sad time for you. I love you very much and I want you to know I am thinking of you both.

I am so sorry for your loss Mary Lou was such an awesome human being so full of love and passion and compassion so her family and community and Friends and the fact of the matter is even strangers!
One of the few with outstanding character and genuine love in her heart for everyone!
It's probably not possible to know the countless lives she's touched and affected in so many ways I being one of those as a young child just moving into the area it was fantastic just being around such a quality individual!
God bless you all in your time of need definitely praying for everyone!
