York, Maine-On Thursday, December 5, 2019, Mary Lou Carr, passed away peacefully at age 82 surrounded by her family.
Mary Lou was born on August 15, 1937 in Worcester, MA, to Earl and Helen Pike and grew up in Massachusetts. As a young adult Mary Lou moved to York Harbor, Maine where she raised her family and lived for over 40 years. She was a bartender for many years and was very involved in the Elks, serving as the 1st President of the Wells Elks Ladies Auxillary.
Mary Lou was feisty. She had a great sense of humor, and her one-liners made you laugh out loud. She loved country music and traveling “up North” with her husband Bob. She adored being a grandmother. Into her eighties she was still a flirt.
Above all else, Mary Lou was a wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was blessed with a husband, children, grandchildren, siblings and friends who truly enjoyed her and have amazing memories and stories of their adventures over the years.
Mary Lou was preceded in death by her parents and son Wayne Shedd. She is survived by her loving husband Robert “Bob” Carr; her two children Glen Shedd and wife Joura Shedd; and Laurie Morrison and husband Ron Morrison; granddaughters Henna Shedd and fiancé Matt Wells and Macy Morrison; siblings Carol Fisher, Everett Pike and wife Mary, Gordon Pike and wife Melinda, Brenda Thomas and husband Frank and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
