Obituary

Mary Lou Harmon, 86, passed away Saturday, November 21, 2020 surrounded by her family.

She was born on July 9, 1934 in Adario to Frank and Ruby (nee Smith) Imhoff. She was a resident of Ashland and Richland Counties nearly all her life. She graduated from Savannah High School in 1952. Most recently, Mary Lou resided at the St. Martin House in Ashland.

Mary Lou married the love of her life, Voy Lee Harmon, on May 8, 1954 and they were married 62 years.

She was a third-generation member of the United Methodist Church of Savannah. She participated in the church choir, prayer group, attended Sunday School, and also was a member of the Friendship Circle. Mary Lou would readily volunteer to help with outreach and church programs whenever asked.

Mary Lou was a homemaker and loved sewing and crafting of all kinds. In the early years, she made nearly all the clothing for her daughters and taught them how to sew. She made hundreds of beautiful commemorative plaques for graduations and the life events of family and friends. Mary Lou and a close friend made nearly 500 quilts to donate to anyone in the community that needed a hug.

For almost ten years, Mary Lou and a dear friend owned the Handcraft Shop in Greenwich where they sold supplies, made handcrafted items, and hosted crafting classes. During retirement, Mary Lou and Voy opened their home to host a weekly crafting day where friends would gather to eat cookies and prepare items to sell at the Crestview Craft Show to raise funds for the Clear Creek Historical Society.

Together, Voy and Mary Lou participated in several different plays in the Adario and Savannah communities. They met regularly with classmates and other Savannah Alumni members and frequently attended the Crestview Senior Citizens Luncheons.

With her family and friends, Mary Lou loved attending monthly Saturday Night Supper Club dinners, Postcard Club meetings, shopping trips, athletic and musical events, and gatherings of any kind. Her loved ones were her world and she could be found cheering on her grandkids at as many of their events as possible. She loved taking pictures, social activities of any kind, word search puzzles, and kept detailed journals her entire life.

She is survived by her four daughters, Bethany (Doug) Fitch of Ashland, Anita (Randy) Cains of Shiloh, Janet Nelson of Savannah, Amy (Darrell) Clark of Nova; 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandson; and sisters-in-law Joyce Imhoff and Carol Imhoff. She is preceded in death by her husband, Voy Lee Harmon, parents, and brothers Ned, Paul, Wayne, and Jim Imhoff.

An interment service will be held, Friday, November 27, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. in the Savannah Cemetery with Reverend Johnnie F. Swann officiating. Guests attending are asked to wear mask for the ceremony.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the United Methodist Church of Savannah, 10 West Main Street, Savannah, OH 44874 or the Crestview Educational Foundation, PO Box 1701, Mansfield, OH 44901.

Online condolences may be shared on the funeral home’s website at denbowfh.com.

Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home & Crematory is handling the arrangements.

Dear Beth,
I am so sad to hear of your mom’s death. It was a joy to visit with her whenever I attended church in Savannah. Her obituary told me many things about her I didn’t know. She and your dad were certainly pillars of our Savannah/Clear Creek/Crestview communities. Mary Lou truly lived a fulfilled life.
Sending a hug,
Donna Fulk Jackson
