Mary Lou Wofford was born October 8, 1930, in Fruitland Park, FL, to the late Nathaniel and Matilda Allen. Early Tuesday morning, December 7, 2021, just as the sun rose, our dear mother surrendered to the call of the master, finally taking rest from the labors of servitude of this world. Mary Lou’s life of 91 years extended to such vast dimensions, the number of lives she touched may never be known. She shared love, kindness, and wisdom, and her God-given ability to input words of truth and direction was a wonder in itself. A true woman of prayer, she interceded for many, believing and trusting that God would see them through. Many loved her and her family. She enjoyed feeding and helping all she came in contact with. Mary Lou served as the church clerk for 29 years. She served as cook/cashier in the Sumter County School System. She traveled whenever the spirit of the Lord would lead her. She had a true servant’s heart. She was a Virtuous Woman (Proverbs 31). Her favorite song is "We Are Blessed." Mary Lou was preceded in death by her siblings, Francis Hill, Rhodia McDowell, Susie Allen, Vida Stafford, Estella Smith, Bertha Perry, Juanita Jones, Lillian Bryant, Doretha Allen Croskey, Melvin Waye, Nathaniel Allen, Jr., Daniel Allen, Oliver Allen, Edward Allen, Raymond Allen, and Abraham Allen. She leaves to cherish her memories: loving children, Rodney (Stacey) Wofford, Jennifer Wofford, and Nathaniel Wofford, Jr.; one granddaughter, Tramisha Wofford, great-grandson, Boston Graham, Charles Thomas (like a child/son); sisters, Bernice Black and Odessa Jackson; brother, Dave Solomon (Lena) Allen; godchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and many friends
