  • We enjoyed our lunches with Lu Ann at The Home Depot. The “WE” are a group of hard of hearing older guys that enjoyed Lu Ann’s laughter once she realized we could neither hear nor understand each other when we talked. Will miss her and our lives are richer for having known Lu Ann.

  • Sorry for your loss. Lou Ann worked for me at Ohio Arundale which I believed changed to the Core and then later at Geauga Plastics. She was a good worked who seldom missed a day. Prayers are with the family.
