Mary Louise Craig

Mary Louise Craig, age 89, of Osgood, passed away Friday afternoon, April 7, 2017 at Kentuckiana Medical Center in Clarksville. She was born September 22, 1927 in San Bernardino, California to the late James Herbert and Mary Maybel Nunn Birdwell.

Mary moved to the Osgood area around 1989 to be near her daughter, Robin L. Reeves, where she remained living the rest of her life. You may have seen her on the streets of Osgood proudly driving her golf cart. She always had a smile on her face and loved saying hello to everyone! She was known for her style in dressing that was strikingly unconventional and was sometimes far-fetched in appearance! She had attended the Osgood Christian Church and the Senior Citizen Center where she enjoyed playing bingo.

Survivors include her daughters, Robin L. (Tim) Reeves of Osgood, Mary Lea Bekkers of Leesburg, Florida and Joanna Padilla of Mesa, Arizona. Six grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren also survive.
