Mary Lou Galliher Thompson, 90, the widow of Franklin David “FD” Thompson, went home to be with the Lord, Thursday afternoon, November 16, 2017 at Prince George Healthcare Center. 
 Mrs. Thompson was born the daughter of James Allen Galliher and Pearlie Pauline Johnson Galliher on October 10, 1927 in Florence County. She completed the education program of her generation. She was an active member of the local chapter of the Woodmen of the World where she served as secretary and treasurer for a number of years. She was the epitome of a “Southern Mom” as she turned a house into a home, enjoyed cooking and baking, planting and working flowers, and spending time with her family and friends. She attended Graves Station Baptist Church and the Cornerstone Baptist Church participating in numerous church functions. Her legacy is fulfilled in Proverbs 31:28, “Her children rise up and call her blessed”. 
Mary and FD were married Dec. 8, 1946. Their home was blessed with four children: Franklin Earl (Glenna) Thompson, Jimmy Dale (Loretta) Thompson, Donnie David Thompson, and George Allen Thompson; seven grandchildren, David (Tangela) Thompson, Jeffrey (Crystal) Thompson, Michael (Beverly) Thompson, Jamie (Jessie) Thompson, Rose (Kevin) T. Holt, Jody Thompson, and Courtney (Stephen) T. Doggette; 15 great grandchildren, Cody (Tori), Brandon, Dylan, Kristiana, Britny (Matthew), Donnie, Kirsten, Jalen, Will, Troy, Emma, Jamison, Landon, and Riker; and two great great grandchildren, Baxlee and Jagger.
 She also leaves behind: a brother, James L. Galliher; three sisters, Wanda (Sherwood) Gray, Bernice (Earl) Hanna, and Patsy (Duane) Hyman-Brown; and a number of nieces and nephews. 
 She was predeceased by: her parents; her husband; two sons, Donnie and George; and a sister, Ethel Thompson.
 A Home Going Celebration will be 2PM, Saturday, November 18, 2017 at the Williams Hill Original Free Will Baptist Church, Hemingway, SC. Interment will follow in the church cemetery directed by the Georgetown Chapel of McKenzie Funeral Home. Officiating will be Rev. Greg Thompson and Rev. Earl Hanna. 
 Visitation will be prior the service from 12:30-1:30 in the church sanctuary.
 The family extends a special appreciation to Prince George Healthcare Palmetto Unit and Tidelands Hospice for the care, compassion, and professionalism given to their mother.
