Lula M. King (Lou Musgrove), 92, of the Inn at Northwood Village, Dover, Ohio, passed away Wednesday (July 13, 2016) in the Union Hospital, Dover, Ohio.
She was born on Aug. 24, 1923, to the late Ida (Owens) and Clyde Wilson in Daybrook.
Lou was a graduate of Farmington High School and trained to become a registered nurse. She worked at the Fairmont Emergency Hospital and for many years as a surgical nurse at Fairmont General Hospital, where she retired in 1988.
Lou lived most of her life in Fairmont, where she enjoyed time with family and friends and activities such as square dancing, weekly game nights and traveling.
During the last year, Lou moved into assisted living in Dover. Her favorite activities became playing bingo and going out for ice cream. She kept the ladies at the Inn entertained with her blunt, dry wit.
Lou is survived by three children, Mary Ellen Hall of Dover, Ohio, Robert L. (Debby) Musgrove of Fairmont, and Lou Anne (Marty) Pierce of Navarre, Ohio.
She is also survived by five grandchildren, Tracey (Colin) Posgate, Rob (Amanda) Musgrove, Jeff (Karla) Hall, Cindy (Aaron) Bunner and Bree (Josh Evans) Miller. Lou has seven great-grandchildren, Kayla and Jayson Hall, Cara and Dennis Bunner, Ayla and Tyler Musgrove, and Deklan Posgate.
She was predeceased by her parents; sister, Lillian Wilson, brother and sister-in-law, Donald and Sue Wilson; husband, Robert E. Musgrove; and a very special friend and companion, Floyd (Bucky) Henderson.
The family requests that memorial donations may be made to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Ave. SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663 or to The Alzheimer's Organization at alz.org.
Friends and family may visit from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday at the Ford Funeral Home, 201 Columbia St., Fairmont. A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. in the funeral home with Reverend Stanley Merrifield officiating. Interment will follow at the Mannington Memorial Cemetery in Mannington.
