Mary Lu Payne

 

Mary Lu Peterson Payne, 77, of Owensboro, passed away Monday, March 20, 2023, at AdventHealth in Daytona Beach, FL. She was born September 5, 1945, in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, to the late Victor and Lucille Shea Peterson. Mary worked in St. Paul, Minnesota where she volunteered at the local hospital, and worked as a secretary and customer relations for 3M Corporation for 38 years before retirement in 2006.

She enjoyed traveling with her husband and spending time at their condo in Florida, going to eat with her close friends, reading, and was a Kentucky Colonel.
