Mary Lou (Heal) Poole was born on April 30, 1931 in Wisconsin. She grew up in a country store where the local farmers brought in eggs and milk to trade. The store’s potbellied stove always had a group of people around it. On the farm, Mary Lou and her sister would sit on the plow and plant tobacco.
Mary Lou went on to raise three wonderful children: Cary, Paul, and Carla.
In the 1960’s Mary Lou started working. She became the first woman to sell furniture at Meier & Frank where she proceeded to outsell all of the men. Her commissions (in today’s money) would be about $250,000 a year!
Mary Lou continued working throughout her life until she contracted Covid around Christmas of 2019.
Mary Lou will be greatly missed by her family.
