She is preceded in death by her parents Frank (Jessie) Likely; brother, Frank Likely Sr.; and sisters, Velma Likely, Bertha Crittenden, and Mary Kyler Likely.

Lou Ann was born on April 18, 1969, in Evergreen. She graduated from Red Level High School in 1987. Lou Ann had a very special gift that did not allow her to work in a normal workforce. What she lacked in the work world she made up for in the real world. Lou Ann was the type of person who never met a stranger. She never had an enemy, if you met her you would know exactly what we mean. Lou loved everybody and everybody loved her and she was always smiling and happy. That is what made Lou so unique, she gave and never complained.

Viewing hours are scheduled for Fri., Dec. 18, from 5-7 p.m. at Kirks Funeral Home in Andalusia. The funeral is scheduled for Sat., Dec. 19, 2015, at 11 a.m. at Kirk’s Funeral Chapel (Andalusia) then to North Baptist Church (Red Level), reception to follow at the church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Lou Ann Likely’s life.

Flowers and condolences may be sent to 302 Carver Circle, Andalusia.
