On the evening of Friday, May 13, 2022, Lou Ann Smith Barlowe went home to be with the Lord with her family by her side. A native of McDowell County, Lou was born on May 11, 1954 to the late Ernest and Selma Jenkins Smith. 


Lou was a member of Zion Hill Baptist Church. She enjoyed shopping, visiting yard sales and thrift shops. Lou was a loving wife, mother and sister. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
