It is with great sadness that the family of Irma Lucille (Lou) Locklin announces her passing on August 1st, 2018, at the age of 88 years in Casper, Wyoming. 

Graveside services will be held at 11:15 a.m., Saturday, August 11, 2018, at Moline Memorial Park.  Visitation will be from 10-11 a.m., Saturday at Esterdahl Mortuary & Crematory, Ltd., 6601-38th Avenue, Moline, prior to the graveside services.  Memorials may be made to an educational program with Riverside United Methodist Church, Moline.  All need to use 70th Street in Moline for access to the funeral home due to the road construction.

Lou was born on April 22, 1930, in Rockford Illinois, to Robert and Florence Stone.  Lou married her High School sweetheart, Robert Locklin, in 1950 and was widowed in 1977. She loved to travel with Bob and continued to travel after his death.

Lou graduated from West Rockford High School, and Rockford University with her degree in education and later went and graduated from Western University with her Masters in Education.  Lou taught at Willard Elementary in Moline and loved all of her students and always said that teaching was the greatest thing she had ever done.  She continued to volunteer tutoring elementary students in Casper after she retired from teaching. 

She was a member of the red hats and enjoyed the weekly luncheons, conversations and company from the women in her group.  She enjoyed spending time with her friends at the Senior Center.

Lou will always be remembered as having the biggest heart, being caring and compassionate, always trying to help others out, with amazing spunk and a great smile. She loved her family and always looked forward to spending time together especially during the holidays when she was able to see everyone. 

Lou is survived by her daughter Betsy, son Mike (Shari), grandsons Robert (Velvet), and Eddee (Charli), granddaughters Amy, and Anna (Adam), great grandchildren Bryce, Addyson, Bretton, Harper, and Cash, and her sister Jean. Lou is preceded in death by her parents Robert E. Locklin, her husband, sister Barbara, brothers Richard and Donald, and her parents Mr & Mrs Robert O. Stone.
