Obituary Mary Diane Howell Mary Diane "LuLu" Howell was born in Powhatan County Virginia, on April 6, 1959, to Willie Cormack Scruggs and Mary Elizabeth Jackson Scruggs. Mary, affectionately called "Lulu," was educated in Powhatan County Public Schools and as a child enjoyed attending Hollywood Baptist Church with her father and other family members. She liked to fish and was a skilled hunter. She also had a love of music, enjoyed dancing, driving her brother's race car, and the school bus. Lulu had a deeply personal relationship with the Lord and faithfully read her Bible daily. She always said, "God is good – All the time." She never had a harsh word for anyone – never angry even if people were not good to her. Mary was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, McDonald Jackson, Geroy Taylor, and Willie Scruggs. Mary is survived by her devoted husband; Bruce Howell; a devoted son; Keshon Lamont Scruggs; one brother, Kenneth Scruggs (Maxcine); mother-in-law, Barbara Ann Howell; nieces, Shanika Scruggs, Terria Taylor, nephews; Kenneth Scruggs Jr., Michael Jackson, Terry Taylor; one brother-in-law, Warren Howell (Elaine), sisters-in-law; Lloyd Brydie (LaMont), Donna Howell, Tracey Winston.

Until we meet again Those special memories of you will always bring a smile. If only I could have you back, For just a little while. Then we could sit and talk again, Just like we used to do. You always meant so very much, And always will too. The fact that you're no longer here, Will always cause me pain, But you're forever in my heart, until we meet again.
