Obituary for Marylou Donovan

Marylou Barnett Donovan, 91, wife of the late James (JD) Donovan, passed away April 2, 2018 at Georgetown Community Hospital. Marylou was born June 8, 1926 to Emma Myers Barnett and Herman Barnett in Myers, Kentucky. She grew up in the Myers and Carlisle areas and graduated from Carlisle High School in 1943 as an Honor Student. An ambitious Marylou moved to Lexington after she graduated from high school and lived at the YWCA as she attended Fugazzi Business School. She worked as a stenographer and secretary in Lexington and eventually began working for Eagle Window Sales, where she worked for over 30 years. Marylou married JD in 1947 and they moved into the Meadowthorpe subdivision to raise their family. Marylou lived in Meadowthorpe for over 50 years and was a member of Hillcrest Baptist Church. Marylou is survived by her best friend and daughter, Danielle Kearns (Randy); a daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Hughes; six grandchildren, Ashley Carr Cruickshank (Chris), Donovan Kearns, Jyler Donovan, Faith Kearns, Phillip Donovan, and Amy Kearns; five great-grandchildren, Savannah Carr, Delaney Carr, Kelsey Carr, Kaleigh Michaels, and Carrson Cruickshank; and a great-nephew, Shawn Blackburn. In addition to her parents, Marylou is preceded in death by her husband, James (JD) Donovan; two sons, Captain Phillip Donovan and Michael Donovan; and a grandson, Joseph “Casey” Carr. Marylou will be remembered for many things, including her wit, generosity, strength, and curious nature. She cared deeply for her friends and family and she formed lasting relationships with the people that came into her life. Visitation will be Friday from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Tucker, Yocum, and Wilson Funeral Home in Georgetown, KY with a funeral service immediately following.
