R.I.P. Mary Louise Herrick

Another good organist went to the other side Saturday. Mary Lou Herrick played and directed at Mount Airy Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia for many years. After her husband Clyde died she moved to our town which was actually her husband’s hometown where they still owned a home. Mary Lou was active in the American Guild of Organists and for years sponsored the third prize for improvisation. She studied with and babysat for Vincent Persichetti. She was 81.
