Mary Glen Joy Fouts

Fouts, Mary Glen Joy Born September 30, 1944 - Died January 24, 2009. Mary Glen, beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother and caring friend to everyone she met, passed away peacefully after a battle with cancer on January 24, 2009. Her beauty and love for life, from early childhood (with her blonde "Heidi" pigtails and big blue eyes) until her last day, will be remembered by all who knew her. She had an irrepressible spirit and joy that she imparted to all. She grew up in Highland Park, the daughter of the late Jimmy Joy, renowned clarinet player and orchestra leader, and the late Sally Joy. She attended Highland Park High School where she was varsity cheerleader, involved in plays and musicals, and voted class favorite. She later became President of the HPHS Alumni Association and was very active with alumni activities. She was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority at Southern Methodist University, chosen as a campus beauty and was first runner up in the Miss Dallas Contest in 1964. Her infectious enthusiasm and spirit led to her being on the very first Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader team. Mary Glen had an incomparable love of music and dancing. In the late 70's she starred in numerous Dallas Junior League Follies, and later danced with Class Act, a seniors tap dance group. She had a great zest and curiosity for life, history and travel. She and her husband, Lou, enjoyed many trips and cruises together. They also loved dancing with the Spring Dance Club every year. While raising her children, she taught Sunday school and spent countless hours volunteering for numerous causes. Later, she was a loyal employee, recently celebrating her 20-year anniversary with Global 360. Mary Glen will be greatly missed by her husband, Louis M. Fouts III; sister Avionne Ribelin; her three children - Greg Aldridge, Ashley Aldridge Meece (and husband Mike), and Turner Aldridge (and fiance Patty Difonzo); granddaughters Lyla Joy Meece and McKinley Aldridge Meece; stepdaughter Molly Holm and her husband Trey and their sons John, Paul and Luke; her nieces, Sally Warren and Teresa Cook, and nephew Roy Ribelin. A memorial service will be held at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Dallas, Texas on January 27, 2009 at 4:00 p.m.
