Mary Lou Pazour began her sixth term on the Marion City Council on January 1, 2014. A life-long Marion resident and graduate of Marion High School, she graduated from Coe College with additional work at SUI. She is a veteran of the United States Navy, achieving rank of lieutenant junior grade.
She returned to academia as an elementary physical education teacher and became Marion’s first volleyball coach. After 12 years and wondering what else was ‘out there’, she tested and became a Linn County deputy sheriff, retiring after 20 years with the rank of sergeant.
She has served on steering committees for the National League of Cities; Marion Independent School Foundation, which named her to their Hall of Fame; and Coe College’s alumni council. She plays euphonium in the New Horizons Band.
