Mary Lou had a great love for life.  She enjoyed playing the organ, sewing, making quilts, baking and bingo with good friends.  Mary Lou was very spiritual and was an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.  She loved being around her grandchildren with whom she created many everlasting memories.
