Mary Lou was a great lady. Over the last 20 years, I did a lot of home repair and remodeling work for her. She was always good to me and such a joy to work for. I will truly miss her great sense of humor. My wife and I did not learn of her passing until this Friday. We are truly sorry to have missed her funeral services. Our sincere condolences to her nieces and nephews.

Echoing my sister's recollection of Mary Lou, she was a dear family friend, grew up with our father, went to high school and college with our mother, introduced our parents, and shared in all of our family's lives. She was my godmother, and I will treasure the memories of having her in my life. She will be missed. Sincere condolences to all the family.
