She was a model of positivity and fitness. She participated in many 5K marathons; earning multiple top place finishes. Mary Lou enjoyed baking cookies – you could count on getting a fresh baked cookie whenever you went to her house. She also enjoyed shopping, working crossword puzzles, working in her yard, and beach vacations. She was a longtime member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
