    I bowled with Mary Lou at Dewey Gardens in the mid eighties with her friend Mary Jane. She was such fun. She had so many sayings for cetain shots we would make and always made us laugh. I was just looking at one of our old team photos the other day ….Ron our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family… sincerely Lisa, Vickie, and Linda

    My prayers and thoughts are with you Ron. I knew Mary Lou from when she came in to the Health Center. It was always such a joy to see her smiling face at the window, especially if I was having a bad day. She was one of my favorites and will be sadly missed. Keep her smile in your heart forever Ron.
