Mary Lou Addy

February 15, 1936March 26, 2013

Mary Lou Addy, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, 77, of Silverdale passed away quietly on March 26, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born February 15, 1936 in Fargo, North Dakota and grew up in McMillan, Washington. Mary Lou graduated from Sumner High School in 1954 and later in her life, went back to Olympic College in Bremerton to expand her education and horizons.

Mary Lou met her future husband Tom Addy at a church social and they were married August 28, 1954 in Tacoma, Washington. Tom was accepted into the apprenticeship program at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton so they moved from Tacoma to start their married life and family.

Her passion for knowledge and dedication to excellence served her well in her working career. In her lifetime she went from a Bank Teller to Chairing the Board of Directors at the Kitsap Credit Union. She also had many co-workers and friends in the local automobile industry and they all knew that they could count on her for anything. Mary Lou's quick wit and work ethic were well known among her constituents.

She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Order of the Eastern Star, being a past Grand Representative to Bolivia, past Worthy Matron of her chapter and most recently a Rainbow Mother. She belonged to Beta Sigma Phi and Credit Professionals International, serving as a past international president. There are many more honors and accolades that Mom had bestowed upon her but, sadly, you don't think to write them all down when you are attending the functions or hearing about them. You do, however, have all the memories of those times when we were there to support and celebrate with her.

Mary Lou is survived by her husband, Tom; children, Jeannie (Ron) Easley, Rich Addy, Russ (Kim) Addy, and Todd (Chrissy) Addy; 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Her family meant everything to her and she was one ferocious Mother Bear. If it was within her power to give, she gave unconditionally.

Funeral services will be held at the LDS Church at 9256 Nels Nelson Road in Silverdale at noon on April 13, with a viewing at 10:30 a.m. Interment will be at 2 p.m. at Miller-Woodlawn Memorial Park following the service.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Harrison Hospitals, Harborview medical Center, and all the kind, caring and compassionate professionals that helped care for our mother during her illness.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Mary Lou's name to the cancer research center of your choosing.

Tom and Family,
It is with great sorrow I hear of your loss. My contact with Mary Lou began when I joined CPI. Mary Lou was such a strong supporter of CPI and for those of us who were members. We have lost a guiding light but her legacy will continue to guide us.

Tom and family. It is so hard to say goodbye to such a dear and special friend, who gave me much joy and laughter and fun times in all our travels. There was so much more to Mary Lou than a lot of people got to see, and I am so thankful to have been a part of that special part of her life. She was a very unique and talented woman, who gave her more than 100% in all she committed to. May she rest in peace and may you know that she was loved by many. I will miss her also.

Tom and family,
You are in our prayers and we rejoice that we will see Mary Lou one day again, she is made whole again! She was a classic, a beauty and a great friend. She encouraged me to become District 10 President for Credit Professionals International and she will be deeply missed. May God wrap his loving arms around you today and make His presence known to all of you.

Tom and family, I am saddened to hear of Mary Lou's death and my prayers are with you all during this difficult time. So many of us are friends through CPI and the friendships are special and lifelong. Our annual conference in Silverdale will be my strong memories of how much she loved having us there and the wonderful conference planning with attention to every detail. It was typical Mary Lou! May God hold you in the palm of His hand until we meet again.
