Mary Lou and Harold were are neighbors for over 45 years and we miss having them next door . I remember when we brought our daughter home from the hospital Mary Lou was on her porch greeting us with well wishes. She was always so full of life and loved her bowling league and all her wonderful friends and family . She was a lovely lady and after Harold passed we both looked after each other. You had a great run MaryLou Rest In Peace
