To the North Family,
I will deeply miss Mary Lou. I wasn’t around as kid, but she welcomed me as distant family. I only wish I visited her more often. She was always kind and welcoming, jovial and smiling, pleasant to be around. Although she was short, she will always hold a special place in my heart and I will miss her.
Love you Mary Lou, Rest In Peace with Dave.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

She was like my second mom growing up in Keego! She graduated from Roosevelt with my dad and they enjoyed talking to each other on the phone. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She will be missed but remembered fondly by all who knew her. She is in gods hands. Rest In Peace “Mom”!
