I already miss Grandma Mary Lou so much! She was the best grandma ever! I will especially miss our Sunday evening visits. I could talk to her about anything and she always gave her undivided attention. The memories we share are too many to list. I will definitely make some no bake cookies soon in honor of grandma <3

Mom was a very private person and sometimes was very quiet in crowds. I will remember and cherish the times when we were one on one. Mom enjoyed hearing about the Grandkids and Great Grandkids.

Marylou was a wonderful woman she was a very quiet person. But most of all she loved her family her husband her children and her grandchildren were very important to her. She loved old movies and Elvis. It was a tradition for her to place flowers on the graves of all her loved ones every Memorial Day. Never forgetting the importance of remembering them. We would sometimes take her to different cemeteries to do this and she always remembered where to go. It was very important to her. She was a very special lady and mother and will never be forgotten. We all love you Marylou and know that Bruce is their waiting for you with open arms ❤️

As a kid, some of my fondest memories are of playing cards and board games with Grandma Mary Lou. Old Maid, Go Fish, Crazy Eights, you name it! She always let the kids win. I’ll cherish those memories forever!
