Mom, I will always miss you. You were such an amazing mother to me and Chelsea! Any time I needed to talk to someone you were always right there. You were move than just a mom to me you were considered my bestfriend, my business partner and much more. We shared so many good memories! We have done so much together I know you'll always be right by my side. I love you so much. Ill never forget this night in the picture above. You, Robert & I went to the Hardrock on one of our spontaneous trips, Chelsea got so mad that we went without her that when she got off work she went and bought a car, we both walked out winners and its just the memories like these that keep me going without you here. God knows best and I know he put you in a much happier place! I will spend time with you in the future but for now ill know your watching over me. Love you always to the "moon & back"

I will miss you every single day Mary. You were always the friend I could run things by - good or bad and not worry about judgement. I am going to miss those talks.
I have always felt welcome around you and your family since the day we became friends. You managed to take on the same welcome atmosphere in your own adult home as your Mom and Dad always had in their home.
I've always admired how strong and confident you were and your entrepreneurial spirit was always there!
You did an amazing job as a mother - that is for sure. Chelsea and Karl John have become amazing adults and I know you are so proud of that. You were also a great example to Melanie, Megan and Fred who loved being around you and your family.
The world has lost an amazing person way too young. I've lost an amazing friend way too soon.

What to say about Mary lakos, what couldn’t you say about Mary she was a amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend to all. She was the most kind, loving person you ever met. She was the life of the party. She could hold a conversation with anyone on about anything,
Mary was one of the most driven intelligent people I ever got the pleasure of knowing. But with all that drive , motivation, and focus on what she wanted. she really knew how to live life to the fullest, she loved her family unconditionally, she loved her dogs , and going out on the boat to the island with friends and family. She loved her grandson Ashton in my opinion probably more than anything else! Lol.
Mary will be missed by so many people and my heart goes out to Chelsea, Karl, karl jr , Kyle , and the family. She will always be in our hearts.

Mary always welcomed everyone into her home with open arms and treated them like family. She was an absolutely hilarious woman, a good friend, a doting mother and grandmother. One of my fondest memories is of the Lakos’ bird, Magpie, mimicking Mary every morning by saying “Chelsea, time to rock and roll!” It was hilarious every single time. She will be SO missed.

Mary was a mother to all of us. She fed us, loved us, and took care of me as af I was her own child. No matter how mad she was at us being woken up to a party downstairs in the middle of the night she still woke up and was happy to see us. She will be greatly missed! Thank you for the great memory’s mama Lakos

Mary made me laugh. First thing I will always think of about my friend Mary is her laugh. And how much we always laughed about everything imaginable! We were great friends all through high school and kept in touch off and on afterward. But no matter how the years passed between our meetings, we could always pick up as though we hadn't missed a beat. And we would laugh again … about shared times remembered, or new stories about our current lives and families. Mary's warmth and love of life was evident always. I'm seeing her in my mind's eye as I write this. Her smile creeping in on the corners of her mouth, then her grin and her bright blue eyes light up and soon she's laughing and you can't help but to join in.
We spent a lot of great times at the house on Edsel during high school years. I still always look that way when I drive past it. I'm sad to never see Mary's bright, beautiful smile again, but more than that, I am truly blessed to have called her Friend for life.

Mary was a lot of things to me, my sister, my friend, my confidante I just can't imagine a world without her in it. I am so happy for the time we had with her and so sad that for now we have lost her. I know we will see her again in heaven. So many memories, my favorite times were the family get togethers. Christmas at Uncle Pete's house, the bowling league, getting the kids together for Mt. Pleasant weekends!
Uncle Karl, Chelsea and Karl John please be good to each other and take care of each other. I know that will make her happy in Heaven. She loved the 3 of you more than anything in the world!

How do you pick just one memory of a person who was much more than a mom to you. You my mom were my best friend, My favorite person in the world, my FaceTime buddy. My favorite memory of you though.. has to be when we were at the lake last summer. When you were swimming with Ashton in his yellow blow up seat and thankfully, I took so many pictures. He loves that picture of you too, he always points to it and screams GA!! I won’t let him forget you. I am so thankfully for all the wonderful times we had. You made such a great life for us. Thank you my mommy!!! See you on the other side ❤️❤️❤️

My deepest condolences to Mary's entire family for their loss. As a longtime friend, we have over 50 years of memories together, and most were filled with family gatherings, years of fun and laughter, and an awesome childhood growing up at Silver Lake. Mary was a joy to be with, a gracious hostess, and always had a smile to share. May your wonderful family memories of Mary bring you peace and comfort. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love you! Patti

Mary was the wife of my husband's coworker. The Lakos family always threw the best "End of the World" parties each summer. Mary was a welcoming a gracious hostess to all who came through her door. I missed you and the family when you moved to Florida, Mary, but knew I'd see you again. I miss you now, but have hope that I'll be seeing you again in Heaven. Cheers!

I'll never forget Mary! She, Karl and her sister Sharon and brother-in-law Jeff were a part of our wedding day in Las Vegas 20 years ago. Mary insisted that I had flowers and bought me a pretty bouquet... I still have part of that saved, it was always special to me. We were celebrating 20 in Vegas over this past weekend, of course all 4 of them were on my mind and I said we should get them all back out here with us for 25! So many memories from parties, bowling nights, trips to Vegas and more that we'll never ever forget. We love you Mary! 😘
There are no words to make Karl, the kids or Mary's mom and sisters feel better, but we are thinking of you all ❤️ Tommy & Jen Collier
