Susan and family, I am so sorry for your loss! Mary Louise and my mom sat at the same table at Sunrise (I usually sat between them). I so enjoyed listening to her talk and tell stories! She had quite a life!! She was so proud of her family and talked about you all often. It was an honor to know this wonderful lady!! Brooke Lamb (Louanna’s daughter)

I remember so well going over to Aunt Mary Louise's home where she and Uncle Con made us feel quite welcome......and where we got to play with Susan and Cathy. Aunt Mary Louise was quite talented with her hands and made beautiful needle work and was quite good with plants. She was always cheery and bubbly ....... Aunt Mary Louise, you will be missed!
