Mary Lou lived most of her adult life in Council Bluffs, IA. She was actively involved in volunteering in the community, attending and volunteering at St. Patrick’s Church, hospital auxiliary, and garden club. Mary Lou loved reading, traveling, gardening, crafting and cooking. What truly gave her joy was spending time with family. Many traditions were made over the years including baking and frosting cookies, hunting for seashells on the beach and attending many sporting events, plays and recitals.

Anyone who knew her would agree that she had the most loving, generous and thoughtful heart imaginable.
