So sorry to hear of Mary Lou’s passing. I taught with her at Oakview. She was a teacher from the heart and blessed so many kids. I am blessed to have known her.

"Like a bird singing in the rain, grateful memories survive in this time of sorrow." Robert Louis Stevenson. So grateful to have learned, worked and laughed with Mary Lou. She inspired so many children to love to learn ( my son for one of many). Mary Lou inspired friends with her love of nature, to appreciate a pretty vintage plate and a handmade doily. Mary Lou, thank you for your kindness and friendship.

I am so sad to hear of Mary Lou's passing. We taught at Oakview Elementary School together. She was truly a wonderful soul and an excellent teacher. We had many good times together and I will always remember her sparkling eyes when she smiled! Sending my Deepest sympathy to you Jerry.

Fred & I give your our deepest sympathy at Mary Lou's passing. I worked with her at Oakview. She was not only a wonderful teacher, but also a wonderful lady. I am so glad to have known her. We often talked about vintage glassware and I will think of her when using the pieces she gave me. May your memories with her be a comfort and blessing in days to come.
