Remember seeing Mary Lou several reunions ago when she was a U.S. Marshall. Am shocked to go to the sight and see she passed on.  Always too young.  My best wishes to her family although her passing was several years ago. - Brian

There are only a handful of people who come into our world and touch our lives in a dramatic way.  Some are only flickers of light during a life time, while others are consistent glows throughout the years.  Mary Lou was a consistent glow--a consistent figure who exemplified commitment, loyalty, and devotion to those around her.

A private soul, she exuded excellence in her work with dedication, courage, & honor.  She served our country as a LTC in the US Army and Sr Inspector with the US Marshals Service. Her accolades quiet, she touched many in her life's path with her adept presence and solidarity.

Mary Lou attended ZHS in 1976, 1977, and graduated early in 1978.  She excelled in academics and surrounded those who knew her with her mirthful personality & athleticism.  She spoke hearty of her classmates & reunions past.

May 14, 2006 marked a doleful, tragic loss.  We wait & hope the day justice is served---'in due time, in due time...' she would affirm.

She graced our lives in more ways than one can convey.  Her presence is dearly missed and we feel privileged to have been part of her life's journey.  She will forever be in our hearts.  Placed on Earth to bloom in Heaven...

I still can't accept that Mary Lou is gone.... Even in High School she was so Extra Special, smart, funny and mastered so many things but made all she did seem so easy..... she was a can do person without ever putting someone down or standing on their shoulders to get ahead.  I Pray for your Mary Lou, I thank you and will always keep your daughter in my Prayers!

Mary Lou, you sweet soul.

I've just learned of your passing  - my heart aches for your family.

Always, I will remember you as a sweet and caring soul, gentle, fuuuunnny!, easy-going, patient and atttentive.

I'll find the only photo I have of you and share her for everyone to see your smile.

I just can't fathom this news.

I'm at a loss for words.

My forever prayers for your family, Mary Lou...I know you are being well taken care of.

Love, Love,
