    To Mary Lou’s family,
    It’s hard to find words to express all that Mary Lou was. She dedicated her life to her family, friends, her faith and the community. We shared joy, laughter and even tears. She touched so many parts of my life. My memories of her are endless. She was truly a gift and blessing!
    With heartfelt prayers,
    Nancy Henson Schroeder

    I will fondly remember working for “Lady Lou.” She called me her personal assistant and I called her my therapist. Twice a week for two years I went to help her, but I think she helped me more than I helped her. She genuinely cared about people and she was loved by many. I am so sorry for your loss…she will be missed. She told me she loved to dance and I think she’s doing the fox trot up in Heaven right now. With my sincere sympathy, Marlene
