She was a totally cool person to have as an aunt growing up. But I especially remember getting to know her even better as an adult during the years she lived in Houston. Many good times when she and Ted would visit San Antonio.
We were all blessed to have this quick witted, good hearted woman as part of our lives.

We will miss our Aunt Mary Lou, a thoroughly pragmatic person, fun to be around, a loving wife and mother, quiet but insightful sense of humor, one who handled all of life’s troubles with great spirit. Rest In Peace, Aunt Mary Lou. Peg Langen.

Mary Lou was a dedicated friend to my mother, Marian, and my Lutheran church god mother. She was a strong independent woman who raised three awesome daughters. I will always remember her strength and humor. Mimi
