I had the pleasure of knowing Mary Lou when I worked for Community Living in Mt. Forest and will never forget her fun nature and her love of a good joke. She was always ready for a good teasing. Thankful for the memories!

So sorry to hear of Mary Lou's passing... I knew her from my time spent working at Saugeen Valley. She was always happy and the first to joke around. You couldnt help but be full of smiles when with her! She was a happy and kind soul and will be remembered well by all.

While I didn't know Mary Lou well I will always remember her sense of fun when she came to visit Rudy, Alma and the girls. May she rest in peace.

MaryLou was a great friend of my grandmother (Kate Bolen). MaryLou would spend hours at my grandmothers on Main St. in Mount Forest. Mary Lou had a kind and warm heart. I'm sure you are both together now. God bless.

I've known Mary Lou all my life. Sometimes she would come to our house at noon hour. Now she is in the home of the Father.She is in the embrace of the Father, perfect in everyway, never to be forgotten.
