Mary Lou was an Air Force wife for 26 years. Her family traveled extensively until they went to Mountain Home AFB in 1958 and she and her husband retired there in 1968. She liked to read, do crossword puzzles and work in her garden. She loved a good bargain and bought more things for her family than she did for herself. She really loved to fish! She was devoted to her family and her husband and was always there for them never letting them down. Mary Lou will always be known as a living legend even though she is no longer with us. She will be deeply missed by her family and all those who knew and appreciated her love and kindness.

No services will be held at her request. Arrangements by Rost Funeral Home, Mountain Home, Idaho.
