After the family moved to Connecticut, Mary Lou worked outside the home in the late 50’s and 60’s in various clerical positions. In her “retirement” years, she was a receptionist at Governors House in Simsbury. Her greatest joy was in caring for her family and enjoying her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She shared her love of sewing, handcrafts, baking and reading and loved playing board games and cards with them. Most Saturdays she could be found scouring the tag sales for a great bargain. Mary Lou will be deeply missed by her family and many friends. A special thank-you to the staff of Governors House and the Farmington Valley VNA, who cared for her in her time of need. No calling hours. Memorial services will be at the convenience of the family. Vincent Funeral Home of Simsbury is caring for the arrangements.
