It was an honor for me to visit Marilou each Sunday after she took up residence at The Bloom. The biggest part of her life was serving Lakewood United Methodist Church in many capacities and her memory will live on. Bless you, Marilou, your soul is now with family and loved ones who have passed. No more worries. My blessings to her surviving siblings.

Miss Marilou, as my sons called her, was always a fixture in the Sunday school wing and during VBS at LUMC.

She will be so very much missed, but the strong memories we have of her and her mom will always remind us of good times had with her.
