I have fond memories of Mary Lou, particularly her smile, calm attitude and grace dealing with the academics surrounding her and Dan. As a PhD student at Purdue, I enjoyed her hospitality, and then interacting with her during her editorial work at SMJ. Her passion to the Strategic Management community was inspiring. My thoughts are with Dan and their daughters.
I will always remember Mary Lou's genuine friendliness throughout my career. From the first time I met her as a very new assistant professor she was a smiling presence at the SMS conferences and events and made me feel welcome. Mary Lou had the unique ability to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Her wonderfully pleasant attitude certainly made me smile every time I saw her. Mary Lou was one of a kind.
My thoughts are with you Dan.
My deepest sympathy to Dan and his family. Mary Lou was a wonderful and caring lady, always cheerful, encouraging, and helpful. She will be missed by everyone that knew her, especially the strategic management community.
Deepest sympathy to Dan and the girls. Mary Lou had an angelic presence that made you want to smile.
I am honored that Mary Lou was my Aunt and Godmother. She shared so much interest, enthusiasm, support, and encouragement for both me and my husband and whatever adventure we were embarking upon. Russ and I will remember her with such fondness and admiration. Love and blessings to Uncle Dan and family.
