Mary Lou Arburua(1935 ~ 2013)

Mary Lou Arburua 1935 ~ 2013 Mary Lou Arburua was born December 21, 1935, in Mesa, AZ, to Clarence B. and Beulah May Dennison. She passed away at her home on February 14, 2013. Mary Lou enjoyed being a homemaker, where she could be involved in her children's school activities, being the best room mom ever and involved in PTA. She was one of the first board members at GBA (Greenfield Baseball Assoc.) and one heck of a softball coach for the girls. She also helped us in 4-H with our lamb projects with a "mean pair of clippers" - those lambs never looked so good. Mary loved working in the yard and in her later years took up woodworking, until her health made her give it up. She also had one of the biggest salt & pepper shaker collections that has grown over the years. Mary Lou was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Dominic M. Arburua. She is survived by her children, Greg and wife, Kara, Josie and husband, Jan, and Cynthia and partner, Lisa; her grandsons, Shaine, Travis, and Christian; and her great-grandsons, Dominic and Gage. A graveside service will be held on Monday, February 25, 2013, at 2:00 p.m., with visitation before the service starting at 12:00 p.m., at Greenlawn Southwest Memorial Park, 2739 Panama Lane.
