Mary Lou Fenner Pildner, 79, of Pierpont Ohio, formerly a long time Erie County resident, died peacefully at home surrounded by family on Friday, November 20, 2009. She was the beloved wife of Edward N. Pildner for 59 years. Also surviving are her children, Katheryn Frye of Pierpont, Ohio, Dianne (Gerald) MacAdam of East Springfield, Pa., Larry (Deborah) Pildner of Girard, Pa., Carolyn (Mike) Sutton of Pensacola, Fla., and Dale (Boo) Pildner of Pierpont, Ohio. She left behind 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; sisters, Betty Page of Erie, Pa., Lynetta (John) Pildner of Ashtabula, Ohio; and brother, Charles Fenner, of Erie, Pa., as well as many nieces and nephews. Mary Lou was a graduate of Academy High School in Erie, Pa., and enjoyed gardening, and in her later years, bird watching. She worked secularly when needed, but was best known as a loving, devoted mother and wife. It was that same love and devotion that defined her for 38 years as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Most of all she valued sharing Bible truths with others, joyfully fulfilling Jesus' words found at Matt. 28: 19, 20.
