Not sure what to say?

You will be missed! Love you Grandma

I went to Zion High with her. She was always so cheerful and nice. I remember once when we were 14, some of the girls talked her into letting me cut her hair. Big mistake, but she didn't get mad. I only saw her once after High at the grocery store maybe 15 years ago and she recognized me. She was just as friendly as always. I am sad that she is gone.

I wrote this last night but it didn't show up so I will do it again.
I use to run into the grocery store to see if she was working, just to talk to Mary Lou and catch up with her. We ran into each other all over town and she always acted like we hadn't seen each other in years. So alive and fun all the time. She will be so missed.

Mary Lou was like a sister to me all thru school. I moved to TX. years ago, but whenever I got a chance to visit Illinois, I would look her up, and it was just like old times, like we were never apart. she was a doll, so energetic...wonderful person. Carolyn (sexton)Ellisor, Conroe, Tx.

So sorry for the loss of your wonderful mother. I always loved Mary Lou. She lived with us for awhile in Zion, when she was in her teens. She was so much fun. She was like a sister to me and my sisters. I will miss seeing her very much. I can find comfort in knowing I will see her again in Heaven someday. We will dance and sing together.

To the O'Reilly family - I am so saddened by this news. My prayers to everyone as you go through this difficult time. Marylou was a classy lady!

I went to ZBTHS with Mary Lou. I just want to send my sympathies to you at this time and to let you know that you are in my prayers. I know how much you will miss her, but remember all the good times.
May G9od surround you with His peace.

Mary Lou ... have a gentle journey home to be in the hands of the Lord'll be doing the polka up there as well for your family I pray for their strength to carry on in this sad time prayers are with you all .. Mary Lou was a very outgoing fun person ... and she will be missed by all those that loved her dearly in peace!!! Lisa
