Mary Lou was born on December 10, 1943 in Melrose to Edwin and Levina (Moening) Thull. She grew up on the family farm with her two brothers and spent a lot of time with her cousins. After high school, Mary Lou married Martin John Dinndorf and together they raised two children in Albany. She had a sweet disposition and a positive outlook. Mary Lou seldom complained and gave selflessly to others. She enjoyed line dancing, playing cards, and was a big Twins fan. Mary Lou was known for her baking, especially her french silk pies and spritz cookies. She loved being a part of the Monthly Dinner Group and traveling with her "cruzin' buddies" Becky, Jeanette, and Rosie, and her family. Mary Lou spent her career as a legal assistant at Meyer, Meyer, and Pottratz in Melrose before retiring in 2006.
Mary Lou is survived by her children Dean (Dana) Dinndorf, Welch; Gina (Greg) Pfeifer, Andover; her brothers Leroy (Dorothy) Thull, St. Cloud; Melvin Thull, St. Cloud; her grandchildren Kelsey, Alex, Kayleen, Jackson, and Emma; her in-laws Marilyn (Marty) Ritter, Joanne (Greg) Johnson, David (Darlene) Dinndorf, Ann Marie (Wayne) Spanier; her nieces, nephews, and many friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband Martin in 1987; her parents Edwin and Levina Thull; and an infant granddaughter Katelyn Pfeifer.
