Mary Lou Peck Obituary
Mystic - Mary Lou (Delaporta) Peck, 66, of Mystic, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018, surrounded by her family and dear friend at home. She had been fighting cancer for over five years.

Mary Lou attended the Saltonstall School, Waterford Schools and then St. Bernard School for high school. Mary Lou graduated from UConn with a degree in fine arts.

Mary Lou taught at NFA, kept books at The Steak Loft, worked in the Mystic Seaport's Art Department and managed at Recycled Paper Products. In 1992, she became the owner and manager of the Adams House Bed & Breakfast and also worked with her childhood friend Charlotte at Thames River Greenery.

In 1990 Mary Lou met Gregory Peck in NYC. They married and raised their daughter Marissa in the Bed & Breakfast.

Mary Lou is survived by three sisters, Donna Perry, Debbie Delaporta and Franny Sission, and their children and grandchildren.

We thank Center for Hospice Care Southeastern Connecticut for their compassion and devotion to our family in Mary Lou's final weeks of life.

We are grateful for all of the love and wonderful food Mary Lou brought to our lives. Her cooking and wise words of advice will be missed but also will live through all with whom she shared her gifts.
