After graduating from Elkland High School, she graduated from the Rochester Business Institute in Rochester, N. Y., with the class of 1946. Mary Lou secured a position at Mansfield College (now Mansfield University) where she was courted by her soon to be husband Philip H. Kuhl of Lawrenceville.

She joined other members of her family in dedicated involvement with Jenkintown Music Theatre, assisting with the props department for over 30 years. A lover of bridge, she kept active with her neighborhood bridge club up to the time of her death. From the family home in Jenkintown, Mary Lou moved to Rydal Park in 2007 where she made new friends while staying active with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
