Mary Lou was born March 2, 1938, in Superior, Wis., the daughter of Harry and Myrtle Bouchard. In 1956 she graduated from DePadua High School in Ashland and married her high school sweetheart, Larry Hudack, in March of 1957. In 1963, Mary Lou and Larry moved to the Dells where they continued to grow their family. Throughout Mary Lou's life she exemplified the professional role of the homemaker. Her family always came first, and she fulfilled every need. In her spare time, Mary Lou played softball and volleyball but was better known in the community for her passion for bowling, culminating with her induction into the Hall of Fame.
In 2004, Mary Lou started her long journey with multiple myeloma. Beyond the daily treatments, her fight included several clinical trials and new treatments in the hope of helping the greater cause. Mary Lou never complained, and it didn't affect her love for attending any, and all, activities that involved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Mary Lou is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Larry; children, Bob (Cheryl) Hudack, Julie (Fritz) Arendsee Schlender, Kevin (Mary) Hudack and Dale Hudack; siblings, Barbara Galligan and Tom (Marcia) Bouchard; grandchildren, Jason (Emily) Arendsee, Micha (Trisha) Hudack, Jeff Arendsee, Laura (Pat) Salonek, Quinton Hudack and Travis Hudack; and great-grandchildren, Maggie, Hallie, Kielly, Sam, Logan, Ally, Jaxson and Shane; as well as many nieces, nephews and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; and brothers-in-law, Bill Hudack, Pete Galligan, and Lloyd Sellung.
