Mary Lou was born to Edmund & Martha (Bergstedt) Meyer on September 10, 1939 in Toledo and went to be with The Lord on Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Mary attended Scott High School and The Salvation Army and then was a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church for the last 31 years.
She met the love of her life, LeRoy Mitchell while working as usher & usherette at The Valentine Theater and they married on March 28, 1959. Together they had two children, Lisa and Edward. Lee preceded her in death in 1992 and Eddie in 2017.
Mary Lou was a volunteer throughout her lifetime. Some of the many ways were drama coach, camp counselor, den mother, and Sunday school teacher, to name just a few. She worked for Hilebrand Electronics (Muzak), Dr. Robert Julius, Frische Mullen, Partners in Home Health Care, Dr. Thomas Goodin and when she retired she provided childcare in her home… definitely her favorite job of all.
Mary cherished the time she spent with family, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed hosting gatherings, sharing the pool, playing cards and scrabble, sewing, camping, bowling, traveling, and scrapbooking. She was well known for her baking talent.
