Mary Lou McMyler was born in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Charles G. Sr. and Dorothy (nee Heuslein). She passed away peacefully, on April 12, 2022, at the age of 73, with family by her side. She was the cherished sister of the late Charles G. Jr., James, Patricia Fotheringham and John, fond sister-in-law to Geraldine “Geri” (nee Grenwis), treasured aunt and great-aunt. Mary Lou was a long-time resident of Aurora, Ohio and a member of the Church of the Holy Angels. She graduated from Gesu Elementary School in 1963 and from Regina High School in 1967. Mary Lou worked as a mortgage advisor with Key Bank for many years.
After retiring from Key Bank, she stayed busy by working part-time at Heinen’s and volunteering at the animal shelter. Mary Lou found her passion in volunteering with the many dogs at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter. Mary Lou rescued her two dogs (and previous dogs), Bourbon and Daphne, and they were her whole world. Aside from volunteering at the shelter, Mary Lou enjoyed crafting and craft shows, baking, and spending time with family, her dogs, and friends. She was known for her amazing pumpkin roll and pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving. She always had a story to share, especially about growing up with her siblings, with her nieces and nephews.
Mary Lou was a loving, outgoing, intelligent, and extremely compassionate woman. She will be missed by many.
