Mary Lou is survived by her brothers and sisters, Dennis Landsee of Lowell, Marilyn (Andy) Woudenberg of Sun Prairie, James (Susan) Landsee of Milwaukee, Jean (Douglas Brisky) Shriver-Brisky of Columbus, Sherri Landsee and Patty Landsee, both of Lowell; many nieces, nehews, other relatives and friends.  She was preceded in death by her parents; two infant sisters; and a brother-in-law, Ron Shriver.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to Cindy Heitzberg and Amber Gilbert of Ashley’s Home for their wonderful care of Mary Lou; they would also like to thank Kathy Bronner and Elaine Anderson, and the other staff at Hillside Home Care/Hospice, as well as Dr. Amy Muchow and Chaplain Dennis Richards for their care and support.
