TEXAS — SAM – Mary Lou (Mills), 80, former Windber resident, went to be with the Lord Oct. 26, 2013. She followed Carl, her beloved husband of 56 years, to heaven by almost exactly one year. After his death, she moved to Texas (but her heart never left Windber). She passed away peacefully of natural causes. Born May 30, 1933, to Edward and Josephine Mills, Mary Lou was a modern working woman. She dreamed of a fashion-designing career in New York, but that legacy will be left to her granddaughter. Instead, Mary Lou received a business degree and worked various roles at Windber Bank and Trust, Hertz, Dewar’s car dealership and First Presbyterian Church. Mary Lou was devoted to volunteering, serving as president of her local Business and Professional Women’s Foundation, Class of 1951 Reunion Committee, Cambria- Somerset Junior Miss, First Presbyterian Church and Windber Fire Company ladies auxiliary. Survived by her son, Mark, and his wife, Becky, and their children, Domenique and Mark Jr., Bellaire, Texas; her daughter, Michelle (Sam) Gruessing, and husband, Joe, and their children, Emily and SarahGrace, Leesburg, Va.; and her sister, Sandi (Mills) Chapasko, and husband, Mike, and their children, Jodi Hitt and Tania Ward, and their families. In addition, the Minier family and several lifelong friends miss her dearly. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to First Presbyterian Church in Windber. A memorial service will be held for Mary Lou and Carl at 1 p.m. Jan. 11, at First Presbyterian Church, 1100 Somerset Ave., Windber.
