Tributes for

Bosse, MaryLou

MaryLou Bosse

July 16, 1936 – February 21, 2013

Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend

MaryLou passed away peacefully in her home with her husband and children by her side. Her strong faith in God was a shining example throughout her life's journey.

As the second of nine children born to Ed and Louise Klosner, she enjoyed spending time with her brother and sisters in Omaha, Nebraska. Soon after graduating from Sacred Heart High, she married her high school sweetheart Tom and moved to Santa Ana, California.

Their loving marriage spanned 57 years and was filled with church, family and charity activities. They were blessed with 14 children, Peggy Farner (Chuck), Cindy Davenport, MaryAnne Cartaya (Ed), Denise Sawicz (Conrad), Tom Bosse (Karen), David Bosse (Colleen), Lori Soto, Bonnie Garvey (Bill), Patti Whitman (John), Amy Hayden (Nathan), Judi Brennan (Brian), Michael Bosse (Lisa), Matthew Bosse (Joe), and Mark Bosse (Michelle) as well as 33 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

MaryLou and Tom retired and traveled extensively throughout the US and around the world visiting family and friends. MaryLou is remembered as a loving mother and grandmother who loved to bake haystack cookies, Easter breads, and roll-out cookies. Her most enduring legacies are her deep faith and her devotion to her husband and family.

Rosary will be held on Wednesday February 27 at Brown Colonial Mortuary at 7 p.m. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday February 28 at 10 a.m. at St. Norbert Catholic Church in Orange, with a reception to follow immediately in the church hall.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to American Life League, PO Box 1350, Stafford, Virginia 22555-1350
