In 1961 Mary Lou married Jerome F. Sheehan (Jerry) and eventually settled in Springfield, PA to raise their seven children together. 

Mary Lou was a devoted and loving wife to Jerry for over 60 years. She was a wonderful mother who always enjoyed being surrounded by her large family. She lived a life of service to her Church, her children, and their schools.
