With profound sadness and a broken heart I mourn the passing of my beloved wife Mary Louise Fortier on Sept. 22, 2019,
just 2 days past our 50th Wedding Anniversary Sept. 20/69 - Sept. 20, 2019.

After a 28 year career at Bell Canada she went on to work as a PSW at Pioneer Ridge up until her passing.
After meeting on a blind date in 1968, it wasn't long after we realized that our love for each other was forever.

Left to mourn our loss is her husband Ron, sons Riley (Melissa) and Darcy as well as her pride and joys her
grandsons Jacob (mother Lisa Kleinsasser), Bryson and Easton. Predeceased by her father, mother and her
only brother.

Lou cherished the friendships of many special people she met over the years.
A celebration of Mama Lou's life will be held Saturday, September 28th at West Thunder Community Centre
from 1- 4 p.m. on South Edward Street.
Donations to the Humane Society in her memory would be appreciated.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Simpler Times Cremation Centre, 332 North May Street, Thunder Bay.

I ran into Mary Lou (Lemay as I remember her) at the Royal Bank late this summer. Hadn’t seen her for eons but I recognized her immediately. We met in grade 7 and hit it off. Our dads sometimes took turns driving us home from school. She had beautiful naturally blonde hair and a sunny disposition to match. I have nothing but fond memories of her. My condolences to her family.

So sorry I couldn't travel to the memorial service. Whenever my wife and I visited my uncle Ron and aunt Lou she always welcomed us and made us feel right at home. We will miss her end of the year letters filled with her dry wit and tell it like it is humor. She truly was one of a kind. RIP Aunt Mary Lou.

It was a pleasure to work with Mama Lou for so many years. She was more than just a co-worker she was an amazing human who always opened her heart to everyone. You will always be part of the pioneer family. ❤️❤️ Jennifer Thomas
