Mary Lou Granata, 89, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 in College Station TX.
Mary Lou was born June 21, 1929 in San Antonio, TX into a first-generation Italian American family. She graduated from Ursuline Academy and worked loyally for over 40 years as a legal secretary in a family owned oil company.
Mary Lou, or Lou-Lou as she was often called by family, was a devout, life-long Catholic Christian who leaves a legacy of faith and unselfish love to be cherished by her sister Norma Biering, nieces Norma Williams (Roger) and Karen Minyard (Bill), godson Chris Petty (Elle), great-nieces Rachel and Kelsey and great-nephews Joe and Chris.
Mary Lou’s great joys were found in family, good friends, good books, Italian operas, and difficult crossword puzzles worked in ink - never pencil.
