Mary Lou (Skripko) PineNovember 5, 1939 ~ April 14, 2017 (age 77)
Mary Lou Pine, fondly called Gramma Lou by many who loved her, has been called home after a life spent on Earth helping, loving and caring for others. Family was first and foremost and she celebrated and decorated for every holiday--especially Halloween--with enthusiasm and style. She looked forward to playing cards with her friends, Diane, Eileen and Jan. She leaves behind a loving spouse of nearly 59 years, Walter, and two devoted sons and daughters-in-law, Kenny (Jeanette) and Michael (Winnie), who loved and admired her. She also leaves behind five grandchildren, Lana (Peter) Dykes, Nichole Pine, Kenny Pine, Jacqueline Pine and Michelle Pine, and two great grandchildren, Jack and Juliette Dykes. She was predeceased by her father and mother, Joseph and Helen Skripko, and two brothers, Joseph and John Skripko. She is survived by a brother, James Skripko, sisters-in-law Mary Ann Skripko, Barbara Skripko and Ruth Skripko, Charlotte Perelka and Janice Bolton as well as many loving nieces and nephews. A Memorial Mass to celebrate her life will be held on Wednesday, April 19 at 10:30am at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Piscataway, NJ.
