A lifelong Western New York native, Mary Lou spent her life in service to others. As a RN, her work included Mount St. Mary's Hospital, Stella Niagara and the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. She was a cherished member of the Lewiston Service Guild, Beta Sigma Phi, a Girl Scout leader and a volunteer with HART. In life, she enjoyed sailing, crafting, baking and being with family.

Winslow; and her children: Damien (Nancy) Schultz (Cheyenne, Wyoming) Mary Beth Tuttle (Middleburg, Virginia) and Dr. Michael Tuttle (Clarksville, Tennessee). Mary Lou was the proud “grand-mama” of 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Her service continues beyond this life with the Jacobs School of Medicine at the University at Buffalo.
