Mary Lou McGill was born in Philadelphia on October 5, 1933, to Edward Joseph Stafford and Louise [nee Hayden] Stafford. She graduated from Cecelian Academy in Mount Airy where she was a basketball cheerleader. At the same time, she was a talented pianist who played the part of Edvard Gregg in concerts with the Trenton Symphony Orchestra, directed by Giuliano Sabatini, and performed at Town Hall in Center City. Mary Lou graduated from Chestnut Hill College in 1954, majoring in economics. She went on to work for the Western Savings Society in its tax department and soon met Frank McGill. They were married in 1957. She had five sons in the span of eight years: Francis (Esther), Edward (Lisa), Michael (Wade), Matthew (Romy), and Brendan (Jennifer). Frank and Mary Lou raised their sons in the Roxborough/Manayunk and West Mount Airy sections of Philadelphia. Summers were spent in Avalon, New Jersey. Frank and Mary Lou joined the Philadelphia Country Club ("PCC") in 1978, where she remained a member after her loving husband succumbed to a long battle with cancer in 1991. Frank and Mary Lou became daily communicants in 1980 which enriched their relationship with each other and the Lord. They would comment that it was a terrific way to start a day. Following Frank's death, Mary Lou set up a development program for parents and graduates at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy in Chestnut Hill, where her sons had gone to grammar school. After three years, with the job completed, she retired. During retirement, Mary Lou liked playing golf at PCC for many years with the "ladies' nine holers". She also started to travel with friends and spent winters in Jupiter, Florida, which allowed her to play golf year-round and solve crossword puzzles while sitting by the pool. Mary Lou was also on the Woman's Auxiliaries of Saint Edmond's Home for Children and the Saint Francis Home. In addition to her sons and daughters-in-law, she is survived by 11 grandchildren who nicknamed her "Manya". The visitation will be Thursday, December 7, 2023, from 9AM to 11AM followed by the Mass of Christian Burial. Both will be held at St. John Vianney Church, 350 Conshohocken State Road, Gladwyne, Pennsylvania 19035.Show more

Louise Owens

Age - 88

December 4, 2023

was born on March 10, 1935 in Port Salut, Haiti. On November 27, 2023, she passed away peacefully in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania leaving behind a legacy of love, resilience, and togetherness. Louise was born and raised in Port Salut, Haiti by her parents, Theda (Milard) Lifleur and Mathias Lifleur with her siblings Eugene (deceased), Marie Therese and Roger. She lived in Haiti until the age of 19 when she moved to Chester, Pennsylvania. In December 1958, she married Filbert Thomas Owens and lived happily together for 42 years until Filbert's passing in February 2001. Together they raised three daughters: Yvette Estelle, Gabrielle Lifleur and Louisa Marie. Louise worked at John Wanamaker's in Philadelphia for the majority of her career and did so with dedication and commitment, while balancing the responsibilities of family and community. From an early age, Louise developed an appreciation for the bonds of family. Her role as a matriarch extended beyond her immediate family, as she lovingly embraced her role as a sister, grandmother, aunt and friend. Sunday mass and family breakfasts became cherished traditions, echoing her belief that "there was nothing like family. " She continued this legacy by hosting holiday meals and maintaining these gatherings that became the highlight for friends and relatives alike. As a devout Catholic, Louise instilled her values deeply within her children, ensuring they were raised in the faith. She encouraged all to live a prayerful and positive life and to find the silver lining even in the toughest of times. She was also known for her quick wit, as she never failed to bring laughter and sweetness into the lives she touched. Louise's life was not without its challenges, yet her strength never wavered. She and her husband Filbert embodied sacrifice and devotion by bringing family members from Haiti to the United States, thus paving the way for future generations to thrive. This act of love and courage transformed the lives of her family and future generations. This is her legacy. Her life's work, focused on service to others and anchored in faith, leaves an enduring legacy. Her compassion knew no bounds as she cared for the sick, visited and supported the imprisoned, gave generously to those less fortunate, and welcomed family members and friends to live in her home. Her actions were often silent and unnoticed, but she was a guiding light for those in her life. Louise is survived by her three daughters, nine grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, seven great-great grandchildren, two siblings, one sister-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of family and friends. Louise's story at its conclusion is a celebration of the extraordinary life she lived, the impactful legacy she leaves behind, and the countless hearts she warmed. She now rests, reunited with her beloved husband, Filbert, and watched over by the family she loved so dearly. Though she will be profoundly missed, her teachings, love, and the laughter she brought to everyone she met forever remains in our hearts. And so, we say farewell to Louise Owens, our anchor, our inspiration and our love.Show more
