She and Rodney had moved to Utah in September of 2020.\n\nMary Lou was the daughter of Louisa Jane Gifford and George M. Schelff. She was born in Woodville, Idaho. She spent most of her adolescent years in her home on Lake St. Clair in Lacey, Washington. She began taking piano lessons in the 1st grade and loved music. After a few years, she and her best friend started playing and leading the music in Sunday School. When she was 12 years old, she was called as the Sunday School organist and played on a pump organ. She commented, “It was tricky to pump and play at the same time – keeping it from rolling away from me.” \n\nAfter graduating high school, she attended Brigham Young University for 2 years. Needing additional funds, she returned home and got a job at Fort Lewis as a secretary in the transportation department. She was dating Rodney’s former missionary companion who introduced him to Mary Lou. One day Rodney went to her desk in his best uniform, with white gloves and all, to surprise her with a donut which was the beginning of their relationship.\n\nRodney and Mary Lou were married in the Salt Lake Temple in May of 1955 and spent the next 4 years at Brigham Young University where Rodney graduated and was offered a job with Boeing in Renton, Washington. Mary Lou was very glad to be moving closer to home. \n\nRodney and Mary Lou purchased their Renton home in 1958 where they raised their family. Lifelong friendships were created which blessed their lives. Mary Lou continued using her musical talents by playing the organ and singing.\n\nMary Lou returned to work at Boeing after her children were raised. She and Rodney joined the Boeing Travel club and traveled all over the world. She volunteered for the USO at the SeaTac Airport for many years.\n\nMary Lou is survived by her four children: LuAnn Hunzeker (Don) Twin Falls, Idaho; Renee Bair (Dave) Spanish Fork, Utah; Juleen Call (Don) Wofford Heights, California; and R. Stephen Call (Donna) Snohomish, Washington; as well as 13 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, her parents, one sibling, one granddaughter, and one grandson. \n\nA family celebration of Mary Lou’s life will be held Wednesday, March 31, at Nelson Family Mortuary in Provo, Utah at 2:00 p.m. She will be laid to rest with Rodney at the Bountiful Memorial Park Cemetery.
