Mary Lou Scott, 82 of Bridgeport passed away on Sunday, January 21, 2024 surrounded by her family.
Visitation will be held Thursday, January 25, 2024 from 4:00PM to 7:00PM at Traub Funeral Home in Bridgeport, with a service at 7:00PM.
Mary Lou was born in Syracuse, to the late John and Veronica Cisternino on November 11, 1941. She married Ronald R. Scott on September 18, 1964 and the two spent 48 years together raising their family and building their lives.
Ron and Mary Lou were avid members in their community. They belonged to the Bridgeport VFW and the American Legion in Cicero. Mary Lou belonged to the Bridgeport United Methodist Church, served as an Officer in the VFW Ladies Auxiliary of Bridgeport, and volunteered her time at the Sullivan Free Library.
She could often be found working out, even when she started using oxygen. Dancing and music was another love of hers. Ron and Mary Lou danced together whenever and wherever they got the chance. Mary Lou enjoyed fishing with Ron, and sometimes even caught bigger fish than him.
Mary Lou was always on the go, even after retirement. What started as road trips and camping with her kids later turned into travel with her family all over the world. She went all over the east coast, and visited places like Italy, Canada and Hawaii.
Her family was truly the center of her world. Her homemade meals were always made with love, and Christmas will never be the same without her lasagna, or her italian cookies. Mary Lou put everyone before herself, and in that; taught others the importance of compassion and kindness. She modeled what it means to be a mother, and showed those who she loved what is truly important in life.
Mary Lou is survived by her children; Mary Lou Murphy, Debbie Colunio, Lisa (Mike) Maciejewski, Kim Odell, and Ronald Scott Jr., her grandchildren; Luigi (Melissa) Colunio, and Mike Colunio, as well as several beloved nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her loving husband; Ron, her son; Dan Valerino, and her son in law; Frank Murphy.
