Mary Lou Irwin (nee Milliron) age 89, entered into rest on Wednesday March 28, 2018. 
She is survived by her children, Dr. Mark Irwin PhD. of Los Angeles, California, Vicki Brusky Washka and Kelly Kordeleski of Amherst, Ohio; grandchildren, Nick Brusky of Washington DC, Zack, Hanna, and Jacob Kordeleski, Mark Washka, all of Amherst; four great-grandchildren; Bonkers, and her very, very special friend "14 year old Mary Greaney." 
She was preceded in death by her husband, William "Bull" Irwin; her mother and father, Marie and George Milliron; sister, Betty Jean MaCauley; Charlie the Cat and Elvis, Annie, Jordie, and Buttons her furry friends. 
Lou was a selfless, devoted wife, Mom and Grandma. She truly lived her life for others. She loved children of all ages and infected her daughters, Vicki and Kelly, with that same love, as educators and advocates for children.
Her most precious sidekick of the last 16 years was her grandson, Mark. Together they wore out many wheels around town from strollers to wagons and finally Lou's wheelchair. 
Lou had so many friends and especially enjoyed laughing with Lucy Lu and Vicki. If Love alone could keep one alive, Lou would live forever. Lou may not have been in church each Sunday, but she was indeed a Believer. 
Because Lou believed that "giving is having," in lieu of flowers, donations may be left with Misencik Funeral Home on the day of service, or mailed to General Johnnie Wilson Middle School, 2700 Washington Ave., Lorain, Ohio made payable to, and in care of, Counselor Kelley Barnes for financial assistance to help 8th grade students who are having trouble completing the needed funding for their Washington DC field trip this May. 
Friends may say "so long" to Lou on Monday, April 2, 2018 from 11 a.m. until time of service at 12:30 p.m. at the Misencik Funeral Home, 36363 Detroit Rd. Avon. Interment will be private at Ridge Hill Memorial Park, Amherst Township.
