While in Long Beach, Jay and Mary Lou became active members of Virginia Country Club, where many of their close friends were also members. Mary Lou loved to play golf with her family and friends until it became too physically taxing. She devoted the last 20 years of her life to her family and friends and had a very special bond with St. Teresa.

  1. Mary Lou was always a woman of faith, a great tribute to her and her family. Her relationship with Therese of Lisieux intrigued me as a young woman and influences me a woman of faith now. I pray her soul rests peacefully with God and am sure her family misses her greatly and continues the Cahtolic faith she held so dear as a daily communicant. God bless all Moorhead family. Sincerely, Valjean Albright.
