Mary Louise Anderson Gregg, 93, of Aliso Viejo, California, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to all, died on June 20, 2017. She passed away, peacefully, in her daughter and son-in-law’s arms. She was born on August 3, 1923 in Los Angeles, California to Kathleen Shuford and Edward Baker Anderson.
Mary Lou grew up in Los Angeles and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Dietetics from UCLA. She had a distinguished and enjoyable career and worked at UCLA Medical Center and the Beverly Hills Clinic, where she was Dietitian to many Hollywood stars. Mary Lou and her husband, Howard, adopted two girls, and at that time, Mary Lou decided to retire to stay home with her two babies. Retirement did not stop her from being involved in so many things: she was President of the PTA, a Sunday school teacher for her children and volunteered for many different charities. She was very involved in the First Baptist Church of Van Nuys’ Women’s Circle, and worked diligently to help missionaries and their families abroad.
Mary Lou was an avid reader, loved to cook, entertain and travel. She adored birds, her favorite being the hummingbird. She sent greeting cards for all holidays and birthdays to everyone she knew.
She is survived by her daughters, Lori LoCurto, Kathleen MacCleverty, sons-in-law RJ LoCurto and Gary MacCleverty. Her grandchildren are: Jeremy, Casey, Michael, Riley, Andrew, Meghan, Tara, Brendan and Caitlin. Her great-grandchildren are: Mason, Skye, Emma, Serenity and MJ.
Everyone who knew her loved her and her amazing smile. Mary Lou was one of God’s angels, placed on earth.
