Mary L. Halsteen passed on September 3rd, 2018 at her care facility in Boise, Idaho at age 90.
Marilou lived a full life of love and kindness that she will be fondly remembered for.
Born in Glendale, California in April of 1928 to James Watkins and Frances Drumm, Marilou will be returned to her state of birth for her final resting place as she becomes reunited with the love of her life, Alfred Halsteen. "My life began when I married Fred", Marilou often said. They enjoyed 63 years of marriage together. Fred preceded her in death, but together they exemplified the strength of marriage and the bonds of love we all aspire to.
She was known for her unfettered kindness and unwavering willingness to help others at a moment's notice. Marilou's giving nature, devotion to family, and strong Catholic faith will remain a beacon of light and hope for those of us who continue to honor her name and unique personal qualities.
She passed on September 3rd, 2018 at Touchmark Care Facility in Meridian, Idaho, and will be memorialized through the congregation of her church, Holy Apostles, on Saturday, September 15th, 2018.
Her grace and beauty will be missed by many as her memory lives on through the hearts and minds of the many she touched in this world.
Funeral services to be held on Saturday, September 15th, at Holy Apostles Church, beginning at 10:00am.
