Mary Lou Alabiso, “Louie” (nee Henderson), born in Buffalo, NY on December 26, 1944, tragically left this planet on July 22, 2010 surrounded by family after short battle with cancer. Mary Lou was devoted to her career, working with special needs children as a nurse in the last fifteen years at Niagara BOCES and Niagara Wheatfield and with the Tuscarora children. Mary Lou was passionate about travel and photography. She was kind and giving and never met an animal of any shape or size she did not love.

Mary Lou lived with cancer without knowing it for several years. Her untimely passing should serve as a lesson that you should never take for granted the people you have, for one day they could be gone.
