Mary Lou Logan, 89, a long-time resident of Wilton, Connecticut, passed away peacefully on August 13th, 2014 in Santa Cruz, California. She recently moved to California to live there with her son Cameron and her beloved dog Lizzie, to enjoy the beautiful ocean breezes and sunny atmosphere, while also escaping the eastern winters.
Born on July 26, 1925 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Mary Lou grew up in a military-style environment. Her father, L. Henry Gork, served in the European war and later worked as a Lt. Inspector General on General MacArthur’s staff in the Pacific war. Mary Lou’s mother, Arla was instrumental in exposing her to many different cultural experiences. Growing up in a very disciplined fashion also helped to develop Mary Lou’s life-long determination in everything she set out to accomplish.
