Mary Lou Buddenhagen of Long Eddy, a retired receptionist died Tuesday September 3, 2019 at CRMC Callicoon. She was 75. Daughter of the late George and Frances Long Buddenhagen, Mary Lou was born May 18, 1944 in Callicoon.
Mary Lou could be blunt at times, and unfiltered when it came to her opinions. She had a heart of gold and showed everyone that she cared through her many posts on Facebook. She was a very proud grandmother and never hesitated to let them know it. She had numerous jobs over her lifetime which included many years working in the hotel industry. Mary Lou always had a great love for animals since she was a little girl and never turned a stray away. If she had any wish, she would love for all of them to have a loving caring home.
