GROVELAND - Mary L. (Cote) George, 81, cherished wife of Anthony F. George of Groveland passed away peacefully on January 12, 2017 surrounded by her family.

She is survived by her sisters Dorothy (Cote) Ippolitto; Irene (Cote) Tucci; Barbara (Cote) Quintal and brother Carl L. Cote and wife Doris.

Her surviving children are Lisa (George) and husband Jerry Younts, Lori (George) Caron, Anthony and wife Shannon George, Daniel and wife D'Ann George, and Paula (George) and husband Leonard Dube. She was predeceased by her son in-law William A. Caron.
Her legacy of love lives on through her 11 grandchildren whom she loved unconditionally. They were the sparkle in her eye and brought her incredible joy. Nanie's loves are Justin and Jake Younts, Rob and Matthew Caron, Emily and Colleen George, Ellie and Renee George, Olivia, Emily and Abigail Dube.
Marylou was a devoted Catholic with tremendous faith. She was a member of St. James, St. Rita's, St. Patrick's and finally Sacred Hearts Parish. She loved the power of prayer and was often asked to pray for others since everyone knew how strong her faith was.
Marylou spent her early years in Haverhill graduating from St. James High School. During high school at a dance, her life changed forever when she met her beloved Tony. They moved to Groveland where they raised their family and shared a life of love. Marylou worked at various places throughout her life including Western Electric, Internal Revenue Service and Summer Ob-Gyn. Everywhere she went, people loved being with her. She had a natural ability to make everyone around her feel happy.
Marylou had a passion for dancing, especially with Tony. From the moment they met if music was playing she would be dancing. She also loved playing games especially BINGO. She spent many years between Sacred Hearts and the Senior Center playing and win or lose she always had a good game. She also enjoyed to exercise especially her water aerobics classes where she made many friends.
We find peace knowing that she is reunited with her mother whom she loved and find comfort in knowing we have a special angel to help guide us in life.
