Passed peacefully on November 21, 2017 in her home in Clarksburg with loving family by her side. Mary Louise was born on April 17, 1929 in Hollsopple, PA; the third of four daughters of Frank and Myrtle Barron.
She attended elementary school in Hollsopple, graduating from Conemaugh Township High School. After high school, she worked in Glosser Brothers Department Store in Johnstown, PA. Mary Louise married her high school sweetheart, Eugene Naugle, in June of 1949. They were happily married 68 years, raising two children - Bob and Sally. In 1970, Mary Louise, Gene, and Sally moved to Clarksburg, CA, where Mary Louise served as the Clarksburg Post Office Clerk from 1976 - 1992. Mary Louise was a devoted spouse, mother, and grandmother. Family, friends, and community were very important to her.
