Mary Lou Newburg

Mary Lou Newburg, age 91, of Audubon, PA passed away on Monday, July 19, 2021.

 

She was born in Havertown, Pennsylvania on April 7, 1930, the daughter of the late George and Gladys (Sample) Kurtz.  

 

Mary Lou lived in Havertown and later in the Rosetree section of Media before moving to Shannondell at Valley Forge in 2003, where she was a founder.  She was a member of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church of Audubon and a former member of Wayne Presbyterian Church.    

 

Mary Lou was a talented homemaker who had a particular flair for interior decorating and design.  She received many accolades for her decorating skills at Shannondell and at her previous home in Media.  She was a caretaker at heart who loved to care for her family.  Her heart also went out to animals, and she was always up for a touching story about an animal rescue.

 

She was the wife of the late Judson E. Newburg.

 

She is survived by her daughter, Dr. Cheryl Newburg  (& Dr. Brad Nason) of Montoursville, PA; son, Gary J. Newburg of Newtown Square, PA; sister in-law, Eleanor Kurtz of Rochester, NY.   She was the proud grandmother of Leah Newburg Nason; step grandmother of Amelia Nason; and step great grandmother of Vivian Steinbacher and Clara Steinbacher.  


Along with her husband and parents, Mary Lou was preceded in death by her brother, George Kurtz.
