MaryLu was born on February 28, 1936 in Steubenville, Ohio to Coramae Wilson and Alfred C. Green. She passed away on  at the age of 86 in Louisville, Colorado.

As a child MaryLu lived in Weirton, West Virginia before moving with her mom, Coramae, and brother, Tom, to St. Petersburg, Florida. She then moved to Wilmington, Delaware where she was married to James Meadows. The couple soon welcomed the first of their two sons, James Jr. The married couple then moved to Kingston, New York where she had her second child Gregory. The family moved from there to Woodstock, New York. In 1971, the family moved to Colorado and during MaryLu?s time in Colorado, they lived in Boulder, Broomfield, and finally Louisville.

MaryLu graduated with honors from the Golden-Beacom School of Business with a degree in Accounting and General Secretarial skills. Throughout her life, she and her husband were involved in various Residential and Commercial real estate ventures. MaryLu managed the operations for various properties in Boulder and Arvada. Aside from her managerial positions in the property management field, she was very active working with volunteer organizations and Senior Citizen programs.

In Colorado she was the RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) volunteer coordinator for 4 years.  She served on the Boulder Council of Aging, Citizens Committee on Housing, and Community Development. She was instrumental in the launch of the VIA Special Transit program which is still operating today.  Some of her accomplishments include being appointed by Governor Dick Lamm to serve on the Colorado Commission on Aging for many years and was Chairman of that Commission for two years.  She was also the first Secretary of the Colorado Gerontological Society.

MaryLu was a great advocate for preserving this nation?s Civil War history as an active participant in the Civil War Trust, which seeks to preserve battlefields and other historical aspects of that period.  She frequently traveled the country to see and support these pieces of our history.  She was also very active in mapping family history and researching Genealogy.  An avid traveler, she had seen many places around the world including Australia, New Zealand, and many times to various places in Europe and the Mediterranean region. She also enjoyed doing needlepoint and was very fond of reading a good book.

MaryLu is survived by her two sons, Jim and Greg Meadows, two daughter in-laws, Jan and Lou Meadows; and three grand-children Madison, Amber, and Mackenzie.

I will always remember her kindness to me! I lived with her in Boulder as a little girl. My mother didn't stay in contact with my aunt after we moved away. I think of her often and found this announcement today. The world lost a very loving woman!! Lori Green Randolph
