Mary Louise Krauza, 80, passed away July 25 at San Simeon by the Sound in Greenport.

Mary Lou was a kindergarten teacher at P.S. 58 in Brooklyn for three years, and then a kindergarten teacher for 27 years and retired from the Rocky Point School District. Family members said she was loved by all her students, read many books, played the piano, sang and taught them many songs. Mary Lou was also an avid reader and did The New York Times crossword.

Predeceased by baby Peter Christopher, she is survived by her husband of 61 years, Matthew; sister, Elizabeth Hogan; son Stephen (Lynne) and daughter, Elizabeth (Richard) Morgan; grandchildren, Amy (Sean) Burke, Matthew Krauza, and Elizabeth and Caroline Morgan; and great-granddaughter, Amelia Burke.

A private Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. John the Baptist R.C. Church in Wading River on July 27. Interment, next to Peter, was at Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn. A memorial Mass, originally scheduled for Sept. 22, has been postponed due to illness and will be rescheduled at a future time.

Arrangements were in the care of Alexander Rothwell Funeral Home in Wading River.
