On Tuesday February 12, 2013, Mary Lou Rackers left us to spend eternity in heaven with her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. She passed resting comfortably at home with her daughter and caregiver Connie Burke at her side.

Mary Lou Rackers was born in Durham County, North Carolina on June 24, 1936. Her parents were Aubrey and Lois Cheek. She was raised in Hyattsville, lived her in Adelphi and Beltsville during her early family years. She lived the majority of her adult life in Laurel and her final years in Waldorf.

She is survived by her 3 children: Lynne, Connie, and Mike and 4 grandchildren: Brandon, Chad, Erin, and Thomas.

We all love and will miss her very much and appreciate the overwhelming support of family, friends, church members and co-workers. Many were with her in final days or have reached out to express their condolences and offer support since her passing.

We are grateful for everyone's expression of sympathy and would like to invite all of you to help us celebrate her life.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
II Corinthians 1:3-5
