Obituary of Mary Lou Nevins
Mary Lou DeVoe (Nevins) Covell passed away February 2, 2022 at Millard Fillmore Suburban. She was born January 24, 1931, the daughter of Lulu (Hart) and Henry DeVoe. She had several different jobs throughout her life but none meant more to her than the role of being a Mom and Nana. She was a foster mother for many years when her children were young, and loved seeing her family grow with grandchildren and great grandchildren as she got older. She also truly loved animals, enjoyed cooking and crafting, and was very creative at both, and she was filled with joy by music, especially classic rock. And she was a diehard fan of her Buffalo Bills.
Mary Lou is survived by her children, Paul (Valorie) Covell, of Burt, Jeffrey (Theresa Piatkowski) Covell of Newfane and Linda Covell Peet of Lockport. Grandmother of Richard (Shaine) Covell, Matthew (Brandi) Covell, Kelly (Scott) Mendola, Bill ( Leanne Hatswell) Roath, Joshua Covell, Carleen Covell and Christopher Covell. She also had seven great grandchildren and 1 great- great grandchild.
Mary Lou was predeceased by her husband, Richard Covell and all of her 11 brothers and sisters, Violet, Fred, Nellie, Henry, Mildred, Georgia, Arthur, Grace, Miles, George, and Ruth.
