Obituary of Mary Lou Kilinski

Mary Lou Kilinski entered into eternal life on January 22, 2024, with her loving children by her side. Predeceased by her husband, Robert L Kilinski; parents, Charles and Grace Glickert; sister, Judith Watts, and brother, David Glickert. Survived by her daughter, Jennifer Kilinski (Sharon Wheeler), son, Bob (Karyn) Kilinski, son, Eric (Lisa) Kilinski, and daugher, Mary (Kyle) Korndoerfer; several grand children, Ainsley & Tyler Korndoerfer, Nadia & Ian Kilinski, Brayden & Ashlyn Kilinski; her nieces, Wendy (Emil) Scalfaro, and their children, Grace & Ben, Marilyn Kilinski, and nephews, Matthew (Bonnie) Watts, Derek Watts, Barry Kilinski, Bart Kilinski, and Mark Kilinski. 

   Born on August 19th, 1943, she was the daughter of Charles & Grace Glickert.  Mary Lou worked and met her loving husband, Robert Kilinski, at Xerox. They married on November 11th and shortly after took on the role as a loving mother.

   Mary Lou & Robert loved travelin. They were lucky enough to have visited Hawaii, Korea, many islands in the Caribbean, and Alaska together. In 1989 they took their whole family on a trip out west to visit to California, Nevada, Mexico, and Arizona.  

They became snow birds in 1999 when they purchased a condo in Boynton Beach, Florida. There they spent many “winters” together enjoying the sun and beach and playing bocce with their friends.   

One of her favorite things was to open her home and be the ultimate hostess when it came to parties, whether it be Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Memorial Day, or her children's and grandchildren’s birthday parties - you always knew that everything was going to be perfect.  

 She was surrounded by friends her entire life. She was involved in many organizations such as The Stock Club, Polish/American Club, a member of the family & friends Folk Group at St. Joseph’s Parish in Penfield, and also took on the role as a den mother for Bob and Eric's cub scout pack. 

  She thoroughly enjoyed her role as a grandmother to her six grandchildren and multiple fur-grandkids, whether it was baking cookies around Christmas, hosting sleep-overs, and finding almost any opportunity to spoil the grandchildren, like any grandparent is entitled to do.

In her final hours, she rallied and was able to say her final good byes to her children and grandchildren. She told jokes, listened to music, and even sang a song to her grandchildren. She was loved by all and will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be held on Sunday, January 28 from 1-4 p.m. at Jennings, Nulton & Mattle Funeral Home, 1704 Penfield Road.  Mary Lou's Memorial Mass will be held Monday, January 29 at 11:15 a.m., Church of the Assumption, 20 East Avenue, Fairport.
