Mary Louise (Narlin) Huston
September 14, 1923 - December 27, 2011
Mary Lou Huston, age 88 of Laguna Beach, was born in Minnesota on September 14, 1923 to Sverre and Gladys Narlin. She passed away peacefully in the early hours of December 27, 2011, at home. Mary Lou was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Nancy Noonan, and her daughter, Holly Ott. She is survived by her husband of 67 years Daniel Huston, a World War II decorated Navy veteran, her daughters Haven (Arthur) Tieck and Hilary (Donald) Gorrie, grandchildren Ryan, Taryn and Bryn, and 2 great-granddaughters. Mary Lou and Dan moved with their girls to Laguna Beach in 1960. Mary Lou worked for McCalla Pharmacy from 1964 for approximately 40 years until its closing, and loved every minute with her co-workers and customers. During their retirement, Dan and Mary Lou enjoyed their travels to Europe and then by motor home throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Together with Dan, Mary Lou treasured her many long-time friends and family and she was fiercely proud to still be living in their home on the hill with its spectacular ocean view, which she enjoyed every single day.
The family sends heartfelt thanks to caregiver Ellen Rose and her team, who took such loving care of Mary Lou especially during her difficult final years.
At Mary Lou’s request, no services will be held.
