Mary Lou Battaglia
June 25, 1936 – November 20, 2022
Mary Lou Battaglia left us on Sunday, November, 20th. Mary was born on June 25, 1936, here in Omaha. She was preceded in death by her parents, Melvin and Madeline Shaffer, and her beloved brother, Bob Shaffer.
Mary is survived by her husband and love of her life, Tony Battaglia; five children: Mike Battaglia, Kathy Allee, Shari Swanson (Carl), Margaret Vacek (Andy), and Mark Battaglia (Michelle); twenty grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She leaves behind so many friends who remain besties since kindergarten. Three things that best describe Mary: faith, family and friends. She loved spending time with others since talking was her favorite thing to do, and she was known as a social butterfly. She could often be found in the kitchen with family and friends, and at grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s sporting events. But most of all, Mary was a natural caregiver and always put others before and made sure everyone was taken care of. She will remain in our hearts forever and ever.
