Marylou Alejandro

August 26, 1947 — October 19, 2023

   Mary Louise Alejandro (Marylou), 76, of Wamego, Kansas, passed away on Thursday (October 19, 2023) at her home in Wamego.

   Born August 26, 1947 in Renton, Washington, Marylou was the daughter of Douglas and Elizabeth (Callus) Harris.

   Marylou was a member of the Baha’i Faith. She grew up in Seattle and moved to Estes Park where she lived for over three decades.  She loved the beauty of the mountains. But most importantly, the strong bonds she formed there. Estes Park allowed her a second chance to live a happier, healthier life. She enjoyed being with her AA women’s group of friends and the Baha'i community there.  After she retired  she moved to Wamego, here she had a second chance to reconnect with her daughter. Marylou loved her family and her pets and will be remembered as one who was happy and full of love. She had the unique gift of being at peace where ever she was.

   She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and had worked in social work teaching others life skills. She had also been employed at Boeing, sold her sister Kristin's jewelry at the Pike Place market in Seattle, Harmony Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center, Rocky Mountain YMCA and then as a clerk with Sgt. Pepper’s Music Store in Estes Park until her retirement.

   Survivors include her daughter, Shami McQuay (Tyler Currie) of Wamego; two brothers, Bill Harris and Doug Harris (Tutka); two sisters, Kristin Wilson and Dadene Street; nephews, Rainn Wilson, Will Harris, Dee Harris; and nieces, Erika street, Crystal Harris, and Mercedes Harris                

   Marylou was preceded in death by her parents.

   Services will be private.

   Memorial donations are suggested to The Herren Project.  The Herren Project is an addiction recovery and prevention nonprofit that gives the less fortunate access to recovery and hope.  Marylou's life was forever changed by a scholarship to the Harmony Rehab center in Estes Park and would like to pay that forward to another soul. 

   Donations may be left with Campanella & Stewart Funeral Home, P. O. Box 48, Wamego, KS 66547
