BALA CYNWYD, Pa.—Services will be held here on Wednesday, June 25 in memory of Mary Lou Maguire, 61, a long-term sales executive with Essilor, who passed away after a brief illness on June 16, 2014.

An Essilor employee for 26 years, Maguire was well known among colleagues and eyecare professionals throughout the optical industry, particularly in the spectacle lens business.

She was a President’s Club honoree several years over the course of her career.

Bob Colucci, president of IDD, Essilor of America, said, “We are deeply saddened about the loss of Mary Lou. She joined Essilor in 1988 and had an immediate impact our business and her accounts. Mary Lou had been a valued contributor for so many years and won our highest sales honor, President's Club, multiple times. She was one of the most respected and well liked individuals not only within Essilor but within the optical industry. Her passion for helping her accounts and her coworkers is unmatched. We will miss her knowledge, compassion and dedication but most of all we will miss her as a friend.”

Maguire is survived by her sisters Nancy (Donald) Lawler, Pam (Kevin) Kilroy, Tina (Dan) Holmsten, and was the aunt to five nephews, five nieces and seven great-nieces.
