Mary Lou Kuehn ~ Class of 1967

Mary Lou Kuehn ~ Class of 1967

Departed ~ 7/25/2021

More sad news….I had an email from Kathryn Kuehn O’Leary ’68 that her sister, Mary Lou Kuehn ’67 (and my very close friend senior year at ISB)passed away last Sunday, July 25, 2021.

Kathy wrote: “Mary Lou was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, but we thought she had a good chance of survival. We were pretty shocked when the doctors told us it was time to move her to “comfort care” which was the result of complications from the disease……Rosie (Mary Lou’s daughter) is about to deliver Mary Lou’s first grandchild. It was heart wrenching that Mary Lou did not survive to see this precious little gift that she was so thrilled about and anxiously awaiting.”

I’ve had several email exchanges with Kathy…a memorial service will be held but it may be a while as Rosie settles into motherhood and has a chance to plan the service.

Kathy knows that I’m sharing this news with you.

So very sad to hear about the passing of ISBer Mary Lou Kuehn, Class of 1967, we were friends at ISB in 1967, and we keep in touch after Bangkok, I only have one letter I could find of her life and feelings in 1968, she was a good student, carrying a 3.333 QPA, and for a freshman, that was quite an undertaking by the academic standards then, she had a really cute sense of humor, and we laughed a lot together at ISB, in Bangkok, my condolences to the entire Kuehn family, I had seen Kathy Kuehn at the San Diego reunion, God Bless Mary Lou Kuehn
