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

Marvin passed away at 1pm 01/15/21. He was tested twice at the hospital for Covid, and 2nd one was positive. He went to hospital to find out he had a minor stroke, but no bleeding in brain, also was type 2 diabetes, HBP, complete blockage of one aorta, partial blockage in another aorta, had trouble walking long distances which is why he still was working at Dulles Airport USPS Distribution Center 2 wks  before going to hospital why he never retired, he loved the work, and co-workers he worked with, only exercise he got.

Our family appreciates all the prayers, and blessings given.
He appreciated, and loved all his families/relatives, FB friends , and of course all his ISB’er friends, especially 67, 68, 69 & 70.

He went peacefully in his sleep with wife Shin, his son Jonathan, and daughter Stephanie(they all came to the 1990 San Antonio reunion, only one he ever attended) at his side.

God bless, and is resting in peace.

Departed ~ 3/21/2014 ~ Pancreatic Cancer

Dad lost his courageous fight tonight after 2 years, 1 month and 10 days to Pancreatic Cancer. I can not describe in words his bravery, his attitude and his battle. I will never do anything more important in my life than what I have done in the last 6 months–(and the last 25 months) to take care of the best man I have ever known–what an incredible honor!!!!! I’ve never in my life known anyone who loves better than he could!!!! I’m so very thankful God chose him for me!!!!! I am so very fortunate to have had such a loving and wonderful Daddy. I know I will see him again someday and I’m so very thankful he isn’t in pain any more!!!!! Alisha McGaughey

Complications related to Parkinson’s

Posted by brother Bill William Clarke  67′:

My wonderful brother Richard Clarke passed from life at approximately 3 am in Toulouse, France on 5/14/2019, from medical complications (Parkinson’s related) after a heroic struggle to recover over the last 2 and a half months in the hospital, he was 68 years, 3 months and 14 days old. He attended ISB from 1965 until he graduated with the class of 1968. He will be sorely missed by his family, his spouse and soulmate Christine Caminat, and his many friends in America and in Europe, where he spent so much of his life working in France and Germany. I will be posting more pictures from his life later, here is the last picture of him, he had this made for his passport renewal last year 2018. I will remember him always as the kindest brother of all, he was always gentle with people, never a mean word, he had a gentle soul, so handsome in his youth, played in a band at school called the “Soul Remains.” as I recall, with his brother David Clarke and others at ISB, God and the angels will take care of him now.
