Mary Katherine Bollinger Mueller - aka Kathy, Kitty, Kate... We were 2nd cousins, so we saw each other a lot over the years at various family gatherings and attended Holbrook together when they moved to Lebanon. She was brilliant and had a huge heart. Kate was having a great life, married Ernie (another science geek!) and they were having a ball traveling EVERYWHERE! Earnie is smart and charming and took her on some great adventures.She sent out amazing Christmas cards! I last saw her in the spring of 2005 - I was in St Louis with some friends for St.Patty's Day fun, called her, and she came out to join us. We were quite a sight in our GREENS (I'm still searching for a photo) but she joined right in and we had a wonderful evening involving Irish music, dancing and quite a bit of Harp. I miss her a lot. Her death was very sudden and unexpected. I'm so glad I called her when I had the chance.

This loss came as a surprise to me with sadness. Val, I ran into you that same year in your "greens "in St. Louis. I am glad you were able to get up with her while you were there. She was such a smart and kind girl.

I didn't realize she had passed. I remember being in band with her and she was pretty quiet. But, Mr. Donovan thought we were twins or something because he always called me Mary. We would laugh and I would just answer to whichever name he called me!!
