To the Muehl family - I was sorry to learn of Kathleen's passing. She was such a warm and vital person. I always enjoyed accompanying her flute music at Covenant Presbyterian where she was also a very loyal choir member. Her great love of music and warm hospitality will never be forgotten. Blessings and condolences in your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. She lived a long life. Kathleen played flute in our Holiday Winds Woodwind Quintet for many years. She was an inspiration to us all. I still have the elephant door stopper and the lovely Asian snack dishes that she gave me. I will forever cherish them.

I sang in choir with Kathleen many moons ago. What a great lady. I always remembered her wonderful smile. I also remember hubby Bill & recall what a great man he was. I have many photographs he took at various events I was involved in. I have such fond memories of them.....some of the best year of my life. I send my condolences to the Meuhl family in the loss of Kathleen. (I recall some redheads.) God bless all of you.
