Pauline L. Kohler

October 19, 2010

Pauline L. Kohler died gracefully ?? as she had lived ?? on October 19, 2010. The daughter of George and Frieda Lenz, she was 102 years old.An energetic woman, she was an avid gardener, a world traveler and a voracious reader. She graduated from Mineral Area College at 84 and drove her own car until she was 99.She was a loving woman, devoted to her four children and their families, and she adored her husband, Theodore Nicholas Kohler, who preceded her in death. Her sisters, Helen Hermann (d) and Ruth Meyer, were her close companions throughout her life.She was an honest and ethical woman who never lied ?? not once. She criticized only on the rarest occasion, so when she did, people paid attention. She had only good things to say about others.A woman of personal faith, she worked tirelessly for tiny St. Peters Episcopal Church in Bonne Terre, MO, where she was senior warden. On many Sundays, she would be the only person in attendance. No matter, she conducted the worship service in its entirety.Her family, friends and a wide circle of admirers will miss her presence, acutely aware that there is less goodness in the world with her passing. She would tell us that we should continue to learn enthusiastically, experience widely and enjoy fully.Visitation will be Friday, October 22, 2010 at 10 AM at the St. Peters Episcopal Church in Bonne Terre. Service will be Friday at 11 AM at the St. Peters Episcopal Church. Burial will be at 2 PM on Friday at Oak Hill Cemetery in Kirkwood, MO.
