My husband, Bob, and I first met Mary and Ken when we moved to Appleton in 1965 and joined First United Methodist Church. They befriended us and our children so graciously and Mary got me involved in the Mothers Club. We moved to Florida in 1968 and remained friends through phone calls and letters. After Ken died Mary and I became even closer friends talking at length on the phone. She brought their children to Florida once and stayed with us before going on to Disney World. We also visited her once and had such a good time meeting Leigh and Matt who lived with her. Since that time we have shared stories of our families, our trials and heartaches as well as out joys and blessings. She always mentioned members of her family that needed special prayers and we became prayer partners. She was truly a beautiful person and I will miss her with all my heart. Jane Love

I'm going to miss Mary Kuehl. Our friendship began a few years ago when she and I met at a "Traveling Tea Party", through the First United Methodist Church. Mary was the person we were honoring, and I was among those who were there to thank Mary for all she has done for the church. Mary loved those tea parties, and she loved sharing stories of her life -- and she took an interest on our lives as well. Mary and I made a "connection" and before we knew it, we were exchanging cards and letters. I will miss her.

I didn't know Mrs. Kuehl personally but I knew about her from being a member of the First United Methodist Church. My parents (both deceased)-Jack and Carol Forster --knew Mr. and Mrs. Kuehl from activities at the church.The thing I most remember is the flower chart she used to have on a bulletin board in the main church hallway--used for sign-ups on who wanted to have flowers in the sanctuary for what Sunday--then she would take care of the details. My family extends our sympathy and prayers to you on Mrs. Kuehl's passing. May you all cherish the difference she made in your lives as well as in the lives of others in her church and the community.

Mary you were such a wonderful person. I looked forward to seeing you every Sunday (was that the 5th or 6th row?). I always greeted you with "the old Mare, she ain't what she used to be", and you'd reply, "I'm better!". Your love of children was very evident and made a lasting impression on me during my 20 odd years of teaching Sunday School.at FUMC. And each year I put up the church Christmas tree, you thought I'd fall and hurt myself and we would laugh.You will always be near to my heart and memories of you to my smile. God bless all of your family-love, Packer Dan.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

John Kuehl, Grandson left a message on October 27, 2016:
I will forever remember Grandma as "The Rememberer". Every moment seemed to always be so clear in her mind - every conversation I and my siblings had with her from the time we were very young could be recalled at will and always with a smile and a wink on her face. Memories of our time together were the most important thing to Grandma, and the smallest of objects that were tied to those memories were her most prized possessions. I admire the way she donated her time and brought beauty to the world in the process. Her satisfaction was in doing things for others - from her work at the church to her dedication to making our favorite cookies and treats every Christmas. Without a doubt, Grandma saw the bright side of life even when it dealt her hands that any of us would want to fold. The lessons she taught us will live on in us.
Bobbie Murray left a message on October 25, 2016:
I was sad to read that Mary had passed. I have fond memories of her beautifully planned decorations for the salads used at the Annual Salad Luncheon at First United Methodist in Appleton. Each salad was made from the identical recipe and had identical decoration. It was a labor of love for her for many, many years. She had a perpetual smile and a kind word for everyone.
