Below is a video recording of my mom’s memorial service, which took place in Kirkwood, Missouri on Wednesday, May 17th, 2023.
A Mark of My Mom’s Success
I’m sure there were moments when my mom about died of embarrassment over our sometimes unruly behavior. Before her memorial service, I hadn’t been to K.U.M. in a long time. Being in those pews brought back memories of doodling on the bulletins and counting whatever I could find. She wanted us to sit still, so those were the two main activities.

Thinking back to how we used to squirm, it humored me to rewatch this video and see us sitting still and paying attention. Forty years before, she probably didn’t believe that was possible.
Anyway, without further ado, here is her funeral service:
