Mary Lou Kuhn


Mary Lou "Mimi" Kuhn, 90 of Carmel, passed away on March 22, 2019. She was born in Toledo, Ohio to the late Robert and Lulu (Sweet) Potts. Mary Lou attended both Toledo University and Earlham College before graduating from Butler University in 1951 with a B.S. in Education. She married her husband of 37 years, Don Kuhn on December 26, 1951.

Together they owned Kuhn and Associates.

Mary Lou was a member of St. Francis Episcopal Church in Zionsville. She was also an avid and accomplished bridge player that played many years at the Indianapolis Bridge Center. Her other passion was genealogy, which grew with her membership in the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Governor Oliver P. Morton Chapter, Daughters of the Union.
