Mary Darlene Foley Kuhn Obituary
Mary Darlene Foley Kuhn passed away at her home on May 25, 2018, just four days past her 94th birthday. Dar, as she was known to her family and friends, was born in Lake Forest, IL on May 21, 1924 and spent her young years in Lake Forest and Evanston, where she graduated from the Roycemore School in 1941. She attended Pine Manor College in Brookline, MA, then Northwestern University, where she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and served as rush chairman. During WW II, she worked as a nurse's aide at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and was a member of the Junior League of Evanston and the Service Club of Chicago. Dar and her extended family were lifelong members of Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park. In 1946, she married John Martin Kuhn, known as Bud to his family and friends, a resident of Evanston. Dar and Bud Kuhn raised their family in Winnetka, and their three children all graduated from New Trier High School. The Kuhn's were also long time parishioners at Sacred Heart Church in Winnetka. They retired to Tucson, AZ and have spent their last years near their daughter's family in Dallas, Texas. Dar is preceded in death by her grandparents, Thomas and Mary C. Harney of Chicago; her parents, Carl J. and Marie H. Foley, and her brother, John Thomas Foley, all of Evanston; and her sister, Delphine F. Stanton of Santa Barbara. She is survived by her husband of 71 years, John Martin "Bud" Kuhn; her children, Richard Carlton, Jeffrey Martin (Gail), and Donna Marie Wellington (Robert); her grandchildren, Lindsay Wellington Martin (William), Ashley Wellington Lauria (Matthew), Robert Hall Wellington IV (Molly) and Jeffrey Thomas Kuhn; and 5 great-grandchildren.
