Mary Christina Wahl

Central City - Wahl, Mary Christina. "Tommy," 94, died Saturday, September 8, 2018, surrounded by her family. She was born on November 23, 1923 in Central City, KY. Tommy was an accomplished pianist and an active soprano in many choirs. She had a deep respect for music that permeated her family gatherings, that she passed down through her children. She could make just about anything with her hands and sewed for her family and her community whenever she had the chance. Tommy was known for her spirited wit and her ability to bring laughter into any space. No matter where she was, she was the light of the room.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years: Ed, her son: Philip, and her four brothers. She is survived by her children: Stephen Wahl (Theresa), Mark Wahl (Ellen), Matthew Wahl (Beatriz), Alicia Kane (Michael), and Siena Kennedy; thirteen grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren. Tommy had an adventurous spirit, had a chance to travel the world, but was most fond of her warm home filled with those she loved most.

Tommy's life was celebrated with a song filled mass and reception at St. Brigid's Catholic Church on September 11th, 2018. She was buried at St. Michael's Cemetery in Louisville.

Thank you to all who participated and helped plan this ceremony at the convenience of her children, who traveled long distances to be at her side to sing, pray and thank her as she took her last breath.

A special thanks to Carmel Manor, St. Charles Community, and the friends and family who provided her tremendous love in her last years.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that donations be made to Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity ( or the .
