Obituary of Mary Kottke

It is with the heaviest and saddest of hearts that we inform you that our beautiful, energetic and gregarious mom, Mary Christina Eldredge Kottke (Molly) passed away on June 3, 2018 in St Petersburg, FL.

Our amazing mother was born on October 15th, 1938, in St Paul, Minnesota and later lived in New Hampshire and Florida.  We will never forget her unconditional love, and ability to always look on the bright side.  Molly lived to make others feel happy and special.  Extroverted and entrepreneurial to her core, she created and successfully operated Village Travel for more than 30 years.  Molly loved everything related to travel, Italy being her very favorite destination.  Her long career in travel began in the late 1950’s when she was a flight attendant for Braniff Airlines 

Molly was the mother of five children, Thomas Jr., Kenneth, Andrew, Stephen and Christina, they were the love of her life.  She also had 13 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, eight siblings, many nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.  

A Celebration of Life service will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the cause of your choice.
