Marilyn Kochesperger receives the Susan Connelly Volunteer of the Year Award in 2012

She will be missed

Marilyn Kochesperger, also known as “Mrs. K” to many, will be missed, she was an amazing person, involved in so many things. In the early days of Colorscape, she was a dedicated volunteer from the get-go. She organized the hospitality center with Margaret Newell in the early years, while later she and Al, her husband, could be found manning the information booth. She loved talking to people! Marilyn and Al, also hosted a number of artists each year. She was the recipient of our very first Susan
Connelly Volunteer of the Year Award in 2012, and it was well deserved. She will be badly missed by a great many. The Board of Directors offers its sincere condolences to her family and friends.
