Holy Cross Parish honors Doris Kuhl
Doris Kuhl received the Celtic Cross Award for her many years of service to the church at the 2009 Gaelic Gala March 15 at Holy Cross Church in Omaha.
Kuhl, born and raised on a farm in Randolph, has been active in Holy Cross School and Parish since moving to Omaha with her family in 1957. In 1960, Kuhl and her husband, Jim, formed the Funeral Escort Service of Omaha. Even though her husband passed away in 2003, Kuhl continues to operate the service with the help of her family.
Kuhl has been active in the Home and School Association, was a room mother, Cub Scout Den mother and helped with Girl Scouts. Kuhl sang in the church choir for many years and is a member of the Altar Society, Perpetual Adoration, Council of Catholic Women and volunteers with church cleaning.
Besides her many hours at Holy Cross, Kuhl finds time to volunteer at Douglas County Hospital and at the Stephen Center.
