BOULDER, COLO./ MADISON -
Eleanor B. Mulvilhill (nee Pittenger) was born
in 1917, in Longmont, Colo. She passed away in Boulder, Colo., on Friday,
Jan. 19, 2007. Known by all as Peg, she graduated from the University of
Colorado in 1938, majoring in chemistry. She married Edward Robert
Mulvihill (deceased) in 1939 and settled in Madison, where they lived most
of their lives. She raised three children while working part-time in the
graduate school office of the University of Wisconsin. She was well known
as a gourmet cook and facilitated and hosted countless social functions
for the University of Wisconsin's Spanish Department. She was an avid
reader and member of a book club for many years. She loved to sew and make
clothes for her family, leaving a handmade quilt for each of her
grandchildren. She traveled extensively in Europe, Japan, New Zealand and
Australia and lived for extended periods of time in Panama and Spain.
She was an avid gardener and hiker in her beloved Rocky Mountains of
Colorado, where for many years the Mulvihills owned a family cabin and
Meeker Park, Colo. Most of all, Peg will be remembered and missed for her
sweet smile and gentle and loving disposition. She is survived by her son,
Michael (wife, Amy) and his children Marc and Jemilla; her son, Dennis and
his children, Emily and Ned; and her daughter, Patti (husband, David
Kuntz) and their children, Jason (wife, Sarah Barker) and Jessica.
