It is with great sadness that I share this update on Paula Kohles (Creighton University Financial Aid) regarding her 10 year old daughter, Megan for whom many have been praying these past weeks, months and years since Megan’s first diagnosis of Rhabdomyosarcoma in Sept. 2004.
She died peacefully in her sleep early yesterday morning with the people she loved the most.
Please lift this family and Megan in your prayers today and in the coming days. Messages can be added at the caring bridge site under ‘Guestbook’ or sent through the mail to:
Creighton Financial Aid, Attn: Paula Kohles, 2500 California Plaza, Omaha, NE 68178
Megan’s visitation will be held tonight from 4-7 pm at St. John Vianney Church in Omaha and the service will begin at 7 pm. The address is 5815 Oak Hills Drive, Omaha, NE.
Her mass of heavenly healing will be held on Wednesday at 10:30 am at St. John Vianney Church as well. The family will be hosting a luncheon immediately following mass and then burial will be held at 3:00 pm in the Earling, IA Cemetary.
Here are the family’s requests – please honor Megan by wearing something pink, purple or yellow if you would like. We would also ask that you consider a donation to one of her favorite summer camps in lieu of flowers. Her favorite camps are Camp CoHoLo and Camp Quality Heartland.
Camp CoHoLo, Children’s Cancer Camps of Nebraska, c/o Bank of Yutan, PO Box 130, Yutan, NE 68073 (tax ID is 47-0786778) or online at justgive.org.
Camp Quality Heartland, PO Box 402, Council Bluffs, IA 51502
Paula and her family wish to thank everyone for the continued prayers and all the messages in the guestbook. They will be forever grateful for the love and support that so many people have given them all during Megan’s illness.
