In Memory of Lena E. Muendelein

Mount Clemens Public Library has lost a friend and former staff member in the death of Lena E. Muendelein on Thursday, August 12. Mrs. Muendelein was a reference clerk at the library for nearly 17 years, beginning her career in October 1967 when the library was still housed in the old Carnegie building (now the Anton Art Center). Over the years, until her retirement in June 1984, Mrs. Muendelein assisted patrons in both the adult and children's departments of the library, maintained the pamphlet files, and assisted with library programs.

Even after her retirement, she was a regular visitor at the library as her health allowed. She will be missed.

Funeral services for Lena Muendelein will be held on Monday, August 16 at 11 a.m. at the Will & Schwarzkoff Funeral Home. You may read the obituary notice by clicking here.
