  Mr. BUCK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the life of Mary 
Jane Kuhn, of Milliken. My wife and I had the pleasure of knowing Mary 
Jane through her incredible work with the Genesis Project of Northern 
Colorado, where she showed the love of God to single mothers and their 
children in their times of greatest need.
  Mary Jane was born in Missouri, but at a young age her family moved 
to the 70 Ranch near Kersey. In 1964, she graduated from Platte Valley 
High School, and shortly afterwards she married her husband Richard. 
Just 4 years ago the two celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
  Richard and Mary Jane briefly lived in Germany while Richard served 
in the Air Force, before they moved to Washington, D.C. and then 
settled again in the Northern Colorado area.
  Mary Jane's was a life devoted to people, to her large family, 
including daughters Christine and Michelle, to the innocent children 
she fought for with Right to Life, and to the children she assisted 
throughout a career spent working in special education.
  Her outsized presence in this community and in the Resurrection 
Fellowship church community will be deeply missed. But her legacy, in 
the many people whose lives she impacted, will live on. Northern 
Colorado is a better place because of Mary Jane Kuhn.
