KILBURN, Gudrun Heide Siebecker
KILBURN - Gudrun Heide Siebecker Music Librarian at SUNY Buffalo and beloved wife of J. Michael Kilburn for more than 51 years, died in her sleep, after a relatively short illness on February 17, 2017. She was born on April 16, 1942 in Kaiserslautern, Germany, where she lived until coming to the USA on December 27, 1967. She will be missed by all that knew her, both here and in Germany. She worked as a cataloger in the Music Library from 1968 until her retirement in the late 90's. She was proud of her skills and many of her original catalog cards were later adopted by the Library of Congress. Thank you to all who sent her and her husband your prayers. At last she is free from the incredible pain of her final weeks. She is in a state of grace. In accordance with her wishes, there will be no funeral and her body was donated to the SUNY Buffalo Med School. If anyone wishes to donate or send flowers, please make a donation to her favorite charity, the Salvation Army. R.I.P.
Gundel, you will be sorely missed.
