Koller, Maureen

Maureen Davies Koller, 73, passed away on April 15, 2015, surrounded by family in Plano, Texas.

Maureen was born on November 18, 1941, in New York City, to Howard Davies and Eva Marley Davies. She attended Holy Cross Academy in Manhattan. In 1960, she accompanied her aunt, Jean Marley O’Leary, to Vienna, Austria, where she met her future husband, Siegmar Koller. They were married in 1963 and raised four children:  Michelle, Steven, Jean Marie, and James.

The Kollers settled in Dallas, Texas, in 1975. Maureen was a member of the Aquarius Group of North Dallas, Willow Bend Polo and Hunt Club of Plano, and of All Saints Catholic Church in Far North Dallas.

Maureen is preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, Richard and Robert Davies, and her infant twin sister, Jean. She is survived by her husband and children and their spouses, Edward Pittman of Dallas, Tripp Mahan of West Hollywood, California, and Ernst Weinmann of Vienna, Austria.  She is also survived by her brother, Michael Davies, of Islip, New York.  Maureen found great joy in the company of her grandchildren:  Oliver and Isabelle Weinmann of Vienna, Austria, and Dylan and Jackson Koller of Frisco, Texas.

A private reception in Dallas to celebrate her life will precede the scattering of her ashes along the seashore of her childhood summer home in Point Lookout, New York.  Should friends desire, memorials may be made to the charity of their choice.

You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

I will always honor and appreciate the honest advice I always received from Maureen. She was a wonderful mother in law and I truly valued her opinion. She understood the joys and struggles of motherhood and always reminded me that I was loved and doing a good job. She will be missed always and I'll continue to look to her for guidance!!

I have wonderful memories of Maureen as our next door neighbor in Bowie MD many years ago in the early 70s. She was fun-loving and vivacious , a great mom to Michelle, Stevie and Jeannie and especially loved her beautiful collies Lady and Sir. I know she is a bright light in heaven.
