In Memoriam: Frank Koller, 1921-2011

Frank and Betty at the library named in memory of their son
One of the library's founders and great supporters, Frank R. Koller, passed away over the weekend. A brief notice: 
Frank R. Koller, 89, a well-known philanthropist who benefited many area community and health care organizations through the years, died at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield on Sunday, May 15.

Koller and his wife, Betty, who survives him, were instrumental in helping to build many area community facilities, including parks and libraries.

One of his most recent benefactors was Marshfield Clinc's Melvin R. Laird Jr. Center for Medical Research in Marshfield. Koller provided a $5 million deferred donation to complete a $40 million capital campaign for the facility.
