Tribute To Catherine Munson

Posted by Renee Adelmann on Saturday, March 21st, 2015 at 9:44am.

As a fellow Realtor, Eichler enthusiast and neighbor, I was saddened when Catherine Munson passed away just a little over a year ago. Catherine was an integral part of the allure and history of Eichler homes, beginning in the 1950s when, as an Eichler homeowner, Catherine worked as a hostess for the Eichler sales office in Terra Linda.  She continued, throughout her life, to be a tireless champion of Eichler homes and the Eichler lifestyle.

A few days ago, I was walking through the beautiful hills surrounding the Lucas Valley and came across this plaque honoring Catherine Munson. It reads:

The glorious hills of lucas valley

Horizontal afternoon light casts

Across the ridge as the sun sets

Lush green spring grasses soon

Followed by summer’s golden waves

This magnificent open space

Available for generations to enjoy

Thanks to Catherine H. Munson

“these things nourish our soul”

with love and gratitude

to an outstanding woman

our neighbor, our mom

whose vision decades ago

preserved these wondrous hills

through her enduring passion

for the place she called home


It is a lovely tribute to a woman who loved beautiful Marin.
