    • Mary Ellen Runkle was called by God to enter his eternal kingdom on October 21, 2006. Mary Ellen was born September 9, 1952 in Spokane, Washington to Charles and Doris (Stockdale) Kinn. She grew up in the Spokane Valley. In 1972 she married Robert Runkle at St. Paschals Catholic Church in the Spokane Valley. She was a precious spouse and harried mother for 34 years. Mary Ellen relished all things spiritual, enjoyed reading, traveling, riding her bicycle (the townie), cooking and being with treasured friends. She taught natural family planning at Sacred Heart Medical Center, was a member of the Lady of Lourdes Parish Council, and was also a docent at that cathedral. Mary Ellen was also a charter founder of Our Lady of the Rosary Academy in Spokane. Upon moving to Coeur d'Alene, she became vice regent of the Catholic Daughters of the Americans (Our Lady of the Lake Court). She and her husband were recently honored with the 2005 Lois Loveridge Award for Outstanding Service to Human Life.
      Those of her family who await being reunited with Mary Ellen at the Heavenly Banquet are her husband, Bob Runkle of Coeur d'Alene; her four sons, Matthew Thomas of Oakland, John Charles of Columbus, Christian Robert of Spokane, and Patrick Edward at the home; her mother, Doris Kinn of Coeur d'Alene; and her three brothers, Tom of Alaska, Steve of Spokane, and Bill of Temecula. In lieu of flowers please consider making a contribution to Birthright of Coeur d'Alene at (208)664-1390. May Mary Ellen rest in peace.
