Harold and Mollie Bihn Nursing Scholarship

“Let the giver have the pleasure of the gift,” Mollie Bihn would say to her neighbor, Carol Murray. The Bihns believed that everyone should make their own way, but sometimes you need help. They were married 63 years when Harold died in June 2010; Mollie passed away in December the following year. The Bihns loved children, but were unable to have their own. Mollie would bake cookies and play songs on her organ while Harold and the children sang. The Harold and Mollie Bihn Scholarship was created through a generous estate donation and was established to help aspiring nurses.
