Kathleen Marie Callahan died peacefully at home and surrounded by loved ones in Oakland on October 10, 2018 at the age of 63. Born to parents James Joseph and Margaret Elin (Bendorf) Callahan in Washington, D.C., Kathleen grew up in Piedmont, California. She studied cello under Orlando Cole at the New School of Music in Philadelphia and returned to the Bay Area and played in a number of orchestras, while taking art history classes at Hayward State and later pre-med classes at UC Santa Cruz.
In her mid-20s Kathleen began her career in real estate. She also married her first husband, David Stanley, at this time, and their daughter Sarah was born in 1981. In 1988, she married Andreas Neyer, and in 1989, her second child, Christoph, was born. Both of Kathleen’s children attended UC Berkeley, and with the children grown and out of the house, Kathleen became increasingly active in local charitable organizations and as a volunteer. She volunteered as a candy striper at Highland Hospital and more recently with the WriterCoach Connection in the Berkeley public schools. She served on the Board of Clausen House and the Piedmont Center for the Arts, where she also produced Tom Foolery. Following Andreas’ retirement in 2013, the happy couple pursued their love of travel together, with their most frequent destinations being England, Germany, and Switzerland.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Kathleen's name to the American Liver Foundation (
) or the Writer Coach Connection (
). Thank you.
