Remembering Marian G. Mullet


Pathfinder Village, its families, and the developmental disabilities community mourn the death of Village visionary and Founding President & Chief Executive Officer Marian G. Mullet early Sunday, March 17, 2019.  Mrs. Mullet worked tirelessly since the early 1960s to advance community inclusion and create opportunities for people with Down syndrome.  

A registered nurse by training, a fund-raiser and builder by happenstance, Mrs. Mullet is recognized as the driving force behind the early growth of Pathfinder Village, Edmeston. 
 Mrs. Mullet and the Board of Directors in the late 1970s envisioned a community that would not only provide services and supports for people with Down syndrome, but also would create opportunities for personal growth, skills development, personal relationships and community inclusion.  Today, Pathfinder Village is considered a global leader in human services and supports over 200 individuals through person-centered community-based programs; it has a staff of over 200, and an annual budget of $11 million.

Families, friends and others who knew Mrs. Mullet, as well as many who appreciated her good works, are now donating in her memory.  We thank all donors for their generosity in helping to perpetuate Mrs. Mullet's vision.


“Pathfinder Village helps people find their
way in life to independence, success, and
maturity — all the things you want for your family.”
Marian Mullet | Founder of Pathfinder Village
