Obituary

Ulrike Stadler Kozak, 77, of Kingfield, Maine, died on October 26, 2019. She died of complications related to a fall.
Born in 1942 in Hamburg, Germany, she immigrated to New York City in 1965 with her husband, the late composer Heiner Stadler. While in New York, Ulrike worked at Columbia University hospital and on weekends devoted her time to painting and sculpting. In 1982, Ulrike left the hustle and bustle of New York for the quiet back side of Mount Desert Island with her two daughters. On MDI, she became involved with the arts and classical music communities, and worked at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor as a research assistant. It was at the Jackson Lab where she met her second husband, Leslie Paul Kozak.
For nearly 15 years, Ulrike and Les pursued their shared passion for travel, music, horses, and skiing. Their love for skiing is what eventually drew them to Kingfield in 1998; and where Ulrike settled permanently two years later.
In Kingfield, Ulrike became a fixture in the community. She taught art and horseback riding to local children. She opened the town’s first art gallery in the big white barn adjacent to her home, and helped revitalize the town’s arts community. And she volunteered at Sugarloaf for close to 10 years, until her hearing loss became too much of a handicap and she wasn’t able to keep her position. She remained an active member of the Amos Eno Gallery in New York City where she regularly exhibited (most recently in a December 2018 group show titled Long Night).
Ulrike’s main motivation for opening the Stadler Gallery in 2001 was to provide exhibit space to contemporary artists throughout the region, including local artists Robert Gray, Abby Shahn, Clif Travers, Wally Warren. Dozens of exhibits rotated through the summer months over the years.
Ulrike was a voracious reader of contemporary and classic literature and loved old movies. As her hearing loss became more severe, she immersed herself even further into her painting, stained glass, and books.
A combination of chronic health conditions led to her steady decline. But she was unwavering in her desire to spend her final years in Kingfield, in the house she treasured with the view of the Carrabassett River surrounded by the love and support from friends and neighbors.
She is survived by a sister and two brothers who reside in Europe; daughter Julia Stadler and her wife Miriam Leenders; daughter Felice Stadler; grandchildren Ramy and Ava Logan.
A celebration of her life will be held in Kingfield in 2020.
