R.I.P. Molly’s son

Two months ago we had the sad duty of telling you about the passing of Molly Spaun, the owner of the longtime Tower Avenue watering hole called Molly’s Tavern.

Now we are sorry to tell you about the passing of the other half of the duo behind the bar: Molly’s son Oscar Muench died last week.

Muench was responsible for turning Molly’s from an old sailor bar into the antique-decorated hangout that patrons since the 1970s remember.

Muench, 62, died Wednesday at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center. A remembrance will be held 5-6 p.m. June 11 in the Downs-LeSage Funeral Home, 1304 Hammond Ave. in Superior.
