Mary Elizabeth (Evans) Sharpe, 1884-1985, entrepreneur and patron of the arts (folder #2), met Koehler in 1920 at the time of her marriage to Henry Sharpe. Her long association with Koehler, during which Koehler purchased furniture and materials and decorated her house in Providence, R.I., lasted until Koehler's death. Mary Elizabeth Sharpe was the legatee of Koehler's estate of paintings and jewelry, and arranged a posthumous exhibition in 1948. She gave a large collection of Koehler's jewelry to the Rhode Island School of Design, and a collection of her paintings to the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse.
