On September 3, 2018 our hearts were broken to learn that our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother had died.
Mary Jo (Amonds) Koenigsberg was born in Rome, Georgia, USA on January 28, 1938 and died in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta Canada on September 3, 2018 at the age of 80. She leaves behind her daughter Sharon and son in law Ron Gabert. Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren Brandon, Amanda and Reese Tech, Christin, AJ and Holden Wiltshire, Emily, Nick, Everlee, Isla (and soon to be born Eli) Humphrey, Andrew, Alysha, Easton and Cypress Tech, and Dianna, Mike and Troya Morales.
Granny, as she was affectionately known, loved crossword puzzles, clowns, knick knacks, bargain hunting, the holidays and most of all her family. Especially the recent addition of babies! And never did a week go by that she wasn’t buying something for them. She immigrated to Canada in 2008 so she could be closer to her daughter and three of her grandchildren (and later their families). We made many good memories at the holidays and throughout the year at family get togethers. Christmas of 2016 all of the family was together and I’m quite sure was one of her happiest times. She was even as excited as the babies seeing Santa.
She attended church at Christ Lutheran Church in Fort Saskatchewan.
A private family service will be held in her honor.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice.
She faithfully supported The Stollery Children’s Hospital, the SPCA and WINGS (Women in Need Growing Stronger) of Edmonton.
