KONYN, Johanna Catherina

Johanna Catherina  Konyn (nee Vogel)
March 7, 1924 – August 1, 2018
Johanna passed away with her loving husband Anton Dekker and family around her. Johanna was predeceased in January 1980 by her cherished husband, Theodore H. Konyn, loving father of daughters Johanna McKee (Jim), Rita Birksted (Frank), and son Phil Konyn. Johanna leaves behind six grandchildren and two wee, great granddaughters who will never feel that special love that only she could give. Johanna was the best wife, mother and friend that anyone could have wished for. She really enjoyed people and had such a great sense of humor. She had that sparkle in her that people were always drawn to. Johanna wasn’t afraid to ask for what she wanted and considered laughter the best form of exercise. She loved life and gave it her all. She loved with all her heart, and we all loved her right back. Johanna was one of a kind.  We wish to thank Dr. P. Wattam, Dr. E. Christie, Dr. J. Colby, Mary Stevers, and their teams who were so caring and showed so much attention to all of Johanna’s medical needs. Mom always said that she had the best doctors ever. We would also like to thank all the health professionals at the Picton General Hospital for the wonderful care that Johanna was given there. Johanna and Anton so enjoyed the Monday night Euchre at the Waupoos Community Hall, and made many friends there. In knowing and loving her, the sorrow we feel now will be replaced by the special sweet memories we hold dear to our hearts.
