Obituary for Dorothy L. Koenigs

Dorothy Loretta Koenigs, 96, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on January 31, 2019 at St. Agnes Hospital. She was born in Fond du Lac, June 2, 1922 to Paul J. and Apollonia Rieder Buechel. She married Richard J. Koenigs at St. Mary’s Church in Fond du Lac on July 10, 1945.

Dorothy was a graduate of Fond du Lac Senior High School in 1940 and a Cosmetology School in Milwaukee. She was employed as a beautician prior to her marriage. After marriage, she and her husband farmed in the Malone area for many years. Later she was employed at the Malone Co-op until retiring. In 1989, Richard and Dorothy moved to Fond du Lac. After 64 years of marriage, Richard passed away in 2009.

Dorothy was a member of Holy Family Parish. She enjoyed gardening, cooking - especially her German potato salad and baking – especially her apple and lemon meringue pies. She loved watching Hallmark movies. Everyone always felt welcome in her home.
