Susanne Kunert

March 26, 1931 ~ January 20, 2021 (age 89)


Susanne Brigitte Kunert, age 89 of Durham, NC, passed away on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021. Born in 1931 in Wurtzen, Germany. Susanne was the youngest daughter of Otto and Anna Scheller.

In 1962, while living in Toronto, Canada, she married Karl Kunert. Shortly after their marriage, she and Karl immigrated to the USA and lived in Chicago where she worked as a computer programmer at an insurance company. Susanne and Karl had no children.

While living in Chicago, they always enjoyed vacationing in Florida, so when they both retired in 1986, they decided to settle there. When Karl passed away in 2013, Susanne decided to move to North Carolina to be closer to family.

Susanne was a kind and generous person. We will really miss her. She will be forever in our hearts.  

Susanne was predeceased by her husband Karl and she was the last surviving member of her family of origin, predeceased by her parents and her sisters, Martina Peschke, Irene Lamparter, and Monika Litterst.

She asked that there be a small memorial service for family members only. Donations in her memory may be made to the American Heart Association.

Arrangements entrusted to Piedmont Cremation & Funeral Service of Graham, NC.
