Connie Roessner's Memorial
Connie Roessner was born Kunigunda Wachter in Viereth, Germany, on February 8th, 1909.
This site went live on February 8th, 2009, in commemoration of what would have been her 100th birthday.
Connie lived in Germany until she emigrated to the United States at the age of 21. She married
William Roessner in 1939, and had a daughter, Martha, in 1944. In 1959, William died of a
heart attack, and Connie finished raising her daughter on her own. When Martha later married,
Connie lived with Martha and her husband George. Martha and George had three children, Stephen,
Karen, and Laura, who were lucky enough to grow up with their loving grandmother in the same home.
At the age of 80, Connie suffered a stroke while gardening, and passed away on July 5, 1989 in Brookfield, WI.
She is buried with her husband in St. John's Cemetary in Queens, New York.
Connie was a wonderful mother and grandmother, and 20 years after her passing is still very sorely missed
by her family.
Below is a photo gallery of some moments from her life that we'd like to share with the world.
In loving memory of our grandmother,
Stephen Mueller, Karen Prueter, and Laura Mueller, February 8, 2009
