Obituary of Emma Maria Vogl

Emma passed away peacefully on June 11, 2024, at the age of 97.  She was born in Styria, Austria, and immigrated to Canada in 1933.  Predeceased by her beloved husband John of 61 years and parents John and Mary Gutmann. Loving mother of Douglas and Tippy (Chimem) of Thailand and Margaret of Kitchener.  Oma to Tyler and Ilsa of NL, Evan and Tash of BC and Hannah of PE. GG to Maximus and Twyla. Sadly missed by brother-in-law Erich (and family) in Austria.

Emma previously worked at Burns, Seagrams and her longest tenure was at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Kitchener.  She was an active sports enthusiast and loved basketball, baseball, tennis and golfed until she was 80.  She was also a member of the Catholic Women's League, the Alpine Club Dance Group in Kitchener, and she and her husband were long-time supporters of the K-W Symphony. She loved her pet cats, but her greatest loves were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
