Amalia R. Kunze

May 25, 1931 - January 20, 2019

Amalia Raquel Kunze, 87, of Warsaw, NY, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at Suzanne?s Comfort Care Home in Perry, NY.

She was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 25, 1931. She was a daughter to the late Vincente and Orfelia (Bravo) de Almendra.

She came to the United States in 1960 and worked in the export department for Faberg? in New York City. It is also in New York City where she met the man of her dreams, Werner Kunze, who had also immigrated to the United States from Germany. They were married on July 2, 1963 and settled near Hackensack, New Jersey. In 2000 they moved to Warsaw, NY to be closer to Werner?s brother?s family.

Amalia studied various courses in the medical field and enjoyed reading. She also loved fashion and devoted many hours to designing, sewing and knitting. In more recent years she became interested in beading and crafted some beautiful necklaces, many of which she gifted to friends and relatives.

She was grateful for her friends, neighbors and caregivers. She was especially proud of her nieces and nephews as if they were her own children. She was a very kind and sincere person.

Amalia is survived by her husband, Werner; a brother, Carlos de Almendra of Tijuana, Mexico; a sister-in-law, Adele Kunze, of Wyoming, NY; two nieces, Ursula (Bill) Fuest of Pavilion and Monika (Lou) Ghise of Wyoming, NY; a nephew, Hans (Leslie) Kunze of Wyoming, NY; two nieces in Germany, Inge Redeker and Gisela Muheim; 15 grand and great nieces and nephews; and a very dear friend, Pat Bagg, of Warsaw, NY.

Along with her parents she is predeceased by a sister, Ofelia Ynes de Almendra; a brother-in-law, Rudolf Kunze; a sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Annemarie and Uwe Redeker.

Family and friends may join in celebrating Amalia?s life on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. at Robinson and Hackemer Funeral Home in Warsaw, NY. She will be laid to rest in the Wyoming Cemetery at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to Suzanne?s Comfort Care Home, 167 N. Main St. Perry, NY 14530 or a charity of the donor?s choice.
