Obituary: Irmgard Paula Birth Koenig

Irmgard Paula Birth Koenig "Mutti" 1923 ~ 2005 Our beloved Mutti, Irmgard Koenig, returned to her Heavenly Father on November 18th, 2005. She was born June 10, 1923 in Schneidemuehl, W Prussia, Germany, to Friedrich and Emma Birth, the 4th of 11 children. She married Heinz Hw Koenig November 28, 1947 in Germany. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple after they immigrated to Utah in 1956. She loved working with glass, as a Master Glazier, until she retired at age 72. She was a true and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a member of the German Speaking Ward, she enjoyed singing in the choir. She loved, most of all, going to the cabin at Bear Lake. There she found peace and freedom. One could always find her in her golf cart, on the beach, feeding the seagulls. Survived by her children: Elke Brown (Charles), Gerhard Koenig, Karl-Heinz Koenig (Darlene) Daniela Woods, Hyrum Koenig, and her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; as well as her siblings Edith Rohloff (Walter), Christa Koenig, Werner Birth, Brigitte Foster (Gerald), and Peter Birth (Lynne). She was preceded in death by her husband Heinz Hw Koenig; her parents Friedrich and Emma Birth; her sister in law, Eva Maria Birth; and her siblings Margarete Christiansen, Ruth Daniels, Eva Birth, Nephi Birth, and Gerhard Birth.
