KORNFEIND - John Joseph William Kornfeind, 67, of Glendale, AZ, born 1951 in Freeport, IL & died
September 30, 2018.
The news of John's untimely death has left a hole in the DVHH family. He joined the DVHH mail list in 2006 and upon DVHH becoming a nonprofit in 2007, he faithfully served for 10 years on the Board of Directors until 2017. John was the DVHH Treasurer for 2008 & 2009. His contributions during the 501c3 organization period was so appreciated. He was very excited to volunteer as the Village Coordinator Keglewichhausen of Banat. He loved developing content to share with others on his beautiful village web site published by his child Takashi. John loved helping others with their research, as he diligently grew his own tree. Being a deep thinker, his messages and explanations were always detailed. He suffered quietly
with spondylitis and founded a support group to help others. John was a kind soul and loved life. I share an excerpts from one of John's 2006 mail list postings "In a way the people of the DVHH and other concerned groups become like family, because only you really know and understand. I feel this is the only approach I can take in order to discover my "Banat Family Genealogy Gold." "So for me this is what I find of greatest value in the DVHH postings. Thank you all."
~ The DVHH extends condolences to his wife Makiko and child Takashi.

KRETSCHMANN - Theresa, February 16, 1930 - October
20, 2020 It is with heavy hearts and deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our cherished mother, mother-in-law, oma and great-grandmother. She went to be with her Lord and Savior peacefully with her family by her side. She is happily reunited with her loving husband John (2014). Theresa was born in Yugoslavia and came to Canada with her mother in 1950. She married her husband John in 1951 and they raised two daughters Diana and Sandra (John). The best part of their life here on earth were their four grandchildren Nolan Carr (Stephanie), Alyssa Martin (Kevin), Bryson and Dalton Boyle. It was her privilege to become a great grandmother to baby Emma Adelaide Carr born December 29, 2019. John and Theresa taught their family to love
deeply and completely. They loved to sing and dance and spend winters in Florida. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her but the memories will last in our hearts forever. Thank you to Chartwell Oak Park Terrace and Iler Lodge for their three years of kindness and care. If you so desire, donations to the First Lutheran Church would be appreciated by the family. A private family service will be held. (Source: familiesfirst.ca)

John Joseph William Kornfeind
was sometimes adamant. If you weren’t ready, he might dart off (but if help was needed, he was ever willing). Nobody threw away his stuff without permission (most anything was useful). He wanted to write his obituary exactly his way. Unfortunately, this was not to be. Soon after John had written
about his good health, he took a walk at a favorite park and library. On the way home, he was hit by a car. He was taken to two hospitals, but his injuries were too severe. On September 30, John died surrounded by family and friends. Sorry Dad, you’re stuck with this guinea fowl scratch.
In 1951, John was born in his beloved hometown, Freeport, IL. He graduated from Aquin High School in 1969, from Loras College with a BA in Sociology, and from AGSIM with a Master of International Management in 1985. While he was a social worker in Dubuque, IA, he met and married his wife, Makiko. He spent
29 years working for Prudential before retirement.
His true passion was in helping others, be it through work, as a volunteer or as a friend. Spare moments were spent on one of numerous hobbies and interests, inclusive of genealogy, history, church committees, choir, music, spondylitis support group (founder), antiques, trains (real and HO), travel,
photography, hiking, nature, gardening, DIY projects, and Pokémon. His sense of humor and Korny puns, his compassion, his stories, his curiosity and zest for life, his intelligence, his optimism are already sorely missed.
John is preceded by his parents, John L. and Helen Kornfeind, and siblings, Michael and Theresa. Survivors include his wife, Makiko; child, Takashi; siblings, Tom, David (Patricia Kee), and Richard (Sherri); Michael’s wife, Maureen; nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
A Memorial Mass to celebrate John’s life will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018, at 10:00 AM at St. Jerome (10815 N 35th Ave, Phoenix). Lively attire or silly socks in his memory are encouraged. [www.heritagemortuary.com/obituaries/John-J-Kornfeind?obId=3386473]
