KOHL, Johanna (nee Haag)

Johanna, beloved wife of Werner Kohl, of Calgary, AB, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, February 8, 2019 at the age of 82 years.

Johanna lived a full and joyful life. She was happiest when surrounded by her family. She loved traveling, especially on her annual visits to Hawaii, where she spent time sunning, shopping and visiting with friends. Johanna was an avid gardener and had the ultimate green thumb. She also loved going to the casino and always had a way of beating the house – she was born with a lucky streak! Her friends will remember her sunny disposition and her joy at visiting them and sharing happy memories.

Johanna is survived by her husband of sixy-one years, Werner Kohl; her children, Tom (Brenda Mahoney) and Patty (Patty McCallum); her sister, Maria (Walter); and nephews, Bruno and Helmut Kurz.

She was predeceased by her her daughter Linda; parents, Andreas and Agnes Haag; her brothers, Ignatz, Josef and Conrad; and her sister, Helene Kurz.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Luke’s Catholic Church (Corner of Northmount Drive & Northland Drive N.W., Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.

Johanna and her family are grateful for the compassionate professionals at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and the Foothills Hospital. In particular, we’d like to extend our most sincere gratitude to Doctor Henning and Doctor Morris of the TBCC for their professionalism, compassion and commitment to care.

  10. My memories of Johanna are ones of bringing happiness to people. I will always remember your gentle, affectionate and calm way of being…your radiant smiles that denoted sociability, joy, and pleasure towards your family, my parents and all your friends. I will remember you as a lover of life. I have fond summer memories of visiting you and Werner at Shuswap Lake, of playing with Tom and Patty eagerly awaiting dinner to taste your homemade spätzle. It was the best! Being a part of the ‘Gemini club’ means I always think about you on my birthday. You will be dearly missed but in my mind’s eye I know you are close by…I’m grateful to have known you. Much love ~ hedy ❤️❤️❤️
