Phoenix Anne MONGIN Obituary
Age 21 of Saint Paul Passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on July 26, 2014. Phoenix was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on May 5, 1993, and moved to Saint Paul shortly thereafter. She graduated from Cretin-Derham Hall in 2011, and was a junior at Hamline University majoring in chemistry. A favorite quote of hers was Gandhi's: "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." She lived it. Her energy, enthusiasm, and engaging personality will be deeply missed. Phoenix is survived by her parents, Steve and Becky; her brother, Grant (Rosalind); her sister, Alex; uncles Carl E. Kroncke, Jim (Patty) Kroncke, Paul (Pam) Kroncke, Pat (Sandi) Mongin; aunt Claire (Peter) Bauer; many cousins; her nephew Liam; her boyfriend, Greg Martinetti; her friends from Cretin-Derham, Carbone's, and Hamline; and many others. Phoenix was preceded in death by her grandparents, John and Helen Mongin, Carl W. and Myrtle Kroncke. Visitation will be held at O'Halloran and Murphy Funeral Home, 575 South Snelling Avenue, Saint Paul, www.ohalloranmurphy.com, 651-698-0796, on Friday, August 1, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Visitation resumes on Saturday, August 2, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, at Phoenix's beloved Hamline University, Anderson Center (1st Floor), 774 North Snelling Avenue, Saint Paul (free underground parking off of adjoining Englewood Avenue), with a secular memorial service at the same site, beginning at 2:00pm. Guests are encouraged to bring a potted plant or flowers to the service for decoration and then take it home to let it grow in memory of Phoenix. In lieu of plants or flowers, Phoenix's family would appreciate donations to the Epilepsy Foundation, www.epilepsy.com. We'll miss you, Beanie, every day.
