Katharine (Guinther) Wenner
September 22, 1934 - January 3, 2021
Newburgh, NY
Katharine Wenner was a good mother who loved God, family and friends. She was a source of joy and light to those who knew her. She worked as an Administrative Assistant at the West Point Military Academy, but her real love was always music. She looked forward to playing the church organ every Sunday and loved teaching piano to her students. Kathy was the organist at the church of the Holy Innocents for 25 years. At the church she was the originator of the Thanksgiving Community Dinner, Stained Glass Window Concert Series, Christmas pageants and many other activities such as relief work in Honduras. She also helped with the Highland Falls Town Parade. She always went to Canterbury Club Meetings and was very supportive of the West Point cadets. When she had time for herself, she enjoyed sailing on the Hudson River with her partner James Boujikian and friends.
She dearly loved her grandchildren and the time she spent with them. She retired in 2012 and moved to Fort Meyers, Florida. After having heart problems she returned to the area to be near her two sons, Randy and Richard Wenner and the Community of the Church of the Holy Innocents.
Kathy is survived by her sister Miriam Fox; her sons Richard Wenner and Randy Wenner and his wife Sara; stepson Mark Boujikian and his wife Diane; grandchildren David Wenner, Marissa and her husband Samuel Killian and Noah Boujikian. In addition to her parents Kathy is predeceased by her two brothers Russell and Billy Guinther and her companion James Boujikian.
In the words of her son Randy, "I thank my mother for everything she helped me with in her life. God Bless her always. Peace." Amen from all who knew her.

Randy, Richard: I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt K's passing. She was always so nice to be around, she lit up the room with her bubbly personality and quick wit. I have many happy memories of Camp Biff, West Point, Fort Meyers, and some nice visits at Sapphire. It feels like Covid stole the last year, and this seems like the end of an era. Give me a call sometime, we should talk.
Stu.
