Anna E. Kuehnel, age 88, passed away peacefully on April 29, 2017, surrounded as always by her family and friends. Anna was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Helmut Kuehnel.

Born in New York City to Peter and Concetta Massaro, Ann was raised in the Bronx where at age 10 she met her husband. Ann & Helmut married in 1952 and moved to Virginia and then eventually to Houston as part of NASA. A resident of Seabrook since 1963 Ann was active in her community, volunteering with the Seabrook Sharks swim team, Cub Scout den mother, Seabrook Parks Board, Seabrook Garden Club and Republican Women's Club to name a few, but her greatest accomplishment and joy was her family. Her dinner table and party skills were legendary and enjoyed by all who knew her. Whether a 50 plus year friendship or new acquaintance, everyone was welcome at her home. Known as Mom K to so many, she was like a 2nd mother to all of her son's friends, extended family and anyone in need. Ann loved boating, gambling, penning poems for special occasions, fashion and jewelry, especially turquoise.

As a member of St. Paul Catholic church since 1964, Ann's trust in God and the promise of life ever after was unyielding. Ann lived life on her terms. Never a victim and always in charge. Her faith, iron will, love of family, and sense of humor sustained her in life through good times and bad, unwavering until her moment of passing.

She is survived by her beloved sister Rose Staiano, her three sons Eric and wife Roxanne, Carl and wife Gretchen, Kris and wife Vicky, grandchildren Katherine and husband Jaysen, Hunter, Amanda, Alexis, great grandson Jack Cooper, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Visitation, Vigil andRosary was held May 5 at the Crowder Funeral Home in Webster.

A Funeral Mass was held May 6 at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Nassau Bay.

In lieu of flowers or donations we ask that you take a friend out for dinner and drinks, or even better, take out someone who's in need of a friend and show them some love. In the end, that's what she was all about.
