Evangeline Kuntz, 88, passed away Saturday, March 26, 2011. She was born in 1922, December 23rd of two Greek immigrants in Norfolk, Virginia - Cleon Kyrus, who shortened his name from Kiriakidis and Alpeniki Proimaki. This was their second child and they would have one more. She became a Registered Nurse in 1948 and was a member of the National Penn Women's Association where she was recipient of many awards and ribbons.
In 2002 she moved back to Norfolk, her birthplace, to be with the rest of her family. There are photos of her from the 1940's and many called her beautiful, but she did not want to be known as beautiful, rather say that she became more beautiful in her heart with age making friends quickly and easily. She is predeceased by her brother, Johnny and her husband, Joseph Kuntz, Sr.
Her kind heart will be remembered by her son, Joseph Kuntz, Jr.; her sister, Avra Egan; and many, many others.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, April 26, at Old Donation Episcopal Church by the Rev. Drew Fossie. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Medi Hospice of Virginia Beach, VA.www.SturtevantFuneralHome.com
