Martha M. Koenig, 70, died Dec. 6, 2022, at the St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud.

Mass of Christian Burial was Dec. 13, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sartell with burial following at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery.

Martha was born Sept. 4, 1952, to Dr. Robert and Patricia Koenig. The second of nine children, Martha was a beautiful person with many interests and a rich, diverse life. She pursued her interests despite the many roadblocks that challenged her. Thanks to her strong will and persistence, she played piano and loved the classics, Beethoven and Mozart. She loved the classical literary world, as well, and had acquired quite a collection in her home library. She was well-read, and she took delight in sharing her literary insights and wit with all. She had a terrific ability to write, which shined through in the letters she often wrote to loved ones. Martha worked at Lovin’s Fabrics for a time and enjoyed crocheting and embroidering. Her works were lovingly given as gifts, now cherished. Martha was physically strong and spent some time on the family farm caring for livestock. She was always quick to help others, as she was able.

Martha visited the St. Cloud and St. Cloud State University libraries often, taking the Metro bus for transportation, as she loved and appreciated her independence. She was a glowing example to all who knew her as a person full of joy and gratitude for all she had and for every kind gesture she received.

She is survived by her mother, Patricia; her siblings, Paul, John (Karla), Peter (Nancy), Bill (Cheri), Mary Pat Saul (Roger), Theresa (Al Hagen) and Michael (Susan); and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert; and brother Richard.
