KUNZENDORF, Mabel Roberta (“Bert”).  A long-time resident of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, Bert died peacefully in Holly Hill, Florida, on August 1, 2016.  Born on February 9, 1927, in Lincoln, Nebraska, she was the daughter of the late Ted and Mabel Valentiner.  She leaves her daughter Diane Durgin and her husband Skip of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and her son Bob Kunzendorf and his wife Liz Ritvo of Newton Highlands, Massachusetts.  She also leaves grandson Chad Durgin, his wife Lauren and great-granddaughter Natalie of Richmond, Virginia; grandson Byron Durgin, his wife Lindsay and great-granddaughter Peyton of Charlotte, North Carolina; granddaughter Jennifer Hughes, her husband Marcus and great-granddaughter Isabel of West Roxbury, Massachusetts; and granddaughter Rebecca Melaas and her husband Eli of West Roxbury, Massachusetts; and many nieces and nephews.  Bert graduated from College View High School in Lincoln, began a career in sales at Gold’s Department Store, and married her late husband Godfrey (“Zeke”) Kunzendorf in 1949.  Bert was a loving mother to her children.  She served as the president of the PTA at their school, Randolph Elementary, and as a den mother.  In 1965, the family moved from Lincoln, Nebraska, to Bethesda, Maryland, where Bert became president of the Welcome Wagon.  In 1970, the family moved to Florida where Zeke and she opened Centra House of Furniture in Altamonte Springs.  After Zeke’s death in 1975, Bert moved to New Smyrna Beach where she again worked in retail furniture before retiring to enjoy many friendships at the New Smyrna Beach Yacht Club and many travels around the world.  In 1988, she married the late Rex Williams, formerly of Shepherd, Michigan.  Bert will be fondly remembered and cherished for her love of family, her spirit, and her generosity.  A memorial service to celebrate Bert’s life with family and friends will be held at a later date.

    Thank you, Aunt Bert, for being there for me when I really needed a "mom". You played a huge role in "raising" me to be who I am. I'll never forget my times with you at the beach, our long talks and your infectious laugh and sense of humor. I have and will continue to miss you, but am so glad you're at peace.
    Love always,
