Chagrin Falls, Ohio - Helen Margaret Kundtz née Luckiesh (affectionately known as Peggy), aged 90, passed away peacefully on May 13th, 2023, in her home in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. She was born on November 29th, 1932, in Shaker Heights, Ohio, to the late Matthew Luckiesh and the late Helen Luckiesh née Pitts. She was a beloved spouse, mother, and grandmother and an active member of the community. She touched the lives of many and will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her loving spouse, J. Andrew Kundtz (Andy), to whom she was married for 65 and half years. Andy was her pillar of strength and constant companion throughout their journey.

Joseph), Helen Kundtz Rosselli (Richard A. Rosselli), and John Matthew Kundtz (S. Manning Kundtz). Their unconditional love and support were a source of comfort to Peggy in every phase of her life.
