Gerlind B. Koerner


OBERLIN — Gerlind B. Koerner, 91, of Oberlin, Ohio, passed away Saturday morning, March 19 of natural causes.

She was born in Chemnitz Germany on May 20, 1924, to Anni and Werner Kump. She immigrated to the United States in 1956, settling in the Detroit area.

She is preceded in death by her middle son, Andreas Koerner. She is survived by her two sons, Michael Koerner and his wife Diane and their son Eric, and Stephan Koerner and his partner Sue.

Gerlind moved to Oberlin in the late 1990s to embrace a new adventure of reconnecting with old friends and firmly establishing roots with new friends. Her presence will be missed by family and friends, yet she will always be close at heart.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to the Kendal at Oberlin Staff Emergency Fund and/or Stephens Education Fund (kao.kendal.org).
