Albina C. Konchar

1923 - 2016

COOPERSTOWN - Albina C. Konchar, 92, of Hyde Park and formerly of Christian Hill, died peacefully Wednesday morning, January 20, 2016, at Chestnut Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Oneonta.

Born March 1, 1923, in Croatia, she and her family emigrated to France one year later. In 1930, the family came to the United States and settled in Fork Shop which is between Toddsville and Fly Creek. 

On February 14, 1942, Albina married Stanley L. Konchar in a ceremony at St. Mary's "Our Lady of the Lake" Roman Catholic Church in Cooperstown.  

For many years, they owned and operated a dairy farm on Christian Hill.  After retiring from farming they moved to Hyde Park in 1996.

She was predeceased by her husband of fifty-six years, Stanley, who died August 9, 1998; a son, Steven Alan Knochar, who died July 19, 1963; and a sister, Jean E. Cop, who died April 6, 2008. 

She is survived by her daughter, B. Jane of Hyde Park; a brother, Antone Cop of New Berlin; a sister, Rosemary Fisher of Mesa, Arizona; and several nieces and nephews.

Albina appreciated her good health, but was saddened because she outlived all of her friends.

As a way to remember Albina, light a candle in her memory.

Services will be held at the convenience of the family.
