  • Johanna C. (Uncur) O'Donnell, age 48, a former Mohawk resident, passed away on Thursday, June 14, 2012, at Baltimore-Washington Medical Center, Glen Burnie, Md., with the love and support of her family.
    Johanna was born on March 17, 1964, in Herkimer, the daughter of Greta (Johansen) Uncur and the late Chester Uncur. She graduated from Mohawk High School and the Utica School of Commerce. She then worked for several years in the health care field as an administrative assistant at Strong Memorial Hospital and Highland Hospital in Rochester. Johanna was united in marriage on June 11, 1999, in Mendon, to LTC Jeffrey P. O'Donnell (U.S. Army), sharing 13 years of happiness, contentment and unconditional love. Together, they lived in many exciting places such as Savannah, Ga.; Augusta, Ga.; and Mannheim, Germany, because of Jeff's career with the U.S. Army.
    Johanna loved the countryside — going to Vermont and seeing the fall foliage was a favorite pastime. She loved to plan trips and travel, visiting many European countries, including her family's beloved Denmark, and spending time taking in the fields, pastures and mountains. While visiting those European countries, shopping and adding to her collection of Polish pottery was a special enjoyment for her. She also enjoyed the simple pleasures of cooking, especially holiday baking, but most important was taking care of her family, her husband and children, whom she cherished dearly. Johanna was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Crofton, Md.
    She is survived by her beloved husband, LTC Jeffrey P. O'Donnell, of Crofton, Md.; her mother, Greta Uncur, of Little Falls; her cherished children, Nora O'Donnell and Nicholas O'Donnell, of Crofton, Md.; her siblings, Catherine McCabe and her husband, Michael, of Rochester, David Uncur and his wife, Mary-Gayle, of Virginia, and Sharon Dunphy and her companion, Richard Ruggiero, of Dolgeville; her father and mother-in-law, James and Patricia O'Donnell; her brothers-in-law, Philip O'Donnell, Rory O'Donnell and wife, Bethany, and Terence O'Donnell; a niece, Eloise O'Donnell; and nephews, Bryan and Sean Uncur.
    The family will receive relatives and friends at the Enea Family Funeral Home, 24 W. Monroe St., Little Falls (823-2424), on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, from 5 to 7 p.m. and on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, from 8 to 9:15 a.m. Johanna's funeral will commence on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, at 9:15 a.m. from the funeral home, where prayers will be offered, and at 10 from Blessed Sacrament Church, 54 E. Main St., Mohawk, where her Funeral Mass will be celebrated by the Rev. Mark Cunningham, sacramental minister, assisted by Sister Mary Jo Tallman, parish life director. Procession will follow to Highland Rural Cemetery, Jordanville, where she will be laid to rest.
