May 31, 2002

Margaret Vaeth Koenig, a retired Realtor and homemaker, died of heart failure May 23 at her Carney home. She was 83.

Born in Baltimore and raised in the 2800 block of E. Monument St., Margaret Lorraine Vaeth was a 1937 graduate of the Institute of Notre Dame.

In 1944, she married Albert A. Koenig Jr., former advertising art director for the old News-American. He died in 2000.

The longtime Carney resident began her real estate career in the 1950s, and worked for agencies including Russell T. Baker and Coldwell Banker Grempler Realty Inc. She retired in the late 1990s.

"She loved helping people find the home of their dreams and wanted all of her customers to be as happy in their neighborhood as she was in hers," said a daughter, Sally Bishop of Parkville.

Mrs. Koenig enjoyed using the computer to keep in touch with friends, and spending time with her family.

"She was very forward thinking, always on the go, and interested in everything new and exciting," Mrs. Bishop said.

Services were held yesterday.

She is also survived by a son, Albert Koenig III of Coatesville, Pa.; another daughter, Susan Luckan of Fallston; a brother, Fred Vaeth of Timonium; two sisters, Bettemae Filbert of Mays Chapel and Mary Lee Wist of Towson; and six grandchildren.
