Ildiko Ilona(ne Albert) Knopp was born in Budapest Hungary in 1932. She fled the country during the Hungarian revolution in 1956 to settle first in Toronto , then Montreal. She worked for many years in the civil engineering field where she met her beloved husband Hermann. She will be greatly missed by him, their daughter Martha ( married to Luc Maheux ) & children Alexia, Eric , Natalie, Adrian as well as their son in law Kirk Worounig ( husband of their deceased daughter Kristina)& children Samantha and Stephanie.
Ildiko was more of a doer than talker, though she enjoyed people …She always focused on the present and future leaving difficulties and regrets behind her.
She was a convert to Catholicism, loved to cook and bake, dress up for classical concerts and operas( she always wanted to be an orchestra conductor and played the cello for many years). She loved shopping. She exercised daily until she was in her eighties.Her faith and her family were her priorities in life. She was in good health until the September long weekend when she experienced a very quick decline due to rapidly progressing lung cancer.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to : Dans la Rue, a Montreal charity helping street people ( A celebration of her life will be held at St Malachys Church at 11:00 am on Saturday January 4th followed by lunch at her favourite restaurant Mamma Mia , 6070 Cote St Luc Rd,Montreal (m please RSVP your intentions to attend to Martha at 780 233 8620).

Dear uncle Hermann and Martha,
I feel privileged to have shared so many meaningful moments with aunt Ildiko. Among her countless qualities, her wisdom, vitality and intelligence impressed me the most. She will be sadly missed and will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Uncle Hermann, Martha and the whole family.
It is with much sadness that we heard of Tante Ildiko's passing. Although we have been away for 20 years, we still hold very fond memories. Her positive outlook, her laughter and the love she had for her family are very present in our memories.
You are all in our prayers as you continue a very difficult journey without her presence. Our comfort is knowing she is in her eternal home where we all will one day meet our loved ones.
