Obituary for Christa Wesemann Fancsaly

Christa Wesemann Fancsaly of Atlanta Georgia, passed away on April 23, 2019, at Emory University Hospital at the age of 93. Christa was born on June 29, 1925 in Neustrelitz, Germany. She immigrated to the United States following World War II and lived in Atlanta for over 60 years before her death. Prior to her retirement, Christa enjoyed a long career with the German Consulate General in Atlanta. She also loved the northeast Georgia mountains and spoke fondly of her time with her husband, Kazmer, at their little cabin near Blairsville. An avid horsewoman, Christa rode in equestrian events for most of her life and had an abiding passion for horses until the end. She was also known for her community service efforts, including delivering leftover bread from her local Panera to a homeless shelter virtually every day for many years. Finally, Christa was active in St. John’s Lutheran Church in Atlanta.

Christa is survived my two nieces, Elisabeth Schat and Karin Gäbler, and their families, all of whom reside in Germany, as well as a step-daughter, Denise Gulyas, and a number of step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren in Hungary. She will also be greatly missed by a number of close friends in and around Atlanta. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Kazmer Fancsaly, her parents, Frederich and Elisabeth Wesemann, her brother, Heinz Wesemann, and a step-son, Gaspar Fancsaly.

Christa will be buried alongside her husband in Grömitz, Germany. Christa Fancsaly’s family will hold a funeral for her at St. Nicolaikirche in Gromitz, Germany. Dates and times are still pending.

Memorial service will be held Sunday, June 16, 2019, 2:00 PM at St. John’s Lutheran Church, located at 1410 Ponce de Leon Ave., NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30307. All are invited to attend. Online condolences may be made at Arrangements by Crowell Brothers Funeral Homes & Crematory, 5051 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092. 770-448-5757.
