Cornils ("Con") Mohnssen

October 27, 1942 - October 19, 2023


With heartfelt sorrow, we announce the passing of our father and Opa on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, after a brief battle with cancer.
Con was born October 27, 1942, in Heide, Germany, and immigrated to Canada in 1963 as a journeyman lineman. He married Bonnie Thompson in 1969, raising their family of four in Kimberley, BC.
He is predeceased by his wife Bonnie in 2016 and his son Colby in 2021.
Con leaves to mourn his daughter Susan (Charles) Huel, children Tristan and Juliana of Lethbridge, AB, son Kerry and children Kelsea and Max of Jupiter, Florida, and son Patrick
(Jenn), children Conner, Kian, and Ailish of Kimberley BC, and Colby’s children Orion and Brayden, as well numerous other relatives.
Con put in many tireless volunteer hours at the Meadowbrook Waterworks District.
At Con’s request there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank.

Truly sorry to hear of Con’s passing. I lived with Judy for some time and got to know Con and Bonnie.

From: Jane Stewart Nixon
Relation: Friend

So many amazing memories with Sue and the Mohnssen family. Not sure where to start Mr Mohnssen will be missed but will be happily rejoining Mrs Mohnssen. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.

From: Tom Neale
Relation: Neighbor growing up

Condolences to Susan, Kerry and Patrick. I just found out about your dad, so sorry to hear, he was a great man that will not be forgotten. Hugs to you all.

From: Marsha and Glen Carew
Relation: Con was a good friend to my mother, Kaye Hominiuk, deceased.

Con rented a basement apartment with my mom in Castlegar and commuted home to Kimberly for many years while he worked for MarTech Electrical. He was very kind to my mother who was a widow. Mom died in 2007; we continued to contact Con through Xmas cards and letters. We are sorry to read that he has died this past October. We will miss our annual Xmas chat with him. Condolences to his family; we know he was very proud of the accomplishments of all his children. Rest in Peace, Con; job well done!
