Joseph Peter Auberger, Sr.

Joseph Peter Auberger, Sr., 83, went to be with the Lord on Friday, Oct. 29th, at Guthrie, Cortland Medical Center after a short illness.

Joe was born June 19, 1938, in Sussex, NJ, to William H. and Anna E. Auberger and lived in Unionville, NY, until he retired in 1999. He served for two years in the U.S. Army 1st Armored Rifle Battalion, 48th Infantry, stationed in Worms, Germany, and was a member of the Knickerbocker Post #596 American Legion. Joe was a master loom technician and worked for the American Silk Label Co., in Unionville and the F.G. Montabert Co., in Midland Park, NJ.

After retirement, Joe and Ellie moved to Cincinnatus, NY, where he fulfilled his dream of building a log home. Joe was an avid sportsman, enjoying both hunting and fishing and was a lector and communicant at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church. He was also a devoted husband, father, and grandfather.

Joe is survived by his wife of 61 years, Eleanor Bogdanski Auberger, a son, Joseph, Jr., daughters, JoAnn (Mark) Johnson and Dr. Ann Marie Auberger, along with a grandson, Andrew (Elissa), and three granddaughters, Stephanie Auberger and Kali and Ashly Johnson.

Joe Pete and I shared the classroom of Harriet Nugent in Unionville Elementary School. He was a devilish boy and so much fun. I did not know hm as an adult, but he called me several months ago to tell me about his beloved family and to share a few memories. He still sounded like the Joe Pete I knew. My sincere condolences to his family who, I'm sure, will miss him very much. Karen McNeil Sonnergren, Carmel, California
