BOYNTON BEACH — Marie J. Horenburger died Nov. 12, surrounded by family. She was 78.
Born in 1941 in New York City, Marie Kedzierski was the first of six children born of the late Marie Kedzierski (Riso) and Edward Z. Kedzierski. She was raised in Massapequa Park, New York, and eventually moved to South Florida.
Mrs. Horenburger was wonderfully devoted to her two children, Fred Horenburger and Dana Schweitzer. She was a loving grandmother to Emily Mosher (husband Shawn), Jack Scarton, and Benjamin Suarez-Scarton. She was “Grandmarie” to great-grandsons Isaiah Mosher and Shawn Mosher Jr. and recently welcomed great-granddaughter Amelia Mosher. Being a grandmother was the light of her life.
Mrs. Horenburger is also survived by her five siblings, Art Kedzierski (wife Gail), Linda Butcher (husband Tom), Helen Hood, Karen Sliwak and Ed Kedzierski. She will be missed by many close friends and family.
An accomplished woman, Mrs. Horenburger dedicated her time to public service. She began a public service career in the late 1970s. One of her proudest accomplishments was her part in the revitalization of the city of Delray Beach. In 1994 she was appointed by the Palm Beach County Commission to serve as its representative on the Tri-Rail board, and she served for 21 years.
Mrs. Horenburger will be missed for her wisdom, generosity, warmth and willingness to include everyone she came across as a member of her family.
A celebration of her life was held on Nov. 22 at Journey Church, Boynton/Delray Campus, 715 S. Federal Highway, Boynton Beach.
