Johanna Emilie von Koppenfels born in 1936, married Frederick William Holzbaur in 1959, with whom we served for a number of years in the military. The von Koppenfels were noble landowners in East Prussia and businessmen to boot. Johanna and Fred Holzbaur are good friends and thought to dig up her coat of arms to be a fun thing to do and hope they enjoy this. Well, we hope they did, unfortunately Johanna passed away this year on 27 Feb 2020 at age 83. May she rest in peace. Pray for her soul.

The artwork is a rendering by John Hamilton Gaylor.
