Carol 'Kitty' Koenig-Probyn Dead at 56

April 11, 2009 -- Carol “Kitty” Koenig-Probyn passed away at home in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 8, 2009, after a long battle with cancer, while surrounded by her family and closest friends.
Kitty was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey on Nov. 15, 1952. After a successful career as both a model and actor, Kitty turned her attention to Wall Street where she excelled in the field of public finance. It was at this point in her life that she met her soon-to-be husband, Colin Probyn. Kitty and Colin were married on October 5, 1986, and soon afterwards moved to St. Thomas, where they raised their beautiful daughters, Lauren and Cameron.
Kitty was a devoted and loving mother who enjoyed involving her children in as many interesting activities as possible; including acting, horseback riding and sailing. As the children grew older, Kitty embarked on another career, this time in real estate.
She will be lovingly remembered as a wise and comforting counselor to her friends and their children, but above all as an amazing mother and an incredible wife to the family she adored, and who also adored her.
Kitty is survived by her husband, Colin Probyn; daughters, Lauren and Cameron; sister, Betsy Berra; and brothers, Bill Koenig and Steve Koenig, and their families.
A memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. Thomas Reformed Church, immediately followed by a celebration of her life at the St. Thomas Yacht Club.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Kitty Koenig-Probyn to the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands, P.O. Box 11790, St. Thomas, USVI 00801.
