Sigrid R. Amundsen, age 72, of Milford, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 25,2023 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was the wife of Carl Amundsen of nearly 50 years. Born in Brandenburg, Germany. She was the daughter of Hanny Prietzel and the late Erich Prietzel. She graduated from Woodlands High School and attended Berkley Secretarial School in Hartsdale, NY. She worked at IBM, Equitable Life Insurance and Subway World Headquarters where she retired after 17 years. After retiring she would help Carl tend their garden at the Milford Community Gardens for 16 years. She loved bowling especially on a league for many years. The most pleasure of all was helping take care of her Granddaughter Megan. She enjoyed their trips to the beach, picking her up from school, many sleepovers, trips to Carvel on Wednesdays, their shopping trips which always concluded with a stop at Starbucks and overall just spending time with Megan. She enjoyed watching baseball, cheering on the Yankees and Mets, football; Giants and Jets and watching Golf. Siggi and Carl really enjoyed taking many, many Cruises to the Carribean, Mediterranean, and Hawaii.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by her husband, Carl; devoted daughter, Lori and her husband, Ed; granddaughter, Megan; brother, Rainer; niece, Jessica and nephew, Erich; longtime friend since 2nd grade and Lori's godmother, Luule Suozzi and many, many friends.
Mom will be remembered as a sweet, thoughtful, funny, supportive, always there for her family and friends, special lady who will be dearly missed.
Her family would like to thank Dr Zhao Lu of Oncology Hematology Care of Connecticut and the entire staff for their care and support over the years.
