March 15, 1944 - September 20, 2021
Evelyn “Evie” (Piedimonte) Komanecky, 77, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 20, 2021. She was born in Syracuse, daughter of the late Cosmo and Maria (DiIorio) Piedimonte. Evie grew up in Solvay and resided in Camillus. She graduated from SUNY Albany and SU. Evie taught for nearly 50 years in the North Syracuse Central School District including Gillette Rd., North Syracuse High School, and for many years at the North Syracuse Junior High School as a reading teacher. She had a passion for teaching students who struggled the most; she focused on her student’s individual skills and interests, always encouraging them to expand their horizons through upbeat, creative reading materials and learning activities she provided for them. For many years, Evie volunteered to lead Builders Club, a student service group which supported several local organizations such as Vera House, the Octagen House, SPCA, and the Sunshine Club, which supports teachers at the Junior High. She was an avid dog lover, and fell in love with the dog breed, a Coton de Tulear several years ago and enjoyed sharing their unique background with others as her family owned eight over the years. Evie was a mesmerizing and embellishing storyteller of events related to her education, teaching career and personal adventures. She always stood firm and defended what she felt was in the best interest of her students, friends, and family. After retirement, she enjoyed playing cards with work friends, Bible study, and going to the theater. She also enjoyed entertaining and cooking and was famous for her home-made chocolate chip cookies. Evie had a vibrant, out-gong and vivacious personality and to know her was to love her. She will always be remembered as a dedicated and strong-willed woman and will be truly missed. In addition to her parents, she is also predeceased by her husband, James Komanecky; her sister, Felice Ferris and her two dogs, Tia and Ceasar. Evie is survived by her son, David Komanecky; her daughter, Jennifer (Ryan) Brundin; her grandson, Jaxon Brundin; a sister, Antoinetta Corp; her beloved Coton de Tulears, Layla and Leo, currently living with her nephew and wife, Tom and Alex Corp.
