September 11, 1944 - November 19, 2021
Concy B. Rajkumar Age 77 of Edina passed Nov 19, 2021. Concy was born in Sri Lanka and left there in 1971 with her husband Raj for a teaching position at a Twin Cities Montessori school. Concy was urged by parents to start her own school. In 1975, she opened Concy's Montessori School five years before becoming a US citizen. She eventually sponsored two of her siblings to come to the United States. She lost Raj to cancer in 1982. Concy married John in 1992. They traveled the world and enjoyed many Twin Cities foodie spots. John helped with school accounts and enjoyed seeing Concy in action with her students and their families. Concy closed her school in 2011 after teaching countless children and children of her former students. She touched thousands of families--whether directly as teacher or indirectly through education, mentoring, and stewardship. A proud American and Edina resident of more than 50 years, Concy was a child whisperer. Her story was featured in a mid-1990s series by the Edina Historical Society. Family was always her priority and her toddler grandson Remi became the apple of her eye. Her unexpected passing removed one of the brightest lights from our midst. Concy is survived by children Roshini Rajkumar (James Fulton) and Roshan Rajkumar (Jennifer); grandson Remington; step-granddaughters Ally and Emilee; brothers Charles Jey, George Pillai (Ranee); sisters Stella Rajalingam (Raja), Antonette Sinnarajah (Roger): in-laws Mary Knoll, Helen Fitzgerald (David), Franklin Knoll (Margot). Concy is preceded in death by parents William and Theresa; husbands R.S. Rajkumar and John J. Knoll; sisters-in-law Luxmi, Grace Jey, Elizabeth Kane; brother-in-law Bill Kane.
