UHDE, ELKE (OSTI) JUNE 30, 1940 – FEBRUARY 25, 2015
“If I should go before the rest of you,
break not a flower nor inscribe a stone;
Nor, when I am gone speak in a Sunday voice,
But be the usual selves that I have known.
Weep if you must, Parting is Hell,
But life goes on, so sing as well.”
By Joyce Grenfel
Dieter lost the love of his life. Debbie, Brenda, Terry and Kelly lost their Mom. Ashley, Jamie and Duncan lost their Oma. Christel and Marte lost their sister. Elke was predeceased by her parents at a very early age, and by her young son Ricky in 1988. In respecting Elke’s wishes she was cremated and there will be no service and no flowers please. The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to all those involved in our mother’s care. A very special thank you to Dr. Steinruck and Sylvi for their exceptional kindness.
“With love to my family and friends:
Life for me has truly passed.
I loved you all to the very last.
Weep not for me,
But courage take and love one another for my sake.”
