Irmgard Hainz †
We only recently learned that Irmgard Hainz died on 30/03/2019.

She was a much liked member of the GEA for so many years, participating in different events like dinners, concerts, cross country skiing, mountain hikes, country walks, wine evenings, beer-garden visits, trips to Gardasee, etc.

In recent times we did not see her so much anymore. The reason was so well to understand as she was battling with cancer for ten years and did not want to encourage sympathies. Instead, she appreciated being treated like a healthy person.
Her inevitable passing allowed Irmgard to plan all that would be involved with her death including to pick the place of her final rest: a small spot in the Parkfriedhof in Ottobrunn on a lawn under a small boulder.

Irmgard was one of a kind, always friendly, well organized, disciplined and with never a bad word to say about others. We will miss her. She will stay in our memory; our thoughts are with her and her family.

Ute, Jim, Harald
