The Sad News

Posted by International Inner Wheel | May 04, 2018 |

A familiar voice is still.
Someone who was always there, is no more.

What remain are thankful memories
That can never be taken away.

                       (Translation from Dietrich Bonhoeffer)


 Ute Peithmann-Koch

It is with the deepest sorrow that we take leave of our friend Ute Peithmann-Koch National Representative Inner Wheel Germany  ( 09.12.1952 - 29.04.2018 )

Ute Peithmann-Koch always applied herself to Inner Wheel's objectives with intense verve and strong commitment, whether as Chairman of her own Club, of District 90 or as National Representative for Germany for 2017/18.

She had just come back from the International Inner Wheel Convention in Melbourne as head of the German delegation. She attended charter celebrations, District Committee Meetings and international meetings in Gent, Varese and Varna. Her motto was: "Act together - help together". It was a creed she put into practice with enthusiasm. As friend and mentor, she was a cordial, warm-hearted person, who always took the time to listen. People were always her focus of attention. She rendered outstanding services to Inner Wheel Germany.

We shall sorely miss her and our thoughts go to her family at the moment. She will always have a place in our hearts.
