June 17th 2017. In Memoriam: Sigrid Münstermann (74). Today we received a message from Sigrid’s son in law stating that Sigrid passed away this weekend after a short but severe illness. Sigrid attended André Rieu’s concerts in Maastricht often, which she enjoyed to the utmost. She lived in Aachen, just across the  border in Germany and from what I understand is that she devoted her life with her heart and soul to care for her disabled grandson.  May she rest in peace. The photo is from 2014.
