Messages for the Family of Gubser, Wilhelmina
From: Hane Families
Liebe Nicole und Familien Widmer,
Meine Gedanken sind bei Dir, Nicole und bei Deiner Familie. Wir erinnern uns gerne an Mimi, zur Zeit der Geigenkonzerte, zur Zeit der Edelweiss Bazaare wo Mimi teilgenommen hatte und auch immer eine Spende machte.
Leider kann ich nicht am Begräbnis teilnehmen, ich werde jedoch einen Beitrag leisten ans Montreal Children's Hospital.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Wilhelmina's passing. She was the bedrock of the Widmer family, and her passing is a tremendous loss to the family and to all who know them. In my younger days, I had the honour of being invited to many family events and celebrations where she was in attendance. I remember her quick witted sense of humour (even in English), appreciation of wine and cheeses (especially those from Switzerland), and her dedication to swimming (a daily activity). But, what I will remember most about Wilhelmina is her abundant pride for her family. It was a silent, reserved pride. Perhaps a pride that only someone from outside the family could notice: the way she laughed at JP's jokes or doted over Nicole's hair or nodded with approval when Nicolas kicked a soccer ball into a net. I could go on... It is my understanding that Wilhelmina suffered from memory loss in her later years. I have no doubt whatsoever that her love and pride for her family remained a source of strength for her, even as the rest of her world seemingly melted away. A pride that will live-on eternally as she admires her family from the heavens above.
