Remembering Carolyn Marquardt - update 5/27

The Gauverband Nordamerika is deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Carolyn Marquardt, Ehrengaubeisitzer, on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. Carolyn was first appointed to the position of Gaubeisitzer in 1996 by 1. Gauvorstand, Walter Wieand. She was re-elected to the Gauausschuss in that capacity until 2016. She also held the position of Gau-Webmaster during her tenure on the Board. She was named an Ehrengaubeisitzer at the 2017 Executive Board Meeting.

Carolyn was a very beloved Trachtlerin who upheld her "Sitt und Tracht" to the highest degree. Personally, it was always a pleasure to see her smiling face every morning at our Executive Board meetings. She will be sorely missed by all that knew and loved her, especially her husband Reid Champagne.

Ruhe in Frieden.

Tom Vogt, 1. Gauvorstand

Funeral arrangements:

Funeral service on Monday, May 29, 2:30 pm at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 11611 N.E. 140th St., Kirkland, Washington.
