It is with sadness that I heard today that after having been ill for some time, Marianne Kouwenhoven, former administrator of some of these boards, silently passed away last night, in her sleep.
Marianne was a character, in a way typically Dutch, with the tongue on her sleeve, always ready to rebuke someone if need be, but dedicated to these boards for many, many years, working for them 24/7 and making friends all over the world in the process. She will surely be missed.
May she rest in peace.
Quite shocked to learn of your passing by word of your beloved son last thursday.Difficult to come around.
Thank you very much for all your work on the boards,and for our friendship throughout the years Marianne.
I am so gratefull to have been able to talk to you only two weeks ago today.
Fun and laughter and a `we call again soon`!
Sincere condolences to the children,their families and all her friends.
Rest in Peace dear Marianne.
