Very sorry to read this.
It was nearly impossible to "scoop" Marianne on these boards. But what fun to receive a comment from her which led to a longer more interesting thread of discussions. May she rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon her.
So very sorry to hear this. Marianne was a stalwart of these boards, especially the Benelux one, for so many years (for much longer than I've been a member) and administered so many of them. It had occurred to me that we hadn't heard from her for a while and, sadly, now we know why.
RIP Marianne. You will be much missed!!!
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.
