Obituary for

Margit Barrera

We are deeply saddened by the unexpected death of our dear employee, colleague and friend Margit Barrera.

Margit was always friendly, reliable and humorous with a calm charisma, that enriched the atmosphere at the Iwalewahaus. 

Days started well, when Margit greeted you at the reception desk, where news were exchanged  along with friendly words and her two trusted companions, dogs Chinook and Sunny formed part of the welcoming committee. It is hard to imagine Margit without the two of them. Cherished and delicious were the gumbos she cooked for our team meetings. Unfortunately, she could not keep her promise that she would cook it until we got tired of it.

In silent mourning we say goodbye to our employee and colleague

Mrs. Margit Barrera

who passed away unexpectedly on 23 December 2022 at the age of 61.

Margit Barrera had been employed at Iwalewahaus since July 2019, where she worked at the reception desk. We have come to appreciate her as a dedicated, reliable and always helpful employee and colleague whose translations have helped us time and again. We will always honour her memory.

Our deepest sympathy goes to her family and all her relatives.

On behalf of the entire Iwalewahaus team

Ulf Vierke and Sigrid Horsch-Albert
