In Memoriam: Doris Ritzi, “Mother of all Angeleno-Swiss”

with 2 comments

With great sadness, the Angeleno-Swiss community had to say goodbye to one of the most beloved members of our “Little Switzerland”. (eulogy)

Long before blogs existed, Doris brought the community together with her widely read Newsletter and her active participation at every Swiss event in southern California.

We salute you, Doris – and know you are resting in peace, among the many Angels that make up this beautiful city you called home for most of your life.

All your friends, colleagues and loved ones will think of you often and remember your picture taking, article writing and bright feisty spirit.

Please enjoy this 2009 SwissTV special about Doris, the first Swiss Consular Secretary in Los Angeles.
