Long-term Friend of Auroville and AVI member Uschi Ernst, passed away on Sunday 3 May at the age of 80. Her health had been gradually weakening this last half year.
Uschi, and husband Helmut Ernst, have been closely connected to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother since the sixties. They were active members of AVI Germany and would regularly participate in the various AVI meetings in Auroville and/or abroad. They built a house in Grace in the mid-nineties which they co-stewarded throughout the years while yearly visiting for some weeks.
Uschi was an energetic woman, an enthusiast trumpet player, and warmly received visiting Aurovilians in her large, plant & flower rich Frankfurter home.
Our warmest condolences go out to Helmut and their U.K.based daughter Dorothee and family, who will sorely miss her. Be in peace, dear Uschi.
