Digna Hintzen - fotograaf onbekend

Digna loved flowers, it said on the funeral announcement. And flowers loved her. The choir of the Kievitkerk in Wassenaar, where her farewell service was held on February 16, was completely covered with flower arrangements, while the sun shone through the windows of a packed church. The whole service was marked with tremendous gratitude for Digna's adventurous life, but there was also the sense of disbelief that so suddenly she was no longer there. During the musical intervals photos were projected of a joyous and lively Digna, amidst family and friends.
