FRIENDS THAT WILL BE MISSED
Wayne Carpenter, Chesterton & Laverne Niksch, Portage:
WINI MORSCHES of Columbia City , was a constant source to strive and to soar. She was slight in stature but huge in heart, beautiful inside and out, artistically accomplished, and humble. Wini was a true lady who was always able to prioritize her choices to accommodate the ones she loved. Her family was her pride and joy and they could never doubt their importance in her life. The world is a better place for knowing such a lovely lady. As 7 NT is a grand slam, Wini Morsches was a Grand Lady. She will be missed.
FAYE ANDERSON of Schererville
has passed away at the age of 98. She was a long-time devotee of the fascinating game of bridge until failing vision and a myriad of health issues prevented her from continuing on. She vowed that she would play bridge until she became a Silver Life Master (with 168 more points to go) or until she became 100 years. Sad to say - she didn't fulfill either aspiration.
Nora Mae Allen, 91, of Elkhart, played at the South Bend Bridge Club some years ago on the 399er side of the room.She was always gracious, and we are sorry to see that she will no longer be with us.
Dick Klitzke, 88,was a formidable partner and opponent who seemed to come up with just the right bid and play. He and his wife, Doris, were regulars at the South Bend club for many years.He was a Silver Life Master but played like a Diamond LM. We will miss his gentleness and smile.
