My Grandmother was a very intellectual Lady, she speaks five languages and was working as interpreter. She finished work with age 70.
She liked doing needlework, knitting, chrocheting.
She was cooking very special Bulgarian food.
During the WWII she was Red Cross Nurse and fleed 1945 from Bulgaria with the last Red Cross Train to Austria.
She lived in Vienna from 1945 to 1978. Than she lived in Linz near my parents in a old-age-home.

My Grandmother loved her husband very much, she called him "Freddy" and she was a very considerate Wife.

Thank you very much to SAYMME for sponsoring the grave - it means so much for me.
