    I have been Gisela’s neighbor for more than 16 years. During that time I found Gisela to be a very dedicated mother, a fantastic chef, and a person of many artistic talents. She was also a woman of great conviction and determination. I would also like to extend my condolences to Yasmin and Nico. Gisela will be missed by all who knew her.

    Liebe Gisela,

    Je schöner und voller die Erinnerungen, desto schwerer die Trennung.
    Aber die Dankbarkeit verwandelt die Qual der Erinnerung in eine stille Freude.
    Man trägt das vergangene Schöne nicht wie ein Stachel, sondern wie ein kostbares Geschenk in sich.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    Leider haben wir uns aus den Augen verloren. In letzter Zeit habe ich durch Mama und Hannelore wieder vieles über dich erfahren dürfen.
    Wir haben dann über eure Besuche bei uns in Deutschland gesprochen. Gerne habe ich euch damals mein Zimmer zur Verfügung gestellt. Leider kam es von meiner Seite her aber nie zu einem Gegenbesuch.
    Ich wünsche Yasmin jetzt viel Kraft in dieser schwierigen Zeit und vielleicht schaffen wir es jetzt wieder eine Brücke zu bauen.

    Deine Nichte Vera und Familie

    I got to know Gisela and her daughter Yasmin and their little dog Nico when I would visit in their home and bring communion to Gisela. I so enjoyed our visits with Gisela’s infectious smile and telling me about her life in Germany and in Wisconsin. I know she knew our Lord as we would pray together and talk about her faith. From the time I met her she was very frail but so spunky. Her last years she was in and out of the hospital but she was most comfortable in her bedroom with all the windows, light and her big king size bed. Her long life can be attributed to her loving daughter, Yasmin.
    Yasmin was very devoted to her mom and gave better care than any professional could have given. She devoted her life to making Gisela comfortable. Although she will be missed, we can take comfort knowing we will see her again in Glory. may you rest in peace dear Gisela.

    We have known Gisela and Yasmin for many years. Gisela was a strong but caring woman who suffered from many illnesses . She overcame cancer but moved on to heart issues and many
    other things that left her frail. She had the best smile and boy could she cook. She loved her German heritage and her dogs and mainly her family. She is in a better place now and is probably still looking over all she loved. And Yasmin–we should all be so blessed to have a daughter like her!! Peace

    I have known Gisela, Yasmin, Bianco and Nico for over twenty years while living at Overlook Lakes. I extend my sympathy to the Horvath family and especially to Yasmin who loved her mother so much and took such good care of her. Peace and All Good!

    Niko misses my mom a lot. Niko is our toy poodle and he is 4 years old. My mom and I brought Niko into our home in May 2016. We both love you mom.

    We only just heard about Gisela’s passing. So sorry for your loss, but be comforted by her faith in Christ along with the assurance of a blessed reunion in heaven. Jasmine, you were such a faithful daughter and caregiver to her. God’s blessings and peace be yours.
