We would like to express our condolences in this time of sorrow. Severa was a great friend and traveling companion of mothers for many years. They certainly had some very memorable adventures together traveling the world. They shared the same life-long philosophy of "Faith, Family and Friends" being their guide. May God Bless!

Severa Muench Family,
You have my Sympathy. The Hessil Family lived just south of the Person Family from the 1920-s till the mid 1950-s. I remember Severa coming to visit my Mother & would bring her magazines. My mother Ethel passed away in 1996 at age 91.My mother, my wife & I stopped to see Severa in the early 1990-s.

Seventy five years ago, we lived next door to her father and Severa and mother were friends. I have a picture of standing in front of Severa on our school picture in Koepenick. I was about 5 years old. Mother spoke highly of Severa. May I offer my condolences.
