Irmgard Koch-Richter, an eminent FKK leader and wife of the late Adolf Koch (1897-1970) passed away on August 10 at the age of 86. Since 1951 she had been behind her husband and collaborator to his untimely death in 1970.

Irmgard had a passionate interest in gymnastics and sports and held gymnastic exercises au naturel in clubs all over Europe.

In 1990 she joined Lee Baxandall in the international naturist meeting at Belezy, France, and the next year she attended the IV International Sports Meeting at Sziksósfürdő FKK-camping in the south of Hungary.

Judit and I were pleased to welcome this fine lady on the grounds and enjoy her gymnastics. Irmgard, a woman with a striking personality, won over the guests of the camping at once. She had taken with her a number of black and white pictures of her late husband and souvenirs from the Berlin-based club Familien-Sport-Verein Adolf Koch e.V. Irmgard was an honorary president of the said club.

We shall miss her! May God rest her soul!
