According to, their marriage was short-lived, from 1966 to 1977, but they had two children. They wanted to invite the Eurovision Song Contest enthusiasts to their club meeting in Munich ten years ago, as they now report. “She was really excited about our invitation over the phone, but was very anxious about an intercontinental flight – she’s lived in Florida since the 80s – in the winter and canceled it for the time being. A subsequent severe lung disease unfortunately made it impossible to visit us.”
