From the site of the Dutch Basenji Club:
_Demise of our Chairwoman Jennifer Gielisse:
With great sadness the news arrived today that our chairwoman and co-founder of
?The Basenji Club Netherlands, Jennifer Gielisse passed away in hospital.
She died at the age of 57 years.
Jennifer was someone who did not walk away from any confrontation.
Because of her commitment to the breed, she was one of the main forces in getting
the Brindle color to be recognized within FCI.
The Basenji Club Netherlands shall miss her knowledge within the Breed,
particularly in her breeding program.
We will also miss the passion she has for the Basenji and the Club.
We wish her family lots of courage with
their loss, and in the upcoming grieving process.
Board of The Dutch Basenji Club_
Rest in peace, Jennifer
It's so sad.. she wasn't ready to go
We just had spoken to her on the phone a few days before she died.. she should call us back for something but that won't happen anymore..
She still had so much plans and ideas for her breeds..
Rest in peace… thanks for everything you teached us Jennifer..
To all of you that knew her, condolences sent your way on her passing. It sounds as if she has left you all a wonderful legacy.
Hugs and prayers from the States, and blessings to her family.
Soulmate, IMHO the rainbow bridge thread would have been a fine tribute for her. I plan to meet all my 'family' there when my time comes. 2 and 4-leggers.
