May Ebba rest in peace

Ebba von Fersen Balzan has passed away. May she rest in peace.

I didn't know her much, but from the few times I met her, it was evident that she was so nice and colourful.

Though German, she loved Malta. Only a few months ago, my partner Maria and I participated in meetings of the critical discussion think-tank, of which Ebba was one of the coordinators on behalf of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (Germany) and the Centre for Labour Studies (University of Malta). Here Ebba really showed how much she wished the best for Malta.

Condolences go to her husband Saviour Balzan and to her family and friends.

(Ebba's funeral is going to be held on Wednesday 19 March at St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Valletta at 2pm)

ah, condolences to Saviour. Hope the memories with his wife give him solace and peace.
Never knew her, but it is very sad to hear the news anyway! :(
