It appears that there was a mistake about the date of death of Sister Marie-Boniface aka Countess Marie Elisabeth; she didn't die on 29 May - as it was firstly reported - but on 9 June 2012 in Vanves (France).

So she also bereaved two children: Carolin Clara and Leonardo.
And her sister Nicola is married to Dr.Rudolph Trabold and they have a son Leopold.

She married her husband in 1994; I forgot to mention the year.
Poor her children!
