Only a few month before her exam as a Diplom Ingenieurin, her father died after a servere illness at the age of 69 years. Althrough she wanted to practise her profession in Milan. But she had to take a different path. She attended the scool of masterchip in Düsseldorf and at the age of 26. She was the only undertaker and cabinetmaker in Germany to pass her master`s examination. Together with her mother, she ran the joinery, uppolstery, decoration workshop, furniture store with design, architecture office and funeral parlour.
