We have lost of the great genealogists: Rieke was a meticulous
researcher, a powerful speaker, a tireless organiser and one
of the most delightful people you could meet. She and her beloved
husband, Peter, were a focus throughout Australia for genealogy.
Immensely knowledgeable and immensely generous, Rieke provided
hospitality and information whenever she could.
The world genealogical community is very much the poorer for
her passing. She will be remembered affectionately as one of
the icons of our strange community. I mourn her passing and
will always feel privileged that I knew her and had the benefit
of her warmth and wisdom. May her dear soul rest in peace.
