Who is the grand lady of the Peace Missions, Katrin Bornmüller?
She was born on July 4, 1940 in Halberstadt, Germany. Today at the age of 78, she comes between us with a wide-ranging activity, thanks to her commitment from an early age, with strong ambitions for her life and career. In 1958–1959, she attended the English and French exams and subsequently worked as Foreign Correspondent and Groundhostess at Deutsche Lufthansa Frankfurt.
In September 1961 she married Hermann Bornmüller (Forstassessor). Until 1968, she continued to work in Trier and Wittlich. From marriage, the couple Bornmüller rejoices with four children, one girl born in 1962, one boy in 1964, one girl in 1967, and another boy in 1974. In 2014, Mrs. Katrina remains widow.
