Obituary for Britta S. Remming
Remming, Britta S.F. - passed away on December 27, 2017 at age 92. Predeceased by her beloved husband of nearly 63 years, Tom; devoted and loving mother of Marianne (Michael), John (Joan), Elisabeth (Paul), and Erik; much-loved grandmother of Britt (Tom), Thomas John, Abby, Isabella, and Matthew; beloved great-grandmother of Brynn, Thomas Charles, Jeremiah, and Kara Anne; and dearly loved sister of brother Egon of Brøndby, Denmark.
Britta was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1925.
As a child, she sang in a renowned girls' choir and played the piano, the start of her lifelong love of music. During World War II, she and her family endured the Nazi occupation, and she was active in the civil defense corps, volunteering in air raid shelters. She and Tom married in 1946, and the family immigrated to the United States in 1960. A dedicated mother and homemaker, Britta's greatest joy was gathering the family, upholding and teaching others the traditions of her homeland, which her family lovingly continues. She and Tom were the quintessential hosts, the true embodiment of Danish "hygge". As the respected and dearly loved matriarch of her family, Britta will be greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to the music program at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Britta’s memory.
A celebration of Britta’s life will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 12:00 P.M. at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Pleasantville, NY, followed by interment at Kensico Cemetery.
