Henriette Imesch

Born on July 19, 1955 in Schaffhausen. After graduation from the University of Zürich, she became an attorney. She met her husband, Albert, in 1982 while on a special project at the company he was an executive with. They both move to the US in 1992, as he got transferred from Switzerland. His job led them to live and make friends in different places: New York City, Cincinnati, OH, Wilmington, DE and then in Salt Lake City, UT, and Oakley, UT, where they retired. She had a passion for languages and taught at OOLI, the Academy of Lifelong Learning, in Wilmington, DE, and provided private lessons to several teenagers helping them develop their skills. She passed away peacefully at home in Oakley, UT, on December 4, 2020, surrounded by her husband and friends. Henriette and Albert joined the New Helvetic Society and the Swiss Benevolent Society of Philadelphia in 2006 while living in Wilmington, DE.

On behalf of the Swiss communities we extend heartfelt condolences to the Imesch family and May Henriette Rest In Peace.
