Up until her death she was still quite active, attending the artist
Gunda Jakoby’s showing of her pen and ink drawing on the life and work
of Grete von Zieritz. Though her eyesight was very bad, she was able to
carefully and concentratedly study at the drawing at close range, grasp
its story and intention. After a long time she said "it is very well
composed". Early October 2001 she even travelled to attend the opening
of an exhibition in her honor in Vienna, Austria.
