i remember the kindness, generosity and genuine interest that marguerite saegesser had shown to me and my family in the times i lived at her homes in bern, switzerland, and short visits in palo alto.
she was the godmother to my daughter, michele graedel-dimmer. she hosted michele as she was a student in cal-berkeley. we will all remember her, her art and her personality forever.

in loving memory,linda graedel

Two of Marguerite's big pieces have lived on the walls of my house for more than 20 years -- her legacy makes me smile every day.
