 Anita Tellervo Soderholm Lukka [senior year exchange student from Finland]

Our beloved Professor Anita Tellervo Lukka nee Soderholm born August 9, 1946 in Rauma died May 12, 2009 in Lappeenranta.


The spring rain rinsed the countryside

Nightly full moon and rising sun showed you the way

You glided quietly beyond our reach and the journey (motion) of the clouds continues


With longing Markku [her husband], Tuomas [her son], Solja and Oiva [grandchildren], Maria [daughter], Teemer [son-in-law], Olivia and Nikolas [grandchildren], Birgitta with family, other relatives and friends.  Anita has been laid to rest in the presence of relatives.  We are grateful for the support. Thanks to the Ag staff of the section of EKKS [South Karelian Central Hospital] for the attentive care.
