Among the members of the September 1967 ulpan was a volunteer from Norway, Turid Jenset. She later married Markus Stirnemann and settled in New Zealand. She and Markus raised three children (I believe)and they had a beautiful life. Turid passed away yesterday and those of us who knew her are devastated. If you knew her, you loved her. There was no finer person to grace Kibbutz Matzuva than this volunteer from Europe who came to support Israel and Matzuva. She visited Israel several times in the years that followed. To her husband and children, please know that we are with you in this time of pain and loss and none of us will ever forget her.
Thank you Fred for your posting about the sad loss of our dear friend Turid Stirnemann.
Turid and I shared living quarters during our memorable time in Matzuva. We were very close friends and remained so until this day. Despite living at opposite ends of the Globe, we always remained in touch. Turid is a huge loss to her family and friends, she leaves a big gap in my life and I cannot think that we are now without her. I remember all the good times we had together in Matzuva as if it was yesterday - well over forty years ago now.
My thoughts are with Turid's family at this dreadful time, words are inadequate at such times.

Thanks for posting the sad news of the passing of Turid.
On behalf of all the residents and members of Kibbutz Matzuva we send our sincere
condolences to the family. Although most members did not remember Turid with
many of our senior members having passed away during the last year we all appreciate all the volunteers and ulpan students who stayed and contributed to
the life of our small community.
We have a saying in Hebrew to the bereaved "We wish that you are not burdened with such grief in the future"
