It must have been difficult days for folk music icon Heino. The musician was worried about his wife Hannelore. As the “Bild” newspaper Now reported, the 81-year-old died a few days ago in their shared house in Kitzbühel, Austria.
Hannelore suffers cardiac arrest in her marriage bed – funeral in a small circle
Heino was in Berlin at the time, recording the TV show “Kiwi’s Big Party Night” when he received the sad news that his partner’s health had deteriorated. As the “Bild” newspaper writes, she suffered a sudden cardiac arrest in her marriage bed.
As the “Bild” newspaper Further reported, Hannelore Kramm was buried early Wednesday morning in a very small circle in a cemetery in Kitzbühel. The singer placed 44 red roses on her grave – one for each year he was married to her. According to the paper, it was tradition for Heino to give Hannelore red roses on her wedding anniversary.
Big service planned for Hannelore
Heino wanted to say goodbye to his wife along with a few others. However, his manager tells “Bild”: “The incredible number of condolences give Heino comfort and touch him very much.” A large church service is planned for next year “in which all her friends can take part.”
Heino and Hannelore were a couple for half their lives. The two met 46 years ago and married two years later. They met in 1972 while filming the film “Blue Blooms the Gentian”. At that time, Hannelore was still married to the noble Prince Alfred von Auersprang. This marriage lasted from 1968 to 1979.
