Gudrun “Gundi” Brigitte Sigrid Hedwig Thomas was born on May 17, 1954, in Gaildorf, Germany, to Hans-Robert and Isolde Margarete Emilie Lydia (Raab) Thomas. She grew up in and attended school in Germany. After high school, she trained to be a nurse while working various jobs.

On November 3, 1978, Gundi was united in marriage to Robert Prince in Heilbonn, Germany. The couple made their home in Florida and Georgia, before moving to Cold Spring, Minnesota. They raised three children: Jessica, Chris, and Corina, and shared nearly 40 years of marriage together. She was a devoted homemaker and mother. Bob and Gundi moved to Marshall a couple years ago to be near family.

Her enjoyments in life included reading, listening to music, and dancing. She was a great cook who often whipped something delicious out of nothing and loved to feed her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Hans-Robert and Isolde Thomas, and 4 miscarried babies.

Blessed be her memory.
