Funeral Services For OWT 16/11/2010

OWT Dear all,

Due to the large amount of attendees to the funeral ceremony of Oliver Wessel-Therhorn (on Monday, November 22, 2010 at 11:00 a.m.) the church location has been changed to another church:

An der Apostelkirche 1, (street)
(corner of Neubrückenstraße)
48143 Münster
parking possibility available in the Tibus parking house.

After the funeral ceremony refreshments and a light meal/snack has been arranged in the dance club of:

Residenz Münster (Tanzsportzentrum), 
Hansestraße. 74, 
48165 Münster-Hiltrup, 
phone: 02501 - 924626

A contingent of rooms has been reserved in the Mercure Hotel Münster City from Sunday 21st to Monday 22nd and can be booked directly with the code „Trauerfeier Oliver Wessel-Therhorn“.

For administration purposes we kindly ask you for an urgent reply, if you intend to attend the funeral ceremony, preferably by mail to Sabine Hey,

IDSF has received a letter from friends of Oliver Wessel-Therhorn writing on behalf of his family. It is addressed to all those who knew OWT and contains information on the funeral services that will be held on 22/11/2010. IDSF reproduces it here, hoping that many will donate to Oliver's children, Rebecca and Raphael.

Dear dancers,

Our wonderful and unique „Olli“, Oliver Wessel-Therhorn, passed away very suddenly on November 12, 2010 after a long and brave fight against his severe illness. On behalf of the family a funeral ceremony is held on


Monday, November 22, 2010 at 11:00 a.m.

in the Pfarrkirche St. Joseph,

Münster – Kinderhaus (City of Munster)

Kinderhaus Nr. 14

The burial will be held later in a closed private family ceremony.

Due to limited space in the church and for administration purposes we kindly ask you for your reply if you intend to attend the funeral ceremony.
