April 27, 1937 - June 4, 2021
Angelina Thys, a beloved member of the Fellowship of Friends, died peacefully in her sleep on Friday, June 4, 2021.
Angelina was born April 27, 1937 and lived to be 84 years old. She joined the Fellowship in 1996. The students in Brussels wrote that their hearts are filled with gratitude for the beautiful years of friendship and that Angelina deeply cared about the School and Robert. Her presence and valuation were consistent and lively, as students who visited her in Belgium over the years were able to note.
On behalf of all who knew you, we thank thee.
In loving presence,
for the Elysian Society

Memorial Service Text: Angelina Thys Memorial Service September 2021
God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night.
These are the words we dimly hear:
You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing.
Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in….
Don’t let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life.
You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand.
Rainer Maria Rilke
