Waltraut von Arnauld de la Perrière
Waltraut von Arnauld de la Perrière (nee Neuendorf) predeceased by her husband Horst von Arnauld de la Perrière, passed away quietly on May 26, 2017. Born in Berlin, Germany, she came to America on March 16, 1954 on Ms. Gripsholm with her two young daughters to join her husband. The family's first home was in Hawthorne, NJ until 1956 and subsequently moved to Oakland where she lived for 58 years prior to moving to Mt. Arlington Senior Living in NJ.
She will be missed by her daughters, Angelique von Arnauld with her partner Pasco Perrelly JR and Bettina Mason PhD with her husband Eugene, Grand-daughter Marcella Lasslett with her husband Mark, Grandson Brian Gerba with his wife Evonne, Great-great children and extended family members - Heather Elicia Lasslett, Brianna Katherine Prada, Abagaile Brittany Gerba, Christopher Brian Gerba, John Michael Gerba, Israel Raymond Soto and Robert Prada.
Passionate about all animal welfare, Waltraut enjoyed her numerous indoor and outdoor pets. Generations of raccoons that frequented her hospitality will miss her as well. She enjoyed many cultural activities throughout her long life. Monthly Broadway shows in NYC were attended with Horst for decades. In later years she attended shows, plays and concerts at William Paterson University in Wayne, Rhino Theater in Pompton Lakes, and Korean Presbyterian Church via the Oakland Public Library - street fairs, outdoor concerts, walks and lunches with her home care provider-Mary.
She enjoyed playing the piano and often accompanied Horst on the accordion or organ when the family got together. Back yard swimming and barbeques with the family were week-end activities for many years.
Waltraut traveled extensively with Horst throughout the world.
