Feb. 17, 1921 - Mar. 5, 2013
Brigitte "Gitta" Sotter, 92, of Sarasota, passed peacefully on March 5, 2013.
Born February 17, 1921 in Breslau, Germany. Immigrated to the United States in 1954, moved to Casey Key in 1956, became a naturalized citizen in 1959.
Survived by daughter, Carola Bieder-Spillers of Sarasota, son, Richard Sotter of Tallahassee, and grand-daughter, Rosemary Bloch of Sarasota.
Brigitte loved to travel and enjoyed good food. She volunteered at the St. Boniface Thrift Shop, and enjoyed brunches with "the ladies". She had a kind heart and found a haven here in Sarasota, on Siesta Key with it's abundant wildlife and beautiful beaches with magnificent sunsets. If you watch closely, you'll see her smile in the green flash.
