#1: Chalet girls now at peace... Author: Laura V, Location: Czech RepublicPosted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 4:22 pm Could anyone tell me which Chalet girls had died by the end of the series and when they died? I can only think of Luigia Di Ferrara and one of the Mercier sisters (can't remember which!), but I'm sure there's someone else. Thanks!

#3: Author: Alison H, Location: ManchesterPosted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 5:06 pm Jeanne le Cadoulec died when the ship in which she was leaving Brittany sank.
Suzanne Mercier died during the war - she was thrown out of her house when she was weak after just having had a baby, and she got a cold and died of it ( ).
Maureen O'Donovan was at St Scholastika's not the CS, but she died of rheumatic fever just before the war if that's any help!

#5: Author: Miriam, Location: Jerusalem, IsraelPosted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 6:00 pm There are non-specific references to the fact that quite a few of them might have died during WW2. Jo mentions in 'Joey and Co in Tyrol' that one reason the Peace League document is so precious is that may of those who signed it are now beyond their reach. Miss Annersley donates a window on the chapel those girls who were 'called to higher service'.
#6: Author: JayB, Location: SE EnglandPosted: Sun Sep 10, 2006 6:18 pm One of the Herbert girls was killed in a car accident. We hear about it about it some time afterwards when Con, I think, talks about it. But I'm not sure that she was ever actually a pupil, although her sisters were.

She does appear briefly at St Briaval's, in Shocks, I think, as a mischevious middle, but is said to have been killed at age 14, before coming to Switzerland.
