Oct. 1, 1916 — Jan. 24, 2018
Gabrielle von Kahrs, 101, passed away Thursday, Jan. 24. She was born Oct. 1, 1916, in Cleveland, Ohio. Gabi married the late Hans von Kahrs on June 2, 1958, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Gabi moved to St. George, Utah, from Southern California in 2012 after a multifaceted career as a stylist in the advertising and fashion industries. She was a talented watercolor artist who enjoyed painting, sketching and teaching art to her friends at Spring Gardens Senior Living where she resided.
She loved playing the organ and visiting with her many friends. Her whimsy and playful sense of humor delighted everyone who met her. She was an inspiration to all and taught by example how to age with humor and dignity.
In lieu of flowers, Gabi would ask that you make a donation to an art or music program for children here in St. George.
- A celebration of Gabi’s life is planned for Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 7 pm at Spring Gardens Assisted Living, 2554 E. Red Cliffs Drive, St. George.
