Obituary - Mrs. Hanne Sofie Sneum

The Board of FIFe was informed that the International All Breed Judge Mrs. Hanne Sofie Sneum (DK) died today, the 2nd of February 2019 at the age of 67 years. Mrs. Sneum, who had Siamese cats since childhood, joined the cat fancy in 1972 and has been breeding Sacred Birmans under the cattery name Sofie’s for many years. She was actively involved in the Danish cat clubs in various positions. She passed her judges examination in category I in 1985, II in 1989, IV in 1996 and III in 2000. Hanne Sofie was a great promotor of the Sacred Birman, always willing to share the knowledge of her breed. She will be remembered as the lady with a big smile on her face, enjoying the company and judging of cats. The Board of FIFe extends its sincere condolences to Mrs. Sneum’s family and friends and to the Danish FIFe Member Felis Danica.
By order of the Board,
Eric Reijers – FIFe General Secretary
