I spent a lot of time drawing during World War II, as it was dangerous for children to play outside. But it was soon clear that to dream of becoming an artist-painter was almost impossible for a girl. Much later I joined a group of artists, who col- lected money to restore old buildings - by sales of their artwork. They were René Pedretti André Paul Zeller and Daniel Bolle Bauty Rouge Coutaz Wil Burdet Pierre Loye André Raboud and Hubertine Heijermans (Le Chablaisien may '87).
During an auction we col- lected enough money to convince the Municipality of Ollon to not destroy, but to restore the Château de la Roche.
