Mourning for ski legend Rosi Mittermaier († 72) is great.

After a short, serious illness, she died on January 4th.

She is to be laid to rest in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen – The "Gold-Rosi" could never fully understand the hustle and bustle about her person.

They were characterized by modesty and down-to-earthness.

A world star, without any airs and graces.

Shortly

after the

end of her career, she said:

"Am I an idol?

That's such a big word.

In terms of sport, maybe that's me for some - but basically I haven't achieved anything great.

I haven't discovered any new medicine or anything like that.

I just enjoy it all.

Even now."

On January 4, Mittermaier died of a short, serious illness.

She "slept peacefully surrounded by her family," as her family confirmed the news of death on January 5.

Son Felix Neureuther said goodbye to his mother with moving words.

Funeral of Rosi Mittermaier: Place and date of the burial probably a secret

Many winter sports fans are now wondering when and where the funeral of the former Olympic champion will take place.

However, this apparently remains a secret.

Mittermaier's last wish was not to hold a public funeral service.

She wanted to be buried in the closest circle in her adopted home of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, as Markus Wasmeier, a close family friend,

revealed to the

It is also not known when exactly the ski icon will be buried.

Normally, the deceased are buried between four and ten days after death.

The funeral service will probably take place later this week.
