Gerta von Chalaupka Walls

Gerta von Chalaupka Walls passed away peacefully on Monday Nov.30, in a hospital in Vienna. She was 95.

Gerta was a long-time seasonal resident, spending her summers in Aspen and her winters in her native Vienna. A baroness, she came from a family of distinguished artists and restored paintings for world-class museums. She was a great lover and supporter of the arts.

We will always remember Gerta in her glorious colorful dirndls, walking down the hill from her home on Riverside Drive. We will miss spotting her flowery rain hat in the music tent.
