Delaware, Ohio

Elke D. Graber, age 76 of Delaware, OH, passed away Sunday, November 17, 2019, in Delaware. She was born October 5, 1943 in Stuttgart, Germany to the late Joachim Ridder and Sophie Hornberger.

Left to cherish Elke’s memory are her daughter, Saskia Cahal; son, Andrew Graber; grandchildren: Katie Cahal, Reilly Cahal, Miranda Campbell, and Madilyn Graber; great-grandchildren: Lacie and Legend Campbell; brother, Frederic Hornberger; sister, Susanne Raphael; former son-in-law, Brian Cahal; and several other relatives and friends.

Elke was an accountant by trade, having operated as an independent consultant. She loved to read, play solitaire, go for walks, cook, garden, and her canine companions, Charlie and Bruno. She shared a mutual adoration for her grandchildren, who felt that she was the most amazing Oma. Elke could always be counted on to be there for those she cared about.  More than anything, she enjoyed spending time with her family.

The family is planning a memorial service for a later date.
