In memoriam: Sigrid Stroux

A- A A+

The EUI is saddened to learn that an alumna of the Law Department, Sigrid Stroux, passed away on Friday, 25 February 2022, surrounded by her family.

Sigrid completed her PhD in the Department of Law under the supervision of Professor Giuliano Amato. She defended her thesis, entitled EC Oligopoly Control, on 31 October 2003.

After completing her PhD, she divided her time between the Netherlands and Italy – the country to which she lost her heart. She had a talent for making friends wherever she set foot and laughter always surrounded her. Even when her ability to move and travel became increasingly impeded, she found ways to stay in contact with her many friends all around Europe, and indeed the world. She will be dearly missed by all.

The words she chose to leave this world will stay with us always:

Don’t grieve for me
I’ve had a beautiful life
It could have lasted a bit longer
But it could not have been any better
It’s fine this way

The EUI extends its deepest condolences and solidarity to her family and all those who mourn her.
