Brigitte Charlotte Salkowski, 75, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 41 years, formerly of Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, passed away Tuesday, November 7, 2017 in Cape Coral. She was born January 1, 1942 in Heidelberg, Germany to Felix Denz and Charlotte Johanna Sturmer, now deceased.

Brigitte was a faithful member of Grace United Methodist Church in Cape Coral, where she lovingly attended. She retired from the Lee County School District after 22 years of dedicated service. She had a contagious smile and a sense of humor that brightened the many lives she touched. She was the guiding light to her five children who will be forever grateful. Brigitte and her late husband, Joseph, created beautiful memories with adventurous travels, camping trips, picnics and traditional family gatherings. She was especially fond of Christmas and its meaning, the birth of her Savior, Jesus Christ. She will always be remembered for her caring and generous nature, her soft touch, and words of encouragement, wisdom and her love of God. Her family and friends will forever love and cherish her.

She is survived by five loving children, Cathy Kowanek (Manfred) of North Fort Myers, FL, Robert Salkowski of Cape Coral, Carolyn Salkowski of Cape Coral, Joseph Salkowski of Cape Coral, and Wendy Jackson (David), also of Cape Coral; four siblings, Roswitha Feyrer, Ralph Denz, Robert Denz and Corina Lommatzsch, all of Germany; eleven grandchildren, Robert, Joseph, Samuel, Robert, Kyle, Nathan, Kaitlin, Zachary, David, Aleah, and Lindsy; as well as nine great grandchildren, Lily, Ian, Sadie, Caelan, Kylee, David, Robert, Camden and MacKenzie.
