Cruse joins tributes to Sir Sigmund Sternberg Order of St John KCSG

Cruse Bereavement Care is saddened to hear of the death of Sir Sigmund Sternberg at the age of 95.

Sigmund Sternberg was involved with Cruse for 38 years, initially through many years of service on the Cruse Council as Honorary Treasurer until 1992 and subsequently through his generosity to Cruse as donor, a fundraiser and as a valued Patron for more than 20 years. In this capacity he attended the Cruse Golden Jubilee celebration and was presented to Her Majesty The Queen. Sir Sigmund took a close interest in Cruse’s service development and work with bereaved people until shortly before his death.     

He was a remarkable and inspirational man who made a significant contribution to our charity and to the lives of bereaved people and we offer our condolences to his family at this time.

Her Majesty  the Queen and Sir Sigmund Sternberg
