What caught my attention is the bit of text at the bottom, which asks for a donation to charity instead of flowers. I wasn't aware such a request (not in the Netherlands) is also a German thing. How's that in other parts of the world?

I would say the vast majority of funerals in England now request "family flowers only", and donations to a specified charity from other mourners.

I just learned that Marina von Ditmar, best known for playing Sophie von Riedesel in Herr Goebbels' 1940s version of Münchhausen is still alive at the grand old age of 97. She only has a German Wikipedia page, not an English one, so the chances of a UK obit are virtually nil but I'll put her on the list above anyway.

Hardly a recent death but police confirm a body found in June was Yoo Bgung-eun, boss of the ferry firm involved in the disaster in South Korea.

In related news: South Korean prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the captain of the Sewol ferry, Lee Joon-seok. That may cheer up cpt Schettino a bit.
