In Memoriam: mumielein

What you just read was what FlyerTalk member mumielein posted in the SAS | EuroBonus forum on Saturday, January 10, 2009 at 5:07 in the afternoon Eastern Standard Time pertaining to a gathering of frequent fliers — and that became the last time she posted on FlyerTalk.

Although mumielein passed away sometime in October of 2020 — the exact date is not yet known, nor the cause of her death, nor has she been identified publicly with her real name — FlyerTalk member and moderator NewbieRunner had announced the sad news on Wednesday, October 21, 2020:

“I was saddened to learn mumielein passed away a few days ago. Although she only posted a few times on FlyerTalk I met her a couple of times at FT/VFT DOs and know she had many friends among FlyerTalkers.”

Having first joined FlyerTalk as a member on Saturday, December 8, 2007, the last activity of mumielein on FlyerTalk was on Friday, May 8, 2009 at 7:10 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time.


I did not know mumielein personally nor do I recall having ever met her or have communicated with her on FlyerTalk — but regardless, the loss of a FlyerTalk member is still sad for me. I really dislike having to mourn yet another fellow frequent flier — no matter when he or she passed away.

Any other information pertaining to mumielein — such as an Internet web site pertaining to remembering details about her life — had been unavailable to me at the time this article was written. I intend to edit and amend this article if any new information becomes available so that she may be properly remembered with a more fitting tribute.

In the meantime, my thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of mumielein. May she rest in peace…
