After the death of keroncong composer Gesang, now Indonesia again lost one of its best people. The wife of former Indonesian president BJ Habiebie, Hasri Ainun Habiebie, died on Saturday afternoon in Germany of colon cancer. She was 72 years old.

Mrs Habiebie was hospitalized at Ludwing-Maximilians-Universitat, Klinikum Grohadern, Munich since March 23, 2010. She had had a string of surgeries. After having treatments in the past two months, she finally died surrounded by her family and close relatives, a family spokesman said.

"Pak Habiebie thanked all Indonesian people who had prayed for Ibu Hasri," Ahmad Watik Pratiknya, the family spokesman, said on Metro TV. Watik and other relatives had gathered at the family home in Jakarta. Habiebie had always stayed by the side of the former first lady since she was admitted to the hospital. They had been married for 48 years. The remains would be flown to Indonesia with the presidential plane as soon as possible. The plane would depart Sunday. Leaving 2 children, Mrs Habiebie would be buried at Kalibata Heroes Cemetery in South Jakarta.

Good bye, Mrs Habiebie!
