Port Protection star Litzi’s death came as a shock to many of her fans and the fans of the show. They enjoyed watching her but more importantly, the viewers could see that even though she seemed alright on the TV show, she would tear up if she started talking about her boys.
We know that Litzi had two sons from her marriage relationship. Sadly, both of them died a while back before she did.
When people were paying tribute, one fan wrote, “She kept it to herself. Lost 2 boys out there, and hurt so bad.” Another fan added: “I remember that she’d tear up when she talked about it she missed them so much but now she’s with them God bless her”.
In 2022, her husband John updated her fans that Litzi has also died.
Fans took notice of her missing on the recent shows, without knowing about her death. In a Facebook group, a fan asked about Litzi and said, “I have missed seeing her. Love to watch her fillet fish.” Litzi’s husband John replied that his wife had died of ovarian cancer.
She reportedly passed away on 25 June 2021 at the age of 62.
Her family added that she “enjoyed beachcombing and just walking on the beach; listening to good music, especially live music; talking to strangers; traveling with her husband in their van; supporting women in any way possible; spreading love.”
Before her death, Litzi also lost her good friend Gary Muehlberger who she knew for 40 years. John opened up in the comment that Gary died three months before Litzi. On that unfortunate day of losing her friend, Litzi visited her doctor for surgery for her ovarian cancer.
