Born on July 23, 1948, Nonnenmacher was the mother of six daughters: Rafaela, Graziela, Gabriela and Raquel, along with Gisele and her fraternal twin sister, Patrícia.

Nonnenmacher played a vital role in jumpstarting her daughters’ careers by enrolling Gisele, Patrícia and Gabriela in a modeling course that taught posture and gave them confidence.

At the end of the course, the trio was rewarded with a trip to Rio de Janeiro, where Bündchen was discovered by Elite Model Management — the rest was history.

Earlier this month, Bündchen revealed that her mother’s ongoing health issues inspired her to change her diet.

“I want to live the longest feeling the best that I can, but for me to achieve this, I have to make decisions today,” she explained to Harper’s Bazaar. “I want to live the longest feeling the best that I can, but for me to achieve this, I have to make decisions today.”

In 2022, Bündchen wished her mother a happy birthday in a heartwarming Instagram post.

“Happy birthday Mom,” wrote the former Victoria’s Secret model. “I am forever grateful for all that you have done and continue to do for us.”

“Thank you for always loving, inspiring and teaching us,” she added. “Thank you for giving me life! Love you so much!”

Nonnenmacher — a retired bank clerk who resided in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul with her husband, Valdir, 74 — appeared on the cover of Vogue Brazil with Bündchen in 2018.

GZH reports a wake is planned for Monday at the Ecumenical Chapel of the Metropolitan Crematorium in Porto Alegre, with a farewell ceremony set for later in the day.
