Sad year-end for astronaut Claude Nicollier, as unofficial sources from Switzerland report the wife of Nicollier passed away December 28th 2007 at age 62 after a short illness.

The Swiss website Hommages has printed an obituary for Susana Perez Nicollier (English translation via Google).

Sad news indeed. Nicollier has a website.

Claude Nicollier was recently interviewed on a local tv channel, a show which focuses on personalities with extraordinary careers and accomplishments. I remember him saying that the only regret he had about his astronaut career was it took him away too often from his family and he wished that he'd had more time to spend with them, something he was planning to do now that he was "retired"...
