One of the many things Roni told me is she along with her mom would paint themselves green when they were doing rituals in the woods. The green paint was used to camouflage themselves in order to hide their identity. Roni told me that her band of Witchcraft was much older than what we see today. Although her shop carried most of the modern books on Witchcraft and the occult her approach was from a much older tradition. Before Roni died she let me borrow one of her books on The Craft and it was more of a history book than a book on spells and magic. It was a collection of Witch lore and practices during the middle ages. I regret that I’m not able to recall the title here but if you are willing to study the pre Christian spiritual practices of Scotland you should know and understand much of what was written in this book.
Unfortunately Ronis life came to a tragic end Halloween night 1999. Roni and her husband gave a public Halloween party which I attended but later that night she was brutally murdered by her husband over a domestic dispute. I will always cherish the many things I learned from Roni and The Garden City League of Witches. I will also cherish the many things I have learned reading the published books and CD by Gundalla. These books are a part of Michigan history and hopefully they will never go out of print. I will always remember Roni and Gundella, they both played an important part in my development as a young Witch living in the heart of the Motor City.
