In memoriam: Hildegard Huetzelmann

April 20, 1931- 2023

It is with profound sadness that the Huetzelmann family announces the passing of Hildegard Marie Anna Huetzelmann at the ripe age of 92.

Hilda was born in Alt Wansen, Silesia, Germany, on April 20, 1931, to her parents Josef and Marie Geister. Some of her most fond memories were of her childhood spent with them and her very tight-knit family on the farm. She was proud of their Catholic background.

In 1945, as a young girl, she and her family were displaced from their home as a result of World War II. Among all the tragedies of the war, fragmenting of her family ties had a profound effect on her.

Oma was the epitome of what a mother should be. She will always be remembered for her good nature and family values, her persistent food-pushing, and her storytelling of the old country.

Hilda was predeceased by her youngest son Roland and husband Gerhardt. She is survived by her sons Gary (Sharon), Roy, Brian, William and Joe (Brenda), and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Until next time, Oma, “Auf Wiedersehen.”

Funeral service will be held at 11 am on Friday, February 16, at Stubberfield Funeral Home.

The family would like to thank the staff at Evergreen Extended Care.
