After a short health related struggle our beloved mother grandmother and great grandmother has passed into the arms of god. Born on March 7, 1919 in the Rhein-Ruhr area of Germany, she was married to Naval Officer Heinz and gave birth to two boys: Heinz-Joachim and Manfred (Michael).
The unfortunate and sudden passing of her husband in 1988 left her alone and without a partner for the rest of her life. She made it her her purpose to always be there for her children and grandchildren of which Heinz Joachim produced two (Stefan and Florian), which produced four and one respectively.
Hildegard was buried at sea as requested in her last wish and her ashes where given to the endless body of water in a private ceremony by her family.
