Obituary of Hildegard Lohr
LOHR, Hildegard (Hilda) (nee Klein)
A loving, caring devoted wife and mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who was also lively and feisty at times has gone to her eternal rest in heaven on August 27, 2020. Predeceased by her husband Gunter in 2014.
Devoted mother to Gerald/Gerry (Nancy); Gabrielle, Linda (predeceased by Tom -1999); Monica (George); Frank (Michelle). Loving grandmother to: Dan (Paula); Stacey (Adam); Marcy (Sam); Lindsay (Dale); Katie (Eric), Stephanie, Sarah, Matthew and Kristina. Great-grandmother to: Luke, Payton, Joelene, Devon, Gwen, Jordan and Sawyer. Predeceased by her parents: Gustav Klein (1956) and Katherina Kuchar (1999); her siblings Sigmund, John, Joseph and Hilda’s twin brother Arnold.
Hilda gave each of her children and grandchildren unconditional love, graciousness and an easy-going nature that endeared her to us all. She thrived on the daily life of her kids and lively discussions were held around the dinner table. Both parents spent Sunday afternoons taking us to parks, to hear music playing, for picnics or simply to hike and enjoy nature.
She babysat her grandchildren at times and delighted in their company, getting to know personalities and the uniqueness of the next generation. Hilda was a good cook and baker. In her walks with her late husband, they both enjoyed the splendor of nature. She spent much time with her grandchildren.
Special thanks to the nurses in the Dialysis Unit for their care and compassion. Many thanks to Dr. Broski who guided our Mother through the years with dedication and concern.
