As Hilde prepared for many vacations to visit family and friends, she would fret and fuss with packing to make sure she had every contingency covered.
For this final trip to eternal life, she knew she was perfectly prepared. She had the forgiveness; the compassion and the love of and for Jesus Christ, she left peacefully.
Hilde is survived by soul-mate and husband Larry Neuman; loving son Stephen Slezak and his wife Crissy Cantu and the greatest Joy of Hilde’s life, grandson Ford Slezak.
Remaining to grieve are Hilde’s mother Helene Kuczmarski; sisters Irene Bedard and Lydia McGarrity.
She will be missed by the large extended families of both Hilde’s mother (Helene Kuczmarski) and Larry’s mother the late Nelda Neuman.
Hilde had many friends in the local knitting community who visited and offered support during her battle with cancer. A special thank you to Father Phil Reilly of St. Louis Parish for his visit and blessing.
Hilde treasured the friendship and time spent with Sally Gray (Regina) and I am very grateful for her continuing support and assistance.
Due to the North America wide location of family and friends, several small Celebrations of life will be held later with her remains spread amongst the Bluebonnets in Austin, Texas.
