Hilda (Wagner) Wussow, 89, Hudson, Wisconsin, died July 8, 2009 at the Hudson Hospital.
Hilda was born May 27, 1920 to Gabriel and Anna (Pischke) Wagner in Brandon. She grew up there and met Ellsworth Wussow. In 1942 the two were joined in marriage and moved to the state of Washington. While there, Hilda worked as a secretary for the JA Jones Construction Company. They retired to California in 1982. It was there that Ellsworth passed away in 2002. In 2004, Hilda decided to move to Hudson to be near her family.
In her 89 years, Hilda had many amazing experiences. A lot of these came from her world travels. Twice, Hilda and Ellsworth went on non-stop tours around the globe (once in a motor home) and shared in many adventures together. Hilda also enjoyed card games and was pretty good at bowling. She took up the hobby of knitting, making dishcloths and afghans for her family, and she enjoyed entertaining friends and family all year long. Throughout everything she did, she always kept her family first and made sure they knew how much they meant to her.
She is survived by three sisters, a sister-in-law, many nieces, nephews, other family members and many dear friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ellsworth; her parents; three brothers and one sister.
Services for Hilda were held on Saturday, July 11 at St Ann’s Catholic Church in Brandon. Burial took place at St. Ann’s Catholic Church Cemetery.
Arrangements were entrusted to the O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Hudson, Wisconsin; (715) 386-3725; www.oconnellfuneralhomes.com.
