Helen R. Hildebrand

Weirs Beach, NH--Helen R. Hildebrand, 82, of 85 Tower St., Weirs Beach, NH, died in her daughter’s home on Saturday, December 15, 2007. 

Helen was born August 23, 1925 in the Hanover Section of Nanticoke, PA, the daughter of Peter and Mary (Felch) Rudoski.  She graduated from Nanticoke High School and was a hostess at Percy Brown’s Cafeteria in Wilkes-Barre, PA, until her marriage to Ralph A. Hildebrand.  She was preceded in death by her husband, and moved from Pennsylvania to New Hampshire 5 years ago to be closer to her family.

 In Pennsylvania, Helen was a member of Holy Transfiguration Ukrainian Church and the Episcopal Church of St. Clement and St. Peter.  She volunteered tirelessly for her church, organizing a multitude of fund-raising events.  She was a member of the Rector’s Guild, the Episcopal Churchwomen and the church choir for over 35 years.  She also spent countless hours volunteering at the VA Hospital to help disabled war veterans. She was a remarkable homemaker; excelling in vegetable gardening, canning, cooking, baking and the rearing of her children.  She enjoyed her family, friends and the Boston Red Sox; never missing a televised game.  She was admired and loved by all whose lives she touched and will be missed by all.

Survivors include her two daughters, Denise H. Larsen and her husband, Chris, of Monmouth, OR., and Alison M. Hildebrand of Weirs Beach, NH; one son, Adam Mark Hildebrand of Center Harbor, NH; one sister, Pauline Zell of Lakewood, NJ; four grandchildren, Gunnar Hildebrand of Center Harbor, NH, Ensign Peter Larsen, USN, Andrew Larsen and Kate Larsen of Monmouth, OR, and many nieces and nephews.  

Donations may be made to the Episcopal Church of St. Clement and St. Peter, 165 Hanover St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702, where a memorial service will be held in the spring of 2008.

Wilkinson-Beane Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia, NH is in charge of the local arrangements.
