Krimhilde Luise Schneeberger

WILMINGTON - Krimhilde Luise (Ziegler) Schneeberger died peacefully at home on Friday, July 29, at the age of 88.
Hilde was born June 4, 1934, in Gau-Algersheim, Germany, to Arthur and Theresa (Berktold) Ziegler and was one of seven children. She lived and attended schools in Kempten in the Bavaria region of Germany. After secondary school she studied nursing while attending La Pouponniere et L’Abri in Lausanne, Switzerland, where she learned to speak French.
In 1963 she accepted a nursing position and opportunity to learn English in New York City, which is where she met her husband George, a Swiss native living in Vermont. They were married in Wilmington on July 16, 1966, and had a second ceremony a week later in Switzerland so that their families could attend. Together they had two sons, Norman and Raymond. They settled in Vermont where Hilde continued her career as a registered nurse working at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and Eden Park Nursing Home. In 1970 she earned her US citizenship in which she had a great deal of pride.
Hilde was an excellent cook and took pleasure in preparing dishes from her native Germany, especially the bread that she so often baked. She enjoyed gardening, canning, and pickling vegetables and making jams. She was an avid reader and liked mystery novels, sometimes joking that she was going to become a detective. She traveled frequently with George and had fond memories of their many adventures including trips to France, China, Eqypt, Alaska, and Hawaii.
Hilde was an incredibly supportive wife, mother, and grandmother who cared deeply for her family. She was a compassionate person who could provide encouragement when it was needed the most. She will be missed by those who knew and loved her. In addition to George and her sons, she is survived by her grandchildren Hunter, Nicole, Mia, and Madison.
As she requested, services will be private. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital annual fund c/o Covey Allen & Shea Funeral Home, PO Box 215, Wilmington, VT 05363.
