Hilda Koenig

August 10, 1917 — June 12, 2018

Hilda L. Koenig of Wausau, died on June 12, 2018 after 100 years of life filled with many blessings. Hilda was born on August 10, 1917 in the Town of Marathon to the late August and Adeline Beilke. She married Harold Koenig on October 23, 1947 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Rib Mountain. He preceded her in death on July 31, 2015. Since 1955 she has been a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. She was an active volunteer at Trinity and also at Colonial Manor for many years.

Mom loved knitting, sewing, listening to music and walking in the neighborhood under the full moon. Her door was always open and friends and family stopped by daily for a slice of homemade bread, bowl of chicken noodle soup or a slice of homemade pie. When she was not in the kitchen, she could be found sitting on her porch swing in the backyard or playing sheephead with her grandchildren Matt and Amy.

Survivors include daughters Sandy (Jim) Pauls, Linda (Scott) Kremer Koenig, grandchildren Matthew Pauls (Becky Bergs), Amy Pauls, and great grandchildren Ruby and Lily Pauls. Hilda was preceded in death by her brothers, Martin, Arnold, Ervin and Harold. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 on Monday June 18, 2018 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 501 Stewart Ave, Wausau, visitation from 10:00 until the time of services at the church, with a luncheon following the service. Burial will follow at Restlawn Memorial Park.

The family would like to thank the caring staff, both past and present, of Mountain Terrace Senior Living who were like a second family to Mom for the last three years and also the Aspirus Hospice team who helped Mom during the last few weeks of her life. We are grateful for the many neighbors and friends that were so important to her throughout her life.
