Obituary for Herta Hillmann

Herta Hillman, 93, of Greeley, passed away on November 8, 2018 at home in Greeley, Colorado. She was born to Fritz and Elise (Knipping) Richter on April 27, 1925 in Brebber, Germany.
Herta met her husband, Henry at a New Year’s Eve dance in 1948. They were married two years later and sailed to America where Henry had lived for twenty years and attained his citizenship. Together they farmed and raised their children until moving to the house she still lived in since 1960. She worked at Bayly Manufacturing and later at Hardee’s making biscuits.
Herta loved quilting, sewing and needlework. For many years she was part of the Our Savior’s quilting group. She delighted in cooking and baking for people and was an amazing cook. She will be remembered for her amazing Sunday dinners and afternoon cakes and coffee. Later that day she would bribe her grandkids to stay longer with homemade chocolate chip cookies and ice cream cones. She loved cooking for the helpers at Habitat for Humanity, her favorite charity. She enjoyed gardening and had a well-kept yard. Every fall was spent canning and freezing wonderful produce from her garden. She also had a special place in her heart for cats and dogs.
Herta is survived by her children, Victor Hillmann, Elvira Flynn, Erwin (Chonamae) Hillmann, Margaret Hillmann, Kurt (Gayle) Hillmann, Juleen (Art) Weigle; 15 grandchildren, [Murray (Georgette) Flynn, Alissa (Nick) Walters, Annette (Charles) Rugh, Robert (Shilpi) Sullivan, Chelsea (Brad) Quillen, Raena Hillmann, Krista Hillmann, Robert (Alicia) Harvey, William (Allison) Harvey, Elise Harvey, Jordan Harvey, Derek (Laura Oldfield) Weigle, Bret (Rachel) Weigle, Tracy (Dave Howard) Weigle and Gustav Weigle], 16 great grandchildren [Shelby, Jasper, Mathius, Michael, Molly, Nicole, Olivia, Lukas, William, Henry, Rowan, Della, Dylan, Alexander, Logan, Addilyn] and 1 great-great grandchild, [Loveah]; sisters in Germany; Hedwig Siemers and Elfriede Richter, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Herta was proceeded in death by her parents, her husband of 40 years, Henry Hillmann; son, Harold Hillmann; son-in-law, Brian Flynn.
