Obituary for Hildegard McCaulley

Hildegard McCaulley died in Crescent City California on July 9, 2011. Hilda was born on May 27, 1926 in Frankfort (Oder), Germany to Paul and Marie (Adamcefski) Vetter After suffering many hardships at the close of WWII, Hilda met Gerald (Mike) McCaulley in France in 1956 and they were married the following year. Hilda followed Mike throughout his Air Force career, caring for the house and children (Thomas and Martina) and cooking great German meals. After years of moving throughout the US and Europe, they settled in the Northwest. Following Mike’s retirement from the military, Hilda and Mike owned and operated a small motel on White Pass which catered to hunters. Always eager to share hospitality and a good story, Hilda made the motel guests at home. Finally, Mike and Hilda settled in Brookings Oregon where they lived out their remaining years enjoying garage sales, gardening, and raising birds. After Mike died on June 13, 2011, Hilda’s health deteriorated very suddenly. On July 9, 2011, Hilda followed Mike in death after a brief illness. Hilda’s funeral Mass will be on Thursday July 28th at 10:00AM at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Camas Washington
