Hilda was born on April 25, 1915 in Jackson, the daughter of Max and Alma (nee Heckendorf) Kringel. She married Clarence Tischer on Nov. 23, 1940 at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church on Pleasant Valley Road. Hilda and Clarence had a farm together in the town of Jackson where they raised their family. They celebrated 60 years of marriage together.
Hilda was a hard worker and helped Clarence on the farm with raising the chickens, picking potatoes, milking cows and taking care of the home. She was a good baker, especially making bread and rolls. Hilda was not one to ever complain, and she never had a negative word to say about her children. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a big part of her life, bringing her great joy.
Hilda is survived by her loving children Ronald (Margaret) of Germantown, Arlene (Karl) Kumm of Waukesha, Dennis (Elfrieda) of Jackson and Sharon (Mark R.) Schmeling of Rubicon. She was the cherished grandma of Daniel, Melinda, Karl and Brian Kumm, Kevin (Mandy), David, Jamie (Jason) Koehler, Carrie (fiance Michael Wilde), Mark A. (Lori), Travis and Troy Schmeling; and the great-grandma of Savannah, Mickayla, Cora, Tyler, Benjamin and Griffin. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.
Hilda was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Clarence; her parents; and her brother Edwin.
