G. Hipatia Calderon left this earth for the garden on Monday, January 28, 2013. She now looks down on us all, seeing those she loved in ways she never imagined before – collecting our stories to share with us upon reuniting. Those of us left behind will carry always a sense of awe for a woman who lived exactly in the ways she wished. Her beloved husband of over 60 years was by her side through her final moments as he has been since they were young, inexperienced and so very in love. She has left her indelible mark on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in ways beyond counting. A friend to all she met and a stranger to absolutely no one, this grand woman had a space in her heart and at her table for every soul she touched. Hipatia is survived by secretly dancing in the dark, unknown ingredients to family recipes and early morning light playing in cascades of ebon hair. She will be missed.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Great River Hospice or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Thielen Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
