Hildegarde E. Tammany, 98

February 10, 2021

Hildegarde E. Tammany, 98, of Pleasant View Communities, passed away Wednesday, February 10, 2021. Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late Paul and Daisy (Huber) Reincke. She was the loving wife of the late Harry S. Tammany.

Of the Catholic Faith, Hildegarde’s primary concern was for her family and rearing her children. Hildegarde had an amazing work ethic and, while caring for her family, she also worked outside her home. Until her retirement, she worked at Hubley Toys and KD Tool. After her retirement, she continued to work parttime as an aide at Colonial Hall Nursing Home and later as an aide working with children through CAP, working until she was almost 90 years old. She would attribute her longevity, vibrancy and strength to her hard work.

She enjoyed socializing with friends and neighbors. Hildegarde loved going to eat out at her favorite restaurant, Onions. She also loved to travel, taking trips to Florida and spending time in the mountains, and visiting with her sister in Atlantic City where she indulged in salt water taffy. She enjoyed picnicking with family and spending her evenings watching the Hallmark channel. Hildegarde was well known for her delicious sand tarts. Over the years, she made tens of thousands of sand tarts for her family and friends!

She is survived by her daughter, Emma Jean Boyer, wife of Eugene, of Manheim; 9 grandchildren: Claire McMichael, Dinah Wise, Roseanne Hickey, Christopher Hickey, Michael Hickey, Tracy Hoy, Matthew Boyer, Mark Boyer, and Christine Boyer; 16 great-grandchildren; and 18 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by 2 grandchildren: Luke Boyer and John Hickey, Jr.; 1 great-grandson Michael Hickey; 3 step children: Claire Hickey, Harry Tammany, Jr., and Richard Tammany; and siblings: Richard, Jack, George, Sis, Agnes, and Mary.

Funeral Services will be private and at the convenience of the family.

I was very surprised when I read the paper about Hildy.  I didn’t think anyone in my grandparents era were still living.  My grandmother was Laura Aston and Hildy was her sister-in-law and I remember Hildy.  My thoughts and prayers are with the family.  My cousin Sally and I would love to get in touch with her daughter when Covid is over.  My cell phone is (717) 682-2558 if you want to text or call me.

Sorry to hear about Hilda’s passing. She was like a second Mom to me. It’s unfortunate I didn’t see her recently because of covid visiting restrictions. I will miss her as well.
