Kayan, Hilda Rose  
Hilda Rose Kayan, 91, of Vernon, beloved wife for 63 years of the late Edward James Kayan, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014, surrounded by her family at her home. Born in Rockville on Nov. 7, 1923, daughter of the late Carl and Pauline (Reutter) Schneider, she was a lifelong resident of Rockville and Vernon. Shortly after marrying the love of her life, together they built the family homestead on Dobson Road, where they raised their seven children. She was a dedicated farmer, helping to raise and harvest the massive family garden and farm crops that nourished them all. Later in life, this dedication evolved into a passion for flower gardening. After her kids were all in school, Hilda returned to work at Moser Farms, managing several stores alongside her favorite employee (her husband). After retiring in 1986, her energies focused on her church, Sacred Heart, where she served for many years as a Eucharistic Minister. In addition, Hilda and Ed were two of the founders of the Caregivers group at their church. They devoted much of their downtime to their many grandchildren, and also found time to travel and play. Most of all, Hilda will be remembered as a person who was dedicated to caring for her family. She leaves seven children, Lorie Orzechowski and her husband, Mike, of East Granby; Joe Kayan and his wife, Lesley, of Northfield, Massachusetts; Jan Streifer and her husband, Phil, of Sanbornton, New Hampshire; Jim Kayan and his wife, Phylis, of Avon; Bob Kayan and his wife, Lori, of Burlington; Sue Ellis and her husband, Rich, of Tolland; and Paula Hughes and her husband, Jeff, of South Windsor; a sister, Mildred Gerber and her husband, Melvin, of Ellington; 19 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Besides her husband, she was predeceased by brothers, Walt, Fred, Al, and Ernie Schneider; and four sisters, Martha Mangold, Frieda Lanz, Flora Batz, and Dorothy Schneider. One of her last expressed wishes was to thank her children, family, friends, and special caregivers for the heartfelt love and care that she received during the last years of her life. Her family will receive friends on Sunday, Dec. 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m., at the Ladd-Turkington & Carmon Funeral Home, 551 Talcottville Road, Vernon. Family and friends may gather on Monday, Dec. 22, at 10 a.m., at the Ladd-Turkington & Carmon Funeral Home, Vernon, followed by a Funeral Mass, at 11 a.m., at Sacred Heart Church, 550 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon. Burial will follow in St. Bernard Cemetery, Rockville. Hilda's family has requested that memorial donations be made to Cornerstone Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 2036, Vernon, CT 06066 or to Sacred Heart Church, Attn: Caregivers, 550 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon, CT 06066. For online condolences please visit www.carmonfuneralhome.com
