Hilda Sylvia Cairo Obituary
CAIRO, HILDA SYLVIA; entered into God’s eternal peace on August 14, 2014; at 93 years of age. She was preceded in her passage by husband, Pasquale “Louis”; mother and father, Elizabeth (nee Brown) Caley of Sterling, Scotland and George Caley of Lincolnshire, England; sisters, Winifred Bunting and Patricia Schooley. Hilda is survived by her children, John (the late Mary Jo) Cairo, Pat (Doug) Bradley, Sylvia Blaty, Nanette (Dave) Parks, Lu Ann (Bob) Cruse and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1921. She emigrated to the U.S. in 1951 after marrying her husband in the U.S. Army during the occupation of Europe after W.W. II where she was an civilian officer in General Eisenhower’s Army and was a dedicated Christian. Her entire life was devoted to her family; she was beloved by all of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren for her unselfish, unconditional love. She frequently and consistently put other people’s needs before her own, and was cherished for her laughter and goodwill. Private Services were held. Hilda was interred with her husband at Great Lakes National Cemetery, Holly, MI. She was a genuine treasure to those who knew her and will be deeply missed. To those of you who knew and loved her, we ask that you take a moment to offer a prayer for Hilda’s life and for her transition into God’s Eternal Glory.
