HILDEGARD EMILIE PLAGGE Hilda passed away peacefully on July 19, 2017 in Williamsburg, Virginia, while visiting her oldest daughter. She was born August 27, 1937 in San Francisco, California. She lived in Richland for over 40 years with her husband and four children. Hilda spent her childhood and young adult life in San Francisco, a city she always cherished. She loved going there to visit, taking her children and in later years, her grandchildren, to share the beauty and visit her friends and family there. After completing high school at St. Anne's Catholic School, she worked as a secretary for Pacific Telephone Company in downtown San Francisco for 10 years. During this time, she met her husband, Hubert Plagge, who immigrated from Germany, at the Kolping Society Hall's Friday night dances. She and Hubert married on July 6, 1963 in San Francisco and moved to Millbrae, California where they began their family. After a few years in California, Hubert's work brought them to live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for 2 years, then to Richland, Washington in 1973. Hilda loved her family. She was a devoted mom and Oma and enjoyed spending time with them at the pool, watching them play sports, going bowling, playing cards and Yahtzee, and in later years traveling out of state to visit her children and their families. She was a member of Christ the King Church in Richland and enjoyed supporting and attending the Sausage Fest each year. She will fondly be remembered for all the beautiful blankets she crocheted, her sweet tooth and baking delicious cakes, going to play BINGO, and always game to going out to lunch or dinner with friends and family. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. She is preceded in death by her parents Anton and Emilie Fuchs and husband, Hubert. She is survived by her sister Maryanne Goehringer; four children: Monica husband David, Maria husband Robert, Werner wife Jill, Mark wife Phuong; and eight grandchildren: Spencer, Matthew, Gabrielle, Jordan, Anthony, Andrew, Nicholas, and Alison. With much love, her children would like to thank her goddaughter, Anne Stroh; her sister, Maryanne Goehringer; and niece, Annemarie Hartman; for traveling to visit her in Virginia. Also, we would like to thank the Williamsburg, Virginia Hospice House for the wonderful care and peace she received during her final days. Burial service will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery, 1500 Mission Road, Colma, CA 94014.
