In the early evening hours of 10-10-20, my lovely wife, Ilse Hurt, passed away and went to be with her family in Heaven. She was 95 years young, born in Ingolstadt, Germany on August 8, 1925. We were married in Aschaffenburg, Germany, on September 21, 1957, and had been married for 63 years and 13 days. That’s a lifetime for a lot of people. She had not been in good health for several years and finally in the last couple, she was really in bad health. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, a sister and brother and a daughter, Linda. It’s kind of ironic that she passed away on 10-10. She had relatives that were born on 2-2, 4-4, 7-7, she on 8-8, and another on 11-11. Instead of flowers, please send that contribution to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital Memorial Honor Program, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. If you saw my post the other day that said I was sad, that’s the reason why.
Mrs. Hurt will be lovingly remembered by her husband, James Hurt; sister, Karin of Aachen, Germany; as well as several nieces and nephews.
A Funeral Service for Mrs. Hurt will be held Friday, October 16, 2020, 2:00 P.M., at the Chapel of Caldwell & Cowan, 1215 Access Road, in Covington, with Fr. Roberto A. Orellana officiating and interment following in Lawnwood Memorial Park in Covington. Friends may visit with her family at the funeral home, one hour prior to her service, from 1:00 – 2:00 P.M.
This obituary was prepared with love and affection by her adoring husband, Mr. Hurt.
