Hilda M. Hamelin

Hilda M. Hamelin, 98, formerly of Elm Street, Ipswich, passed away peacefully Saturday, October 8, 2016 at Belmont Manor in Belmont, where she had wonderful and loving care for the past nine years.

Born in Lynn on September 22, 1918, she was the daughter of the late Henry and Nellie (Marriott) Hamelin. She lived in Ipswich most of her life and attended Ipswich public schools. She worked from a very young age until she retired from Sylvania, when Sylvania closed its doors.

Hilda was an avid knitter, making argyle sweaters and socks for all of her family and friends. Although she never had any children of her own, dozens of people lovingly still call her “Auntie Hilda.”

She was a lifelong member of Ascension Memorial Church.

She leaves her niece, Margo Hagerty Bergantino, of Waltham; her cousin, T. Louis (Bud) Hamelin and his son, Thomas of Georgetown and several great and grand nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sisters, Bernice Robishaw, Charlotte LeBosquet Lambert, Hazel Herndon, Flora Hagerty and her brother, Thomas Hamelin.

God has called her home. She will be interred with a private service in the Cowles Memorial Cemetery in Ipswich. Arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.
