Cynthia "Cindy" M. Hildebrand

Cynthia M. Hildebrand, age 59, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away peacefully, Monday morning, July 27, 2020, at Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania, following complications from a recent stroke.  Cindy was born November 7, 1960 in Wauseon, Ohio to John and Donna (Barden) Vaculik.  She was a 1979 graduate of Swanton High School, and married Brian L. Hildebrand on October 16, 1981.

Cindy and Brian enjoyed taking cruises to Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean.  Cindy worked as a housekeeper and cleaned several homes in the area.  When she came home from work, the first thing she did was slip into one of her favorite night gowns. Cindy loved camping, Halloween, perch fishing, all sorts of crafting - including plastic canvas and crocheting.  But most of all, Cindy adored her beautiful grandchildren. Along with her unforgettable laugh, Cindy will always be remembered for her willingness to help others.

Cindy is survived by her husband of 39 years, Brian; son, Brian Lee (Elizabeth) Hildebrand; daughter, Katie (Kyle) Segrist; grandchildren, Joshua and Aubrey Hildebrand and Luke, Londyn, Logan and Holden Segrist; her father, John Vaculik; brothers, Todd (Lori) Vaculik and Eric (Dawn) Vaculik; father and mother-in-law, Doran and Joan Hildebrand and Sandy and Dale Neigebauer; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Cindy was preceded in death by her mother, Donna Vaculik; brother Greg Vaculik; and granddaughters, Hayley Mae and Hayden Jean Segrist.

Family and friends may visit Saturday, August 1st from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at St. Richard Catholic Church in Swanton, where a Vigil Service will begin at 2:00 p.m., with Fr. Eric Culler presiding.  Interment will follow at St. Richard’s Cemetery. 

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I send my sympathy to Cindy's family. I babysat for the Vaculik children in the summer of 1971 at their home on Brookside. Such fond memories of Cindy as she was the only girl with her 3 brothers. May She rest in paradise .

Cindy sweet nature and laugh will forever be my remembrance of her. May you all find comfort in Gods arms at this most difficult time.

One of my first memories of Cindy was when Brian Lee was playing football and she was his biggest cheerleader and fan ! More recently, Cindy would always say Hi ! How are ya ? when she came through the drive up at the bank . She was such a great mom and happy person and I know she lives on in those beautiful grandchildren !
My sympathy to the Vaculik and Hildebrand families.

Brian and John, we are so sad to hear of Cindys passing. What a sweet lady. We hope your wonderful memories will bring you comfort in the days ahead. Our deepest sympathy to both of you and the extended family.

My heart goes out to all of Cindys family. I have known Cindy since I was 19 years old. I would go with friends to her house after work to play video games (dork move) and she was always so incredibly kind and loving. She always greeted me with the warmest smile and the most sincere hug. Her laughter was legendary as well as contagious. I havent been in touch as often as I should have but my fondest memory of her will remain. Rest in paradise, Cindy.

Chelsea Killian Jul 28 2020 12:00 AM

My heart breaks for you and your entire family. I will keep you in my thoughts ! Remember all of the smiles that Cynthia brought into your life, and those smiles will see you through these tough times. My prayers are with you all !
