Traudel Hankinson

September 9, 1942-July 10, 2017

 

Traudel (Hassler) Hankinson was born in Rotenburg an der Fulda, Germany on September 9, 1942 to late parents Heinz and Katharina (Kathe) Hassler.  Traudel was the oldest of three siblings with two younger brothers.

Traudel met the love of her life, Raymond Hankinson, in 1964 in Frankfurt, Germany.   Within four months the lovely German student and the handsome sailor were engaged.  Traudel and Ray spent the early part of their life together travelling the world, bringing their three daughters along on the journey.  They lived in Washington DC, Japan, Texas, Florida, and Italy. They settled in Malden in 1978, Ray’s hometown, surrounded by family.

Traudel (Oma to her two grandsons) was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, always putting the needs of her family before her own.   She was a voracious reader, and loved to cook for and play games with her family. She found great joy crocheting blankets and scarves for the whole family.   

Traudel passed away peacefully Monday July 10th, with her husband and daughters by her side.  She is survived by her husband, Raymond Hankinson, her children Jean and T. J. Ramsey, Christina and James Mason III, all of Austin, TX, and Julie Hankinson and Michael Gomes of Malden, and her two brothers Peter and Harald Hassler of Germany, and her mother-in-law Jean Hankinson of Malden.   She was blessed with two grandsons, James Mason IV and William Mason of Austin, TX.

Funeral service will be held in the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St., Malden, on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, at 6PM. Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home on Wednesday from 4-8PM. She will be placed in Holy Cross Mausoleum, Malden at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Diabetes Society.
