Irmgard Hormann

Posted On November 5th, 2016 -

Irmgard HormannIRMGARD HORMANN July 28, 1917 - October 9, 2016 Irmgard Carola Margarethe Hormann (Ingie) was born July 28, 1917 in Honolulu. After 99 years of loving, faithful and always joyful service to all who were ever in her presence, Irmgard slipped quietly into God's presence on Sunday, October 9, 2016. Holding her hand was her nephew and devoted caregiver, David, and her niece, Phyllis. Irmgard attended kindergarten at Hanahauoli School before transferring to Punahou in First Grade. She graduated from Punahou in 1933 at the young age of 15 and entered the University of Hawai'i where she says "people thought I was stuck up, but really I was painfully shy and afraid to talk to those grown up college students". She graduated in 1937 and went on to complete a Master's Degree at Columbia University Library School. Returning to Hawaii in 1939, her first job was with the Library of Hawai'i in Lihue, Kaua'i, a place she knew and loved since childhood as her father had served the Lihue Lutheran Church during his 30 years of tenure as pastor of the Lutheran Church of Honolulu. She served as head of the Young Adult section at the main Library of Hawai'i for many years. Overcoming her shyness, she presented dynamic book talks in the schools. In 1972, after 40 years of service, Irmgard retired from the Hawai'i State Library to become her mother's caregiver. Retirement for Irmgard meant more time to give to others beyond the family as well. This sense of service, and caring for others was instilled in her by her parents, the Rev. Dr. Arthur and Maria Hormann ("Vati," and "Mutti"). Irmgard's activities at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu included teaching Sunday school, singing in the choir and serving people in need as a member of the Social Ministry Committee. Further outreach activities included cooking and serving meals at the Institute for Human Services as well as founding Hawaii Meals On Wheels. Hawaii Meals on Wheels was her "baby." Starting with $25 dollars and six volunteers from different churches, hot meals were delivered to six homebound clients. Today, 300 volunteers deliver more than 84,000 meals to 500 clients annually. Just 4 weeks ago as the family gathered at her house, the conversation turned to the growth and changes of Meals on Wheels. Ingie's face lit up, her eyes sparkled, her hands waved, and she had something to say! She served 30 years as a volunteer for Friends of the Library, pricing religious books every week for their annual book sale. Irmgard never lost her love of books. She passed this love on to her nieces, nephews and the children of friends who all eagerly anticipated their birthday and Christmas gifts of books. Throughout the years Irmgard continued to be a caregiver. After her mother, she cared for her two older brothers, Bernhard and Helmuth. Fortunately, her nephew, David, came to assist her and he ended up staying for 18 years, becoming Irmgard's own loving caregiver! In 2010, at age 92, Irmgard was named Oahu's Outstanding Senior Female Volunteer of the Year. We marvel at all Irmgard DID in her lifetime. But most of all, we cherish who she WAS as a person. She loved her family, her church, her Hawai'i and all its people. Her goodness and spirit are held forever as treasures in our hearts. Survivors include nieces Sylvia Hormann-Alper, Pauline Jacroux, the Rev. Phyllis Hormann; nephews Nicholas Hormann, David Hormann; 8 grand nieces and nephews, 8 great grand nieces and nephews, and her beloved caregiver Aileen Castillo. A Memorial service will be held Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, 1730 Punahou Street, Honolulu, 96822. In lieu of flowers or lei, contributions may be made to Hawai'i Meals on Wheels or the Lutheran Church of Honolulu. A reception will follow the service.
