Anneliese Ludwig Hyde, age 91, passed away peacefully on Sunday night, March 11,
2012 surrounded by family and friends at Fairgreen Assisted Living Facility, New
Smyrna Beach, FL, where she was a resident. She was born on May 2, 1920 in Marburg,
Germany to Burogehilfe Martin Ludwig and Bertha Sennet Ludwig.
Anneliese worked as a cashier on the U.S. Army Base in Stuttgart, Germany in 1953,
where she met Claude Wilson Hyde, who was a Chief Clerk in the Hq, ih U.S. Army.
Claude and Anneliese were married on May 7, 1955 in Boeblingen, Germany and then
they were transferred to Fort Lewis Washington in October, 1955. Due to Claude's work
in Supply and assignment with the Pershing Missile Battalion, they were transferred often
and subsequently were stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky, Redstone Arsenal/Huntsville,
Alabama, Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, Schwabisch Gmund, Germany and Pittsburg, Kansas.
Claude retired from the military in 1969 and they decided to move to Orlando, Florida as
they both loved the warm weather, ocean and the beach. Anneliese was a full time
homemaker and active in supporting school activities. She enjoyed going to the health
spa, spending time with her family and friends and going to New Smyrna Beach on the
weekends with Claude. She moved from Altamonte Springs to New Smyrna Beach in
2004 to be close to her daughter and son-in-law and lived on her own until May 2, 2011
when she decided to move to Fairgreen. She loved her Saturday breakfast at Mom's,
Sunday lunch at the Outback (champagne of course!) and the staff at Fairgreen. She is
survived by her daughter, Patty Hyde Raudenbush and son-in-law, Rex Raudenbush
(New Smyrna Beach, FL), grand-daughter, Jamie Raudenbush and great grandson RJ
(Lakeland, FL). She was predeceased by Claude in January, 2003.
