Helen (Talbot) Hitselberger
On Saturday, October 16, 2021, Helen Talbot Hitselberger passed away peacefully with family by her side. She was born in Brooklyn, NY to Francis X. Talbot and Mary D. Talbot. Along with her older brother, Frank, the Talbot family moved to Washington, DC in 1940, where Helen graduated from Blessed Sacrament elementary school, and Holy Cross high school. She then earned a B.A. degree in economics from Trinity College. In 1955, she married the love of her life, the late Joseph G. Hitselberger. She and Joe had seven children: Joe (Sue) Hitselberger, Mary Helen (Dave) Kanitz, Peggy (Tom) English, Frank Hitselberger, Ann (Scott) Fell, Kathleen (Tim) Culver and Theresa (Nate) Clark. Together, Helen and Joe worked hard to raise their family and sacrificed to ensure that all seven of their children were educated in Catholic schools through high school and that all seven of their children earned college degrees. They were loving parents who were very proud of the family they created together.
Helen was proud of her Irish heritage and known for her interest in current events. She was also known for her keen interest in all the activities of her children and grandchildren. There was nothing she liked more than a good chat and a good laugh.
Helen is survived by twenty-two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
