NOELLIE ELIZABETH HARTMANN HNATYSHYN ~ Jesus reached out his loving hand of mercy and grace and took her home on June 7, 2014.





Noellie was born on November 28, 1925, in a house on Dakin Street near Poplar in Jefferson, Louisiana, to Adele Catherine Rauch Hartmann and the gentle Lawrence Vincent Hartmann, Sr.





She graduated from Dominican High School and attended Soule School of Business. As a young woman she played the cymbals in Mrs. Tisdale's marching band, banjo and piano in the stage band.





In the early 1940's, Noellie met a handsome American-born Army soldier of Ukrainian descent, from New York City, Stanley Hnatyshyn. They met at Camp Plauche in Jefferson Parish where the local young ladies were invited to dances hosted by the USO. Noellie and Stanley married at Fort Sill Army base in Lawton, Oklahoma, on December 31, 1943. Stanley went away to war and was a medic in New Guinea. In April 1945, he returned to the USA and they established their home in Jefferson, Louisiana. They were blessed with seven children.





Noellie was a woman of faith and raised her children in an atmosphere of faith. She loved each of them “…separately and exactly the same” and had no favorites. Her sense of humor was present until the very end.





After Stanley's death on May 31, 1977, she continued to lovingly raise the children to adulthood, on her own, with God's guidance and the love and help of her mother, Adele.





Not only did Noellie leave her children a legacy of love and faith in Jesus, but with a strong work ethic as well. For many years she was active at St. Agnes School (which all seven attended) and St. Agnes Church. She became assistant head cook at St. Agnes cafeteria and eventually went to work in the EKG department at Ochsner Clinic in Jefferson, where she rose to the position of assistant supervisor of the EKG computer department. She retired in late 1990.





She is predeceased by her husband, Stanley; parents, Lawrence and Adele Rauch Hartmann; grandson, Eugene Blaska; granddaughter, Cristina Hnatyshyn and niece, Karen Hartmann.





Survivors include her baby brother, Larry Hartmann, whom she loved from the moment he was born, his wife, Patricia, and their large family of nieces and nephews including Kristin, Kathy, Lloyd, Lawrence and Louis.





Noellie is survived by all seven of her children: Diane (David) Blaska; Lynn (Max) Maxwell; Elaine (Michael) Lovelace; Stephen (Denise) Hnatyshyn; David (Rossana) Hnatyshyn; Mary Anne (Roy) Hnatyshyn; Christopher (Allison) Hnatyshyn. Grandchildren: Shawn, Jenifer, Jaime, Joshua, Jessie, Nicholas, Daniel, Alexandra, Owen and Riley. Great-grandchildren: Jessica, Brittni, Kory, Maddox, Henley, Gideon and Audrey.





Be at Peace in the Presence of the Lord, Mama. We all love and miss you very much!





Visitation for Noellie will be Friday June 13, 2014 at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, New Orleans, LA from 1pm to 3pm with Funeral Mass at 3pm. Interment will follow in Lake Lawn Park Cemetery.





In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made on behalf of Noellie Hnatyshyn to the Cristina Hnatyshyn Scholarship Fund c/o Mount Carmel Academy 7027 Milne Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124.
