Marie Helen Hindela WachlinApril 28, 1934 ~ March 6, 2017 (age 82)
Marie Helen Hindela Wachlin, 82, passed away Monday, March 6, 2017, at Health First Hospice in Cape Canaveral Hospital.
Marie is survived by her husband of 61 years, Lawrence Wachlin, Sr.; son, Lawrence Wachlin, Jr. (Yole); daughter, Karen Wachlin Muldoon; and granddaughter, Rachel Adams (Jason). She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Anna Hindela.
Marie was born April 28, 1934. She lived in Bohemia, Long Island, NY, until 1966, when she moved to Rockledge, FL, with her husband and 2 children. She became a CNA and worked at local nursing homes until she retired.
Marie will be lovingly remembered for the many blessings she brought to our lives. She often was teased about her Long Island accent, which she never lost after 50 years of living in Florida. Marie loved music, dancing, animals, and spending time with family and friends. She loved basking in the sun by the pool or at the beach, traveling to Tennessee, and outings with friends on the casino ship. She especially enjoyed belly dancing, and shared her talent and joy of dance, whenever possible. She performed at events with other belly dancers; but her greatest pleasure came from entertaining family, friends, nursing home residents and others with enthusiastic, and sometimes impromptu, performances.
In her latter years, Marie's smiles, laughter, spontaneous outbursts of song and dance, and other amusing antics brought joy to her many caregivers. She lavished love and attention on several special puppies and kittens. They brought much happiness into her life every day, and kept faithful watch over her until the end.
