Vilma Eordogh, 89, of Hamilton, passed away on Sunday, May 31, 2020, at Memorial Hospital in Carthage.
Vilma was born on April 11, 1931, in Hungary, the daughter of Zoltan and Elisabeth (Oberlender) Eordogh. She and her family moved from Hungary to Keokuk, Iowa, in 1951, as refugees escaping World War II. She was employed at Sullivan’s Clothing Store in Keokuk as a seamstress. Vilma moved back to Germany for many years before returning to the United States. She spoke Hungarian, German and English fluently, and enjoyed reading books in all three languages. She corresponded with many friends and family around the world, and loved sharing stories of her childhood.

Vilma is preceded in death by her parents and her sister Elisabeth.
