Early on the morning of February 3rd, 2020, Adeline T. Hiltebrant peacefully passed away in Bountiful, Utah. She was 94 years old. She spent most of her life in Ohio in the Cleveland area. She lived a good, long life and is survived by her 3 sons (a 4th son passed), 10 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and many nephews and nieces.
Adeline was born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 16, 1925, to John Jack Toddy (Tadych) and Mary Katherine Pasek. She and her parents lived a very modest life and her father worked in a factory during his career. He would get up early to report for work at 5:00 AM each day and home by 1-2:00 PM. He would then, during the summer, attend to his tomato plants behind the garage while her mother baked poppyseed treats and other yummy goodies. Adeline had an older brother, Clayton Toddy, and a sister, Doris Palmer, who both preceded her in death.
She married Donald B. McCann on October 15, 1949, in Cleveland, Ohio. Donald was an attorney in Cleveland and became quite successful representing some of Ohio’s largest companies. They both loved acting in little theatres in Brecksville, Ohio. They started their family and had 4 sons together and Adeline stayed home to raise her boys. Their first child was Donald Barry McCann Jr. born on May 29, 1951 (Bountiful, Utah). They purchased their first home in Brecksville, Ohio on 12404 Glen Valley Drive in 1953. Soon after, in 1954, Brian Lawrence McCann (deceased) was born, then Brett William McCann (Las Vegas) in 1964 and finally Brady Todd McCann (Ohio) in 1967. All of her sons are living except for Brian, who passed in 2006.
Adeline and Donald McCann divorced, and she remarried Stephen Hiltebrant October 16, 1981, and together they lived in Northfield, Ohio until Steve’s passing in 1995. She moved to Bountiful, Utah from Ohio in July 2015, so she could get help with her care. In her later years, she enjoyed watching the Cleveland Indians play baseball and cheered while watching every single game and even went on a Cleveland Indians cruise with her sister Doris. During her later life, she raised her grandson Mark McCann, son of Brian McCann, in her unselfish acts of love.
Adeline will be interned in Ohio with the family sometime in the near future. We would ask that no flowers be sent but that you would please donate the cost of flowers to a non-profit organization of your choice. One suggestion is Bountiful Children’s Foundation, a world-wide organization (https://bountifulchildren.org/). Thank you.
