Hilda was born in Winnipeg and was one of nine siblings. She married Henry after she graduated from MEI. They had their first born, Jo-Ann, in BC and later moved to Ontario where their other four children were born. After moving back to BC, Hilda played piano and involved herself with the church. She loved crocheting for those she held dear and listening to classical music which moved her spirit upwards, every day.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the Creative Centre Society for Mental Wellness – 2676 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford, BC.
