I've known Hilda for close to 40 years. We worked together at the Regional Center and shared an office for many years. Up until recently, we met for lunch quite often. She was a wonderful lady with a great sense of humor and will be missed by many people. My thoughts are with Susan, Denise and their families.

I just spoke to Hilda not too long ago. She was missing my mother in law Lavonne terribly. She was such a kind and happy lady. Hilda and Lavonne are in heaven enjoying each others company again.

Susan and Denise, I was so sad to hear about Hilda. She was such a dear lady. I loved working with her at the Regional Center. A group of us would try to get together about 4-5 times a year for lunch. It was always so enjoyable. She will be deeply missed by so many. She touched a lot of hearts. May you find comfort in God's promise of eternal life in His kindom.
