Hilda was an outstanding friend to all and a successful homemaker. She enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. She was an active member of Salem United Church of Christ in Alhambra, IL, long-time member of the Sewing Circle group who enjoyed gathering for breakfast more than sewing, and enjoyed the activities at the Eden Village Assisted Living Center. She traveled widely in the U.S. to visit children & grandchildren, took a trip to Japan, and enjoyed a cruise at the Hawaiian Islands. She enjoyed all aspects of her life.
Special thanks to the Eden Village Center for their loving care, planned excursions, and group activities which made Hilda’s last 5 years of living there very enjoyable and rewarding. Another thanks to the Eden Village Hospice Care Center for their excellent care in her last days.
