  1. Hilda will be remembered by all who knew her as a proud, strong and independent woman. She was sweet and caring and tried never to burden others with her own concerns. Hilda had a spirit that would shame many much younger than herself. I was priviledged to know Hilda as a good friend for 19 years. I will always remember and cherish the time we spent together. I will miss her very much. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to her family whom she loved dearly and spoke of frequently with great affection and pride. Hilda rest in peace. Lovingly, Doris Zudekoff
