I will never forget Hilda and her sweet spirit. She always made me feel so special when she came to the bank. She made the most delicious chicken salad in the state! My heart goes out to you Billy and Alex. My prayers go out for you! There will never be another Hilda!

At age 16, I started working at Conover Drug for Hilda and worked there for many years. Hilda was like a second mom to me as my mom lived in another state. Hilda was always so good to me. I will never forget how she would bring me leftovers after her and Alex’s dinner at night. I especially liked her homemade spaghetti. She had such a big heart and wonderful laugh. She was always on the go and such a hard worker. She sure loved her boys so much. Billy and Alex, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. ♥️ Vickie Schlichting
