Hilda stayed with our family - Roland, Ethel, Theresa, Joyce and R.T Shepard for a short time before she and Edgar were married. Hilda had gotten her job at First Citizens Bank in Richlands and needed to be closer to her work. She was so sweet and easy to get along with all the time.
Hilda will be sorely missed by her family, friends and our neighborhood. But we know that she is welcomed by her loved ones who have gone on before to greet her in Heaven. God bless and keep all of you.
