Hilda enjoyed reading, singing, writing poetry, and coloring. She also loved to take a ride in the country just to look at the beautiful trees. She and Lewis had a second home in Florida where they hosted family and friends, creating unforgettable memories for many. She was a wonderful, selfless mother and grandmother. She often said she wanted a mink coat but her children got a horse instead.
