    So sorry to hear about Hilma. I knew her as a neighbor growing up but did not get to know her as a person until I worked at Ridgewood and she was taking care of her uncle who was a resident. I enjoyed being in her company and always looked forward to the visits she made to her uncle as she stopped by office on her visits. So sorry for your loss.

    Mrs. Hilda was a very special lady. She was a great role model to many generations. We were In the Ladies Aid together at Athens Chapel . It was always a pleasure to meet in her home. She was a gracious hostess.
