Pictured here with her three sons one month before her passing, Hilda was vibrant throughout the last year of her life. We enjoyed rich conversation, walks, meals, entertainment and chores together. We are so thankful that we could return for time with her in Utah after being away for four years.
She passed out of this Earthly world on a sunshiny July day, a lover of all things natural and spiritual. One year earlier she completed five of her Seven Canyons in Seven Days annual hiking event. Her physicality and strength of character light the way for us.
She also literally brought light in this last decade to the visually impaired and dying with her volunteer Hospice work and reading to the blind.
Let it be said, this is a woman who lived by her convictions of kindness and openness. Her example of embracing tradition and things new, while living a principled life, will burn on brightly come rain or shine.
