Our wonderful Mother, Hilda Mary Wilkinson (nee Edwards) passed away peacefully on Friday, February 15, 2013 in Arborfield, Sask at 89 years. Hilda was born on January 7, 1924 to Arthur and Sally Edwards of Zenon Park, Sask. She married the late Percy Wilkinson in 1947. They began their 62 years of marriage in Perdue, Sask. and moved to Arborfield in 1967. Over the years, they owned and managed the café in Perdue and Wilkinson's Grocery in Arborfield and later cooked for Fortier's Catering in Alberta. Hilda was devoted to her family, friends and church. With a generous and hard-working spirit, she shared her prize-winning baking, knitting, embroidery, quilting and garden produce, but, most of all, her time, compassion and love. One of her greatest pleasures was spending time with her children and their families over a home-cooked meal or a friendly game of cards. She was a dedicated member of the Anglican Church of Ascension, Royal Purple and Seniors in Arborfield. She was a woman of faith with a true servant's heart and the rock and foundation of her family. She enriched the lives of all she knew and loved. Hilda is survived and will be remembered by her son Ed (Caroline) Wilkinson and daughters Iris (Gary) Phillips and Rita (Terry) Stagman; grandchildren Jodie (Darcy) Kurysh, Ryan (Kristine) Wilkinson, Devon (Kirsten) Phillips, Mark (Krea) Phillips, and Stephen and Victoria Stagman; great-grandchildren Kennedy, Keaton, Hadley, Jackson, Liam, Logan and Hayden; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Hilda was predeceased by her husband, parents and her five siblings. A Funeral Service will be held at St. Lucy's Catholic Church, Arborfield on Monday, February 25 at 1:00 p.m. Interment will be at Arborfield Municipal Cemetery followed by a time of fellowship at Arborfield Community Hall. For friends so wishing, memorial donations may be made to the Anglican Church of Ascension, Arborfield, Sask.
