MATSUO, Hildegard (nee Schwarz) February 17, 1931 - July 31, 2018 Passed away peacefully in Victoria on July 31, 2018, at the age of 87. She is survived by her loving husband, Robert, of 57 years, son, John and daughter Kirsten, sister Wanda, brother Albert (Marieanne), sister Herta (Peter) and nieces and nephews. Hilda taught school for many years and then she worked as a laboratory technician where she met her husband-to-be. Two children completed the family so she devoted all her time to raise them. She developed a keen interest delving into family history so she spent a great deal of time on genealogy. She did very well in unearthing close to one thousand names. She was a very avid gardener. and she had a marvelous sense of design and the garden that resulted was a sight to behold. A Celebration of her life will be held on August 24, 2018 at Luther Court at 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Luther Court Society.
