I worked with Hilma at St. Lucas. She will be sadly missed. I remember reading her letters from her family to her and she would explain who they were and how much they meant to her. I also would address many of her letters. Thoughts and prayers are with Hilma's family.

Hilma will be missed. I loved going "up north" in the summers to visit her and Malford. My dad, mom, brother, sister, myself , grandma (hilda) and great uncle George would all pack into the station wagon, boat towed behind and head up for long weekends, sometimes even a week. loved the fresh milk from the cows every morning. Somehow it allways seemed that we arrived just in time to help bale hay, and by that i mean riding on the wagon as dad chucked bales at us. after the work was done, we all headed to the lake to fish, boat loaded with so many people its a wonder we never sank. After she moved to Faribault, Hilma became part of the immediate family. Every holday her and grandma would cook up a storm. She never missed a birthday get toghether or event. Many afternoons were spent at her appartment after school, she would "mind" us till mom got off work. One of my favorite memories was at my brother Dean's wedding reception. Grandma and her got into the swing of the party and split a beer. She claims it was the first one she ever had. somehow , I believe her on that. May God welcome Hilma and keep her close.
