Hilda was a very special lady. She had a beautiful and warm smile and she always enjoyed a good laugh. She was kind and always willing to help another person. While we were not related by blood or birth, we were family. Hilda will be missed by many. My heart felt sympathies to the family.

Hilda was such a sweet person! I enjoyed getting to work with her while I worked with the Community Service Work Program at the courthouse. Prayers for your family during this time.

Hilda was a wonderful person and a dear friend. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word to everyone. I would see her everyday in the courthouse when I worked at the Sheriffs Dept. I am so sorry for the Willis family. May God give you peace and comfort.
