Hilda was born on July 3, 1911 Happyland, SK. She married Paul Flemmer in 1931 and began their lives together on a farm in the Mendham district. In 1947 they moved to Medicine Hat, AB and in 1950 following the sudden passing of Paul, Hilda dedicated herself to her children. She loved to garden and enjoyed crocheting. Hilda also loved to cook, especially dough meals. She always made sure no one left her home without having something to eat. In 1995 Hilda moved into Chinook Village in Medicine Hat, where she enjoyed socializing with others. In 2003 Hilda came to Calgary to be nearer to her family where she resided at Whitehorn Village. Hilda loved to play Bingo with her new found friends. She will be greatly missed by her family but will be remembered often for her wonderful smile and laughter.
