    I have so many fond memories of Hilda growing up as a young girl on Montreal Street in Regina. She was a treasured and dear friend of my parents, Bert and Loretta. Although tiny in stature, Hilda was a giant in heart and talent. She lived her life with grace, elegance and generosity. Hilda was the epitome of what true neighbourhood friendship should be! Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss and sadness. Bert Kuffner and Cheryl Wowk
