Hilda Dick

1927 – 2021

Ms. Hilda Dick of Lethbridge, formerly of Coaldale, passed away peacefully at St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre on Thursday, June 24, 2021 at the age of 94 years.

Hilda was born on May 4, 1927 in a simple farm building on a farmyard six miles southeast of Coaldale, Alberta. Having arrived half an hour after her twin brother Walter, she officially became the eighth child in the Johann and Liese Dick family which eventually numbered 13. She was always a busy person even at an early age, helping her twin brother strip beautiful ripe berries from a current bush and scattering them on the ground. Later, she focused her energies on more positive endeavors, teaching Sunday school and preparing Christmas presents for her many nieces and nephews. Ministering to patients in the Coaldale hospital and for 34 years serving in the Coaldale Medical Clinic was her life occupation.

When her parents retired in 1957, Hilda became their care giver in their home in Coaldale. After her father passed away, she continued to care for her mother for another 34 years. Later she continued her ministry to her only surviving sister, Louise Allert in Black Rock Terrace for two years.

Hilda is survived by three brothers, a host of nieces and nephews as well as many friends who’s lives she has impacted though her church and the Coaldale community, plus those friends at Black Rock Terrace who became family.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4th Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta with Pastor Gary Burke, officiating.

A Private Family Interment will follow in the Coaldale Mennonite Cemetery
