In the early years of their marriage Fred and Hilda farmed and ranched in the Elkwater and Robinson Districts. In 1957, they moved to the Irvine area where they lived until semi-retiring to Medicine Hat in 1980. After Fred’s passing, Hilda spent 10 enjoyable years in Chinook Village followed by 3 years in Good Samaritans. Many wonderful memories were created during family get togethers while enjoying meals prepared by Hilda, especially all of the favourite German specialties. Hilda had an incredible work ethic no job was ever too big for her to tackle and was usually completed at the utmost speed. Fred and Hilda during their retirement years enjoyed camping, attending rodeos and travelling. All of Hilda’s family were the love of her life and she will be deeply missed by all.
