Hildred really loved her family and spending time with them.

She was always willing to help anyone, if she was able. She was a member of the Dannemora Catholic Daughters. She held different jobs over her lifetime, but her last one was working in the cafeteria at Northern Adirondack Central School where she was the friendly face that students saw when they went to the cafeteria.
