Hilda went on to work, first at Boeing, and later at Drexel University, as a Comptroller. After retiring, she moved to Philadelphia, until she moved to Boothwyn, with her niece, Lisa Kreider and her family. “Aunt Hilda” then joined St. Timothy’s Lutheran Church, and adopted her new found church family as her own. In 2004, Aunt Hilda decided to move to Lutheran Knolls Community, in which she enjoyed taking part in many different activities, especially becoming a member of the “Red Hat Ladies”.
Aunt Hilda is survived by her son, Kim Clark (Holly), her nieces, Lisa Kreider (Russell) and Susan Bower (Alan), and nephew, John Henry (Linda). Also survived by her grandchildren, grand-nephews and nieces, and a whole generation of great-grandchildren and great-grand-nieces and nephews.
