Hilda was born in Scotia, Ontario and married Donald Isard in Sudbury in 1952. Hilda was a resident of Sudbury until moving to Kitchener, Ontario in 2007. Hilda was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who always put everyone ahead of herself. She was the happiest when surrounded by family at her summer cottage on Clear Lake in Perry Township. Hilda loved her morning kayak rides, swimming, and raking leaves. In the winter she loved to cross-country ski.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the wonderful tender loving care given to Hilda from all of the staff at People Care A.R. Goudie Nursing Home.
At Hilda's request, a private funeral service will be held in Sudbury.
In Hilda's memory, a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Waterloo Wellington would be greatly appreciated.
Her memory is our keepsake, with which we'll never part. God has her in His keeping, we have her in our hearts.
