Heidi was a social butterfly that loved life and the beauty that is all around us. With her red hair, Freckles, and warm smile she brought joy to everyone around her.
Hildred and her husband Chet worked the Family farm near limeridge while raising two sons “Idaho” & “Bud”. Later she worked at Schultz Bros. store and then at the Commision on Ageing where she made to many elderly friends.
Heidi and her Husband Chet live to travel and adventure They spent several summers in Alaska and winters in Arizona and Florida never returning without the camper loaded with rocks, fossils, animal teeth and drift wood.
Mom would take in any wounded animal and nurse them back to health then release them. We had everything from Squirrels to Fox, Crow, Redtail Hawks, and Raccoons in house.In the 70’s she raised and sold Siamese cats which can still be found in the Limeridge area.
Hildred survived several strokes but thanks to her hard work and help from all her grandchildren she was able to enjoy several independent years and her Great Grandkids. I would especially like to thank Jake For staying nights and making Mom’s independence possible.
A celebration of life for Heidi will be held on Saturday, Feb. 5th. A short service at 11:00 with food and fellowship til 4:00 at the Old LimeRidge High School, 308 West Maple St, LimeRidge.
Hildreds other great passion was taking photos of Flowers and all of Natures beautiful wonders. She took pictures of family and friends at every event or gathering. I would like to ask people to bring photos of Mom with them and their family, so we can see her through your eyes.
