Dear Valiquette family, Our sympathy on the loss of your mom. Hilda was a friendly fun-loving person who took an interest in everyone around her. She will be missed by many.

We have so many memories of Hilda, all related to family. Family was her lifeblood and everything she did was to either teach, support, defend or love those closest to her. She was probably more of a politician than Allan but her face and the sparkle in her eye always told us what she was really thinking. We are praying for her lovely soul and for those she was so proud of. Thanks for enriching our lives, Hilda. Peace be with you. The legacy you leave is pure gold...

I remember picking crab apples from the tree in the front yard on Faraday and your mother's smile. It also was never a full winter without one chimney fire, watching your father in the front yard looking at the roof and your mother in the front doorway.
So sorry to hear of your loss.
