Obituary of Hilda Margaret Anderson
Hilda (Whitt) Anderson
May 8th, 1926 – October 3rd, 2021
Hilda was born on the family farm near Medstead in 1926. She attended Daylight school and left there to begin working as a caregiver, spent a short time working in North Battleford then returned home to work in the creamery in Medstead.
In 1946 she married her sweetheart James (Pat) Anderson. It was on the same farm she was born, they farmed together and raised their family of five children. Hilda was an amazing homemaker who had many talents including cooking (canning), gardening (often using her own seeds), knitting, crocheting and quilting. She loved celebrating important moments (like birthdays) with family and friends over a good meal or with tea and goodies (lots of goodies!) and always lots of laughs! Any day she was surrounded with a house full of family and friends was when she was happiest.
Spending time supporting her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren was important. Hilda did this through prayers, lots of berry picking, going to rodeos, cheering at hockey games, ball games and other sports and attending as many birthday parties and grads as she possibly could.
Hilda and Pat moved to Spiritwood where she continued homemaking, was involved in her church and in recent years enjoyed going for coffee with her friends.
She was loved dearly and will be greatly missed by her children: Louise (Ken) Mills, Jim (Deb) Anderson, Doris (Grant) Schweitzer, Edna (Remi) Boissonnault, Kevin (Becky) Anderson; grandchildren and great grandchildren, her sister in law Joyce Anderson, numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives & friends.
She is predeceased by; her husband James (Pat), her parents Louie and Harry Whitt, parents in law James and Grace Anderson, brothers and sisters in law, Bob(Lucy), Bill (Doris), Alf and Herb, Belle Gresdal and Agnes (Bill) Grice. Her step granddaughter Jana-Lea Schweitzer.
