Barb says Hilda’s year of birth was 1898….that would place her death in abt 1922 or 1923. Unfortunately, none of these three obits clarify the year of death.***UPDATE**The obituary of the youngest son,Richard,has been found. Richard was born July 3, 1923--his mother, Hilda, died seven months later on Feb. 17, 1924.]
