Faye Green LeeTuesday, April 20, 2021 Hilda was a childhood friend of mine. She joined our class in Mt. Vernon Elementary School and was well thought of by all our classmates. We graduated from Citronelle High School together in 1961. I will always remember Hilda as a sweet, pleasant person and I don’t recall her ever speaking ill will of anyone. I think she was truly a fine example of a God fearing lady. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.
