Hilda was born on the 4th of November 1925 to Ellen â€śNellieâ€ť and Martin Catlow.
She spent most of her early years and married years in Blackburn Lancashire, where she attended school in the Griffin area, and marrying her first love, Jack, on Christmas Eve, 1946. She and Jack lived in the Little Harwood area of Blackburn. Mum always had lots of friends and loved to enjoy their company immensely. Mum and Dad used to go everywhere together, and she was so excited when Dad brought home their first car, she accidentally set the kitchen on fire, having left a chip pan on the stove!! She was never happier than when her grandson Anthony came to visit. In 1985, she came to Canada to live with her daughter and son in law, and grandson in Brampton, and once again made many friends, and was always on the go, singing and dancing, and socializing. She loved to sing, and was a member of the Choir in Brampton, where they played many venues throughout the year. In 2001 she moved once again to Mindemoya, and lived in Meadowview Apartments, where she once again made many friends.
She will be remembered as a caring mother, mother in law and nan, and will be sorely missed.
