Hildegard arrived in British Columbia from Germany in May 1955 with her husband and two children; living in Wells, Prince George (1956-1963), Terrace (1963-2008) and Sicamous. She was a travel agent in Prince George and Terrace, as well as the bookkeeper for her husband’s architectural business in Terrace and Prince Rupert. In 2008, leaving behind many friends, Hildegard moved from Terrace to Sicamous to be closer to her family.
