RAUSCH, Hilda Lillian
June 19, 1945 — October 7, 2021
Hilda Rausch passed away on October 7, 2021, at the age of 76. Her independent and loyal spirit will be missed.
Born in Beauvallon, Alberta, Hilda lived in the Edmonton, AB area. Joining many of her Albertan friends, she moved to the Okanagan in BC with her late husband, Neil. A force to be reckoned with, Hilda was exuberant and kind. As an Administrative Assistant with Enbridge, she had a strong work ethic and great sense of humour. She had an exceptional sense of fashion and style. She generously welcomed others to her home (each exquisitely decorated by her). And if there was a good party to be found, most likely Hilda was there.
The memory of Hilda will be carried on by her loving family: her brother Marshall (Rose) Chemy; sister-in-law Barbara Chemy; and her nephew Wayne (Kelly) & niece Jacqueline (Brad) Chemy. She will also be remembered by her stepchildren Allana (Daniel) Hemenway, Janna Rausch (Walter Richards), Timothy (Gina) Rausch, and Amanda Rausch; her grandchildren Logan and Carter Richards; and many more extended family members. In 2019, Hilda was predeceased by her love, Neil, whom she married in 2004. She was also predeceased by her father Joseph in 1981 & mother Annie in 2005, and her brother Victor Chemy in 2006.
The family wishes to express their gratitude for Kay, Pam & Rennie Cyril, Wayne Chemy, and Dr. Alanna Leverrier.
Memorial donations may be sent to BC Cancer Agency – Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior.
