Pipke, Hilda nee Hintz

January 29, 1928 – March 25, 2023
at the age of 95 years:

        Hilda Pipke of Salmon Arm, born on January 29th 1928 passed away on March 24th 2023.

Hilda was born in Romania to parents Adam and Maria, immigrating to Canada after the Second World War.
Hilda was predeceased by daughters Ingrid Pipke, Rosemary Fulbrook ne Pipke, and her husband, Albert Pipke.
She had a gentle countenance and was loved deeply by her son Marvin, granddaughters, Robyn and Suzanne Fulbrook, and son in law, Dick Fulbrook. She will be missed by many, both family and friends.
In the coming months, Hilda’s life will be celebrated by her family, each in their own way, encompassed and guided by their individual memories of her. Hilda touched many with her openness and gentle nature.
Hilda requested that her ashes be scattered in a field of wild flowers, a very fitting choice for a woman who loved the natural world, and it’s abundance.


  1. I met Hilda when we were both singing with the Revellers group at Fifth avenue Seniors’ Centre. She was always happy to be singing, and we enjoyed her quiet personality.

  2. Dear Hilda, my dearest friend Ingrid’s mother. Hilda brought such joy to my life and we had many wonderful times especially in her garden of poppies on the Shuswap property. Dave and I tried to find her last May on our trip to Salmon Arm but she had moved from the Lodge. Thank you for posting her tribute.

  3. Dear Marvin, dear Fulbrook family, We are very sorry to hear that Hilda has passed away. We will always fondly remember our visits to Canada in 1974 and 1995 when Hilda and Albert lovingly welcomed us. We also have fond memories of 2007 when Hilda, Rosie, Robyn and Suzanne came to Dinklage. We miss Hilda’s letters and her lovely voice on the phone. May she rest in peace in her blooming meadow.

  4. Marvin, I was sorry to hear your Mom passed away. I will always remember her pleasant personality and how she always made us feel welcome.
