June 07, 1935 – June 12, 2017
at the age of 82 years
Hilda passed away peacefully on June 12, 2017 at the age of 82 years. She was born on June 7th, 1935 and lived in Kamloops until the family moved to Creston where she graduated from high school. Upon graduation she moved to Nelson to work for the Imperial Bank and it was there that she met and married Robert (Bob) Robinson in 1955. They raised their three children – Teresa, Graham and Cynthia – in Nelson. Upon becoming empty nesters, she and Bob embarked on a new adventure as the owners of the Rainbow Resort in Balfour, BC and later on the Creston Cleaners and Laundry before finally retiring to the Lower Mainland.
Hilda is survived by her daughter Teresa, son Graham, daughter Cynthia, grandsons Robert and Sean, granddaughter Allysa, great-grandchildren Leia and Aiden, and sisters Betty and Ann. She was predeceased by her parents Marie and Albert Brunner, her husband Robert and her sister Ruth.
Hilda’s family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to the staff at Mount Ida Mews for the compassionate and professional care provided during her residency.
In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting that those who wish to remember Hilda in a special way can make a donation to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or BC Children’s Hospital.
No service, by request. There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.
