Hilda was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1985 and with the help of her husband, John; they together started a Parkinson’s support group on the Southside of Indianapolis. Hilda and John ran the Parkinson’s support group for many years until her health deteriorated to the point that they had to disband the group.
Hilda had many hobbies of which she enjoyed. Traveling was her biggest enjoyment. Hilda traveled through most of the National Parks out west in the United States and Canada. In the Artic Circle Hilda and John loved hunting polar bears, with their camera. They traveled to 48 different countries in the world and enjoyed river boating and riding on the trains. Hilda also enjoyed furnishing and decorating miniature dollhouses that her husband, John, had made for her. She would paint and wallpaper the insides, reupholster miniature furniture and create shadow boxes of furnished rooms. Hilda would shrink down photos of her trips and place them on the walls of her dollhouses. She even shrunk down a Playgirl magazine for reading material in the dollhouse bathroom. Hilda often enjoyed doing all things with her bright red lipstick and a good Manhattan or two.
