HILDA JOHNSON – May 21, 2014

Hilda lived her life in awe of God and in love with people
She was a friend of God, wife to Ed, a mother and a grandmother
So many people depended on her
She had a passionate heart for service
People count with Jesus and they counted with Hilda

Her deeds and exploits are too many to detail
They involved helping when she in fact needed help
Suffering with others when she was suffering painfully
Doing for the needy when she could barely walk
She never backed down from the commitment to serve Jesus

A Saint in ordinary clothing
A servant of the most-high God
She knew the great need around her
She fought valiantly every day to meet that need
Devoted to Jesus-she deeply loved her family and completed Ed

Kindness and gentleness were two of her strengths
She had the heart of a champion
A will of iron and a cheerful spirit
Feet that never tired spreading the Gospel
Hilda now serves with Jesus-we will miss her every day
