She was well known for her most wonderful recipes and was an excellent cook.
Hulda had many hobbies. She loved to fish, swim, travel, read, quilt, crochet and knit. (Many newborns have worn booties made by Hulda.) She was a dignified, intelligent woman with compassion and understanding for those around her. She set an example for her posterity and lived a long and worthy life. The Lord has beckoned home one of those people who truly did her best. The family would like to thank the Parkdale Nursing Home staff and doctors for their loving care.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
