Hilda Luella Graves (Dimock) May 13, 1931 - March 5th, 2021
Today, with heavy hearts, we are announcing the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Hilda Luella Graves (Dimock).
Hilda lived her life to the fullest. She was born in Havelock, NB, on May 13, 1931, to the late Leland and Mary Dimock (Thorne). She was predeceased by her husband Elton and her brother Horace Dimock. She quietly passed away in her home with her two daughters by her side on March 5th, 2021, after a lengthy battle with cancer.
She was a long-time member of the West Lane Baptist Church and a member of the WMS. Her faith was an anchor and helped her through many difficult times. She was the rock of our family and now she is home with her Lord and Savior.
She retired in her 60's and filled her free time with traveling around the world, knitting socks, sweaters and mittens for her family and hats for premature babies at the hospital and mittens for students at Beaverbrook School. She enjoyed doing puzzles and traveling out west to spend time with her two great-granddaughters Zoë and Prudence.
She leaves behind a son, David (Irina) Graves residing in Portugal; two daughters, Sheila Bampton, residing in Moncton, and Susan (Phillip) Anthony, residing in Quispamsis. She also leaves behind granddaughters, Amanda (Jonathan) Milke, Jennifer (Bryan) Arseneau, Julia Anthony, Jessica (Jonathan) Grimes & Rebecca (Adam) Dempsey. She was survived by five great-grandchildren.
There will be a private family service, with Covid-19 restrictions in place, at the Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800) on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 with Pastor Scott Ryder officiating. Interment at Greenhill Cemetery, Havelock at a later date.
If desired, memorials to West Lane Baptist Church, Greenhill Cemetery or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
