Memories Timeline


  1. Tilde was like a second mother to me after my mother passed away. She was a free spirit & was always there to give a helping hand to those in need. I will miss her but she will forever be with me in spirit. God Rest Her Soul … Watchout Heaven –here she comes !!

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I know she will be missed by all. Carol and Ernie Weber

  3. We are so very sorry to hear of Tilde’s passing. We loved being her neighbor and enjoyed many cups of tea together! She was missed when she moved from her lovely home, but we had a couple of nice visits with her when she was in Emerson. Our hearts are with you. Tilde was a lovely lady and a dear friend. May you all find comfort in wonderful memories and know she was so proud of all her family.

  4. I happen to have been recalling my favorite past job at "Ferolie" and "Tilde" came to memory. Then I decided to Google her name and this sad news appeared. I am terribly sorry for the Family and definitely know that you & everyone that knew Tilde were Blessed to have her in your lives! She was a kind-hearted, loving, sweet and funny person. She sometimes gave me some very good advise on life's lessons and truly cared for people. As "Robin" shared, she was like a second Mother and this is so very wonderfully said! Tilde was non judgmental and a lady with such class! God has another Angel!
