After attending Mennonite Educational Institute, Abbotsford, B.C., Hulda pursued her childhood dream of being a nurse. She graduated from VGH school of nursing with an RN degree. She worked in Menno Hospital, MSA Hospital, Grace Hospital in Vancouver and Sherwood Crescent Manor, Abbotsford. She served youth as camp nurse at Columbia Bible Camp (now Stillwood Camp and Conference Centre). Hulda lived with pericarditis, endocarditis and a weak immune system. A strong intercessory pray-er, she regularly sent letters to encourage her missionary brothers and their families. Hulda was well-known at South Abbotsford MB and Bakerview churches, but for her last 20 years, chronic illness prevented her from attending. She stayed in touch with Bakerview by reading church bulletins and listening to the sermons on tape.
