Hilda M. McBride

Hilda M. McBride, age 99, passed away Saturday, February 16, 2019. She was born December 18, 1919, in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, to Selby and Blanche (Dawe) Sheppard. 

On May 8, 1942, she married David J. McBride in Everett, Mass. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, David; and also her parents, a sister and three brothers.

Survivors include three children: Diane (Ronald) Lindquist, Judy (Dennis) Masson and David McBride; 10 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Gloria Godwin and Joan Weintraub; sister-in-law, Helen Sheppard; and many nieces and nephews.

Hilda adored her family and friends, and was loved by all who knew her. She was always the center of the family, teaching them to love each other, their extended families, friends and mankind in general. She had an affinity for fun, a bit of mischief in her soul. The family was truly blessed to have her in their lives as long as they did, and Hilda set the bar exceedingly high for how to live a good life. She will be sorely missed.

A Celebration of Hilda’s Life will be held at a later date. Please visit the funeral home website for updated service information.

Memorials to The Little Red House Inc. (Adult Daycare Services) or Love in Action will be appreciated. Share memories with the family at their Online Guest Book at www.sytsemafh.com. Arrangements by The Lee Chapel, 6291 S. Harvey St. (231-798-1100).
