Hilda Marion Magas

1945 – 2015

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Hilda Magas announces her sudden passing at her home in Cranbrook on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 70 years of age.

Hilda was born on January 18, 1945 in Yorkton, SK. In her younger years she was a great athlete and she continued her love of sports her entire life. Hilda and Peter moved to Cranbrook 43 years ago and started in the construction industry. Her best days were spent at the river at Fort Steele. Hilda suffered from psoriatic arthritis during her later years but kept up on world events and maintained her quick wit and great sense of humour. Hilda loved spending time with her family and friends and loved a good conversation.

Hilda is survived by her loving husband of 45 years Peter, son Craig (Joey), grandsons Jordan and Curtis, granddaughters Caitlyn and Rylee, daughter-in-law Cara, mother Elena Neudorf, brothers Donald (Myrt) and Clifford (Judy), sisters Betty Ramstead, Sherry (Lee) St. Louis and Bonnie (Leon) Jones and many nieces and nephews.
