Before retiring to Big Spring, she lived on the family farm with her husband Glen. They had three children, grew cotton, had a few head of cattle and enjoyed being with and doing things with the family. We had family reunions every year at the lake house on Lake Spence followed with a fish fry until the lake dried up. She was at every family reunion until she got to where she just couldn't make them anymore.
Our mother was the best of the best and she will be missed dearly. Anybody who ever knew our mother would say that she was one of the best women they ever knew she never had a bad word to say about anyone that I ever heard of. She loved flowers and hummingbirds. She loved to watch the deer running across the yard in the early morning hours. The Hillger family was the 2001 Recipient of the Howard-Glasscock Old Settlers' Reunion award for the oldest family still living.
Serving as pallbearers are Russell Parks, Andrew Garza, Casey Henry, Joseph Hillger, Ransom Parks, Ronnie Hillger and Chris Ford. Those serving as honorary pallbearers are Drayklyn Henry, Malachi Thomas, Andrew Garza, Weston Ford and Colton Hillger.
