The passing of Brunalda “Hilda” (née Schedlosky) Simmer of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, occurred at her residence on Sunday, March 27, 2022. She was 91 years of age. Hilda was born on March 10, 1931, to Alex and Minnie (née Kabelsky) Schedlosky at home on the family farm in the Burr district, southwest of Humboldt. She attended Manor Park School in the area, then St. Ursula’s Academy in Bruno, SK, and Humboldt Collegiate Institute in Humboldt. Hilda continued her education at Teacher’s College in Saskatoon, SK, and taught in the area. In her early 40’s she upgraded her education through St. Peter’s College in Muenster, SK, by going to summer school as well as taking night classes. In 1953 she married Raymond Stolz. He died in a tractor accident about a year later. Several months later, daughter Patricia arrived. On December 29, 1956, Hilda married Bill Simmer from Englefeld. Three more children were added to the family. In 1960, the family moved to Humboldt and Bill continued farming from town. Hilda enjoyed quilting, playing cards, camping, and traveling. She loved the R.V. life. She and Bill toured many parts of Canada, and the United States, including Alaska. They escaped the cold winter months by going to Apache Junction, AZ. Other tours took them to Europe, New Zealand, Australia, plus a Panama Canal cruise.
