Hilda Anna Sinclair (nee Boyd)

September 23, 1925 - April 28, 2022


Mom was born in Kamloops as the eldest child of 8 siblings.  Predeceased by her husband Norman. Also by parents Isaac and Anna, sisters Edith (Alec) and Carol (Roy), and brother Bob (Audrey).

Survived by siblings Johnny (Helen), Dorothy (Bob), Marguerite (John) and Bill (Olive).   Also survived by daughter Kathy (Chris) and children: Lisa (Carl), Megan (Davin), David (Suzanne), Leslea (John), and Chelsea (Jeff) and daughter Jodi (Dan) with sons Aaron (Jenn) and Stewart (Victoria).  Six great grandchildren: Julia, Lily, Isla, Kate, Finley and Sloane. Pat and Debbie Stevens were very supportive family friends for mom in Quesnel.

After a memorable childhood with her siblings, Hilda left Kamloops with her sister Edith, enlisted in the Intelligence Division of the Army during WWII, and finished by decommissioning the troops at Jericho Beach.  Here she met the love of her life, Norman, who was also matriculating as a bookkeeper. They settled in Narcosli Creek/Quesnel where the Sinclair Brothers’ sawmill was taking shape.

Many things gave mom pleasure in life. As a young bride in Quesnel, she was quick to support many local organizations. Ventures included fundraising for the Legion, “Teentown”-including the Barkerville walk, and the Dunrovin committee. She was quartermaster for the pipeband, a highland dancer, and a pipeband historian. Other activities included Kinswomen, the Red Cross lending cupboard and the Golden Center.

Family was everything to mom.  She made many trips to Toronto and Duncan to spend time visiting family and celebrating various events.  Hilda especially enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, with her daughters and grandchildren. Many of her favourite recipes will live on as Gramma recipes.

Mom was a consummate dog lover and will be remembered by the community for her constant sidekicks, the last one being her Pomeranian, Lexi.

Thanks to the doctors from the Holley Clinic, the staff at G. R. Baker Memorial Hospital, who tended mom during her 70 years in Quesnel.  We would like to thank family and friends who supported mom through her final years. Dr. Hartford, Dr. Persson and Dr. Jackson as well as the excellent kind and caring staff at Sherwood House and The Hamlets in Duncan. Donations may be made to:
