May 4, 2022, 83, Goldsboro –
Hilda Powell Farmer, also known as “G.H.” by her family passed away on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at Wayne UNC Health Care. She was born in Sampson County to the late Haywood and Virginia Ray Powell on July 13, 1938. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandson, Brad Evans and sister, Janet Bradshaw King.
As an employee of Rosewood Day Care for over forty years, Hilda lovingly cared for generations of children with great compassion. Well-known at the daycare for her spaghetti that just couldn’t be beaten; her secret ingredients were a little bit of ketchup and a whole lot of love.
As long as she was able, Hilda took great pride in feeding her family. No matter what came from her kitchen, you could always count on it being good.
A true fashionista, Hilda loved to dress in trendy attire and flashy jewelry. For her, bigger was better when it came to her necklaces and earrings.
Hilda could find great pleasure in watching the interactions of other people. Wherever she traveled, her favorite pastime was to sit and watch people as they went by enjoying their day. A good meal was always on her to-do list, and she was set and ready to go anytime she was called upon.
A service to celebrate Hilda’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2022, in the chapel of Seymour Funeral Home with Pastor Andy Stovall officiating. The family will greet friends following the service at the funeral home and other times at the home of Angie and Tony Bridgers in the Rosewood Community.
Hilda is survived by her daughters, Angie Bridgers and husband, Tony, April Hatcher, and Holly Quinn; grandchildren, Tray Bridgers and wife, Nicole, Kristy Sasser and husband, T.J., Haley Evans and Grace Quinn; and great-grandchildren, Layla Bridgers, Nate Bridgers, Presley Sasser and Everly Sasser.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in her memory to the American Red Cross or please give blood. Hilda was a great supporter of giving blood when she could.
Services are entrusted to the care of Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.seymourfuneralhome.com.
