There goes Hilde ...

In November 2009 Hilde attended the dedication of her namesake park in Post Falls.
Hilde and I were members of a very special club, in fact, the only two members. We shared the dubious distinction of being the only two women who have ever run for the office of Post Falls mayor, both being roundly defeated. It was a little shared inside joke ... our special club that had no meetings or bylaws or dues. Hilde's sometimes gruff demeanor belied a big heart for the community she loved. Ms. Kellogg made an impact in Post Falls and the Idaho legislature through the years, blazing trails in this community that made the journey possible for those of us who’ve come after. The quality of life we all enjoy is due in no small part to those citizens who served in the 1970s and 1980s and had the vision of what Post Falls could and would become. Hilde left the world a better place for having lived a wonderful life of service.
Rest in Peace ... Hilde Kellogg ~ Oct. 17, 1918 to Nov. 22, 2010
