Gilda retired in 2008 after forty-nine years as an LVN. She loved to volunteer at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas, Port Arthur after retirement. She had a faithful fellowship at Ridgewood Baptist Church.
The Houston Astros were Gilda’s favorite team and she loved to watch them play. One of her last wishes was to watch them enter the World Series. She also loved to listen to Christian music, spend time with her family, and gardening. Gilda truly had a wonderful life, and she enjoyed every moment.
