For 16 years Hildegard Boyle served as an accounting clerk with Church World Service in Elkhart, Indiana.  Born in Germany, Hilde, as she was fondly known around the office, was famous among staff for her fastidiousness, no-nonsense attitude and attention to detail.  When she wasn’t working, Hilde loved to bowl and spend time with her cats,

When Hilde died at the age of 79, a trust she had established yielded more than $17,000 to bring help and hope to people in need through the work of Church World Service.
