Hilda Wahl, daughter to William and Emma (Werre) Schneider, was born Oct. 26, 1927. As she grew up she went to country school and graduated from Java High School. She went to Northern State College to get her teaching degree. She taught at Campbell, Walworth and McPherson county schools for many years.
She married Merle E. Wahl on Sept. 8, 1950. They lived on the Wahl homestead for many years, just 10 miles south of Mound City. When they retired from the farm they moved to Mobridge, where they lived for 17 years. During those 17 years, Hilda worked at the Selby nursing home for several years. When she left there she went to work at the Mobridge nursing home for a while and then to Burger King as a greeter. After her various jobs, she dedicated her life to taking care of Merle and her home. In March of 2012 they moved to Aberdeen on a small hobby farm with their son Eldon and Jane.
She loved to garden, go on trips, play cards, and loved to cook and bake for large groups. She was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church Women’s Organization.
