Hilda Boos Stetter, age 90, died on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at her home.

Born in New York City, she was the daughter of the late Anton and Elsie Glasbrenner Boos.

She is survived by her husband of 64 years, William “Bill” Stetter, and daughter, Christine Williams and her husband, Jonathan, of New Canaan, Connecticut.

There are four grandchildren, Justin Williams and his fiancée, Regina Nettleton, Morgan W. Sanford and her husband, Jonathan, Logan Williams and his fiancée, Margaret Curran, and Lauren Williams (recent graduate of Elon University).

Also surviving is her sister, Elsie Boos Stetter of Blue Grass, Iowa; niece, Connie Hartz and her husband, Steve; nephew, Bill Stetter and his wife, Eileen; and niece, Joan Petersen and her husband, Steve.

Preceding her in death was her brother-in-law, Alfred Stetter.

Mrs. Stetter had worked as a secretary on the 67th floor of the Empire State Building for many years, then in New Jersey as a medical secretary.

After retiring to the Pines, she was active in the Kiwanis volunteering in the thrift shop, a member of St. John Neumann Catholic Church where she lit the candles in the morning, and an avid golfer.

The family would like to thank Hilda’s wonderful caregivers, Laura Berges, Bonnie Reese and Annie Ayres, who became like family to her, and whom she loved like her own children.
