Hilda Margaret Wiemers was born on a farm in Poole, Nebraska. At age 20, she left the farm and moved to Kearney, Nebraska, where she met her future husband, Merlin. Together, they traveled to California and were married in 1934 in Redwood City.
In 1936, she with her husband, Merlin, and son, Norman, moved to College Avenue in Menlo Park, where she lived until her death.
The Wades joined eight other families in forming Bethany Lutheran Church in Menlo Park in 1950. Ms. Wade was very active in the church, holding many positions, including serving as president of the Mary Martha Guild.
She is survived by her son, Norman; sister Viola of Kearny, Nebraska; two grandsons; and four great-grandchildren.
