Beverly Ann Hildre, 75 of Arnegard, ND passed away peacefully on May 3, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family. Beverly Ann was born on April 14, 1947 to Melvin and Inga (Lofthus) Wold. She was named by her older brother, Myron. Bev grew up in the Banks community and attended Tollefson rural school and Watford City schools. She graduated from Watford City High School and attended business school in Minot, ND. Growing up she loved being outdoors. She loved animals and fishing in the creek on the farm. She was active in 4-H and was a member of the Banks Willing Workers 4-H Club. She loved music and played piano and accordian, which she continued to play throughout her life. Bev met Norris Hildre at a barn dance in Grassy Butte. Dancing was a lifelong enjoyment for them. Norris and Bev were married on October 8, 1966 at Banks Lutheran Church. They made their home in the Spring Creek community south of Watford City where they raised their 4 children, Brenda, Vicki, Anita and Marty.

Bev worked with Norris on the farm as well as working in Watford City both at the ASCS office and as an American Family Insurance agent. She was an active member, and served as president of the ND Cattle Women’s Association, was a 4-H leader and spent many hours helping her children get several projects ready for the fair every year. Later, Norris and Bev moved to the Minot area, where she continued her career as an insurance agent, retiring in 2011. During this time she became an avid quilter and was a member of many quilting groups.

Bev was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to all that knew her. She was known for her many gifted talents which included crafting beautiful quilts, baking wonderful homemade goods and growing a garden full of plentiful goods which she then would spend hours turning into canned goods. They cherished spending time at their grandchildren’s many events.

During retirement Bev and Norris enjoyed traveling all over the country, making many friends, especially enjoying their time in Texas. They loved attending rodeos and spending time with family. Most recently she and Norris resided near Arnegard, ND and celebrated 55 years of marriage in October.
