Bidding Farewell to Lou Hildreth

Back to News

Lou Wills Hildreth
July 13, 1928 – February 28, 2019
Heaven’s choir has grown by one more voice this week.  Lou Hildreth was a part of the Homecoming Friends for several years and we will miss her earthly presence but know she is singing today with the Saints!  We are going to miss your beautiful smile, Lou!  See you in the big house!
A few years ago our friend, Emily Sutherland, did a quick video interview backstage with Lou at one of our Houston concerts.  Click below to see. 


UPDATE: The memorial service for Lou Wills Hildreth will be Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at West University Baptist Church located in Houston, TX.
