Mary Eberling Hilla celebrated her 99th birthday on November 1st with family and friends.  Mary has lived in Mesquite for almost eight years, the last three at the Bee Hive.  Throughout her forty year career as an RN, she has helped many people.  It was amazing to find out that friends of her daughter and son-in-law, Marilyn and John Akin, had a strong tie to Mary.  One of those friends, Jerry Livingston, she helped to deliver at Sacred Heart Hospital in Havre, MT.  Jerry and his wife Carol have become great friends with Mary and love to visit her.  All of us who have been acquainted with Mary agree with her grandson, Ray, that she is the sweetest person in the world!
