June 10, 1931 - May 6, 2020 Mrs. Hildreth, 88, of Concord, passed away Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at Five Oaks Rehab in Kannapolis, due to complications from pneumonia. Marie was born June 10, 1931. She graduated with honors from Cannon High School in 1950, where she was a member of the Beta Club and National Honor Society. She and Chancey Carlton "C.C." Hildreth were married 61 years before his death in 2011. They lived in Charlotte and later moved to Concord where C.C. worked in water works sales and Marie was a bookkeeper and housewife. She was active in her churches, Plaza Presbyterian of Charlotte and Rocky River Presbyterian of Concord, where she received an Honorary Life Membership to the Women of the Church. She enjoyed teaching Sunday school and leading Bible lessons for her circle. She loved gardening, cooking and decorating. Her yard was immaculate, and her family was always treated to delicious meals. She was an excellent seamstress, sewing many beautiful garments, including her daughter's wedding dress. Family was her number one value, and she was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. In November of 2019, she was thrilled to see her great-grandchildren visiting from Colorado and enjoyed eating chocolate candy with them. She talked to her daughter last week and told her that she wanted her family to be safe from the virus. Mrs. Hildreth is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Carolyn Hildreth; her daughter and son-in-law, Michelle and Randy Anderson; her grandson, Matthew Hildreth and wife, Melanie; granddaughter, Kathryn (Katie) Mendez and husband, Gregory "Greg"; granddaughter, Paige Anderson; and three great-grandchildren, Abby, Danny, and Drew Mendez. She was preceded in death by her husband, Chancey. A private service will be held for the family Saturday, May 9.

I am so sorry for the loss of Marie. She was such a sweet person. She was my Dad's cousin and when he was in a wreck several years ago she visited him at his rehab a couple of times a week while he was there. That meant so much to him. She will truly be missed.
