In 1991, Hilderbrand earned a doctorate in educational administration at Temple University, and in 2007, she retired as assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction in the Perkomen Valley School District.
On Friday, June 1, Mr. Huling, 92, chairman of the Montgomery County Planning Commission from January 1994 to December 1995, died at Brittany Pointe Estates, a Lansdale retirement community, where he had lived since 1994.
The Montgomery County Board of Commissioners had appointed Mr. Huling to the commission in February 1976.
To recognize nearly 20 years of service, the Planning Commission approved a resolution upon Mr. Huling's retirement from the agency that, in part, thanked him for his efforts "to make Montgomery County a better place to live, work, and raise a family."
Mr. Huling, who retired in 1989 as vice president of the Collegeville Flag & Manufacturing Co., had several accomplishments besides his planning work.
He was a board member of what is now the Perkiomen Valley School District. He was a member of the Collegeville Borough Council from 1986 to 1994, when he retired as its president.
He was a church council member, and council president from 1978 to 1985, of Trinity Reformed Church, United Church of Christ, in Collegeville.
And he was president of the Brittany Pointe Residents Association in 1995 and president of the Presidents' Council of the Northern ACTS Residents Association in 1996. ACTS operates several retirement communities.
Born in South Williamsport, Pa., Mr. Huling earned a bachelor's degree in agriculture at Pennsylvania State University in 1941, joined the Army before the nation declared war, and served as a Signal Corps officer in the Philippines and, after the war, in Japan.
After working for a Lycoming County office of the Veterans Administration and serving as president of the school board in Woodward Township there, he moved his family to Collegeville in 1959, beginning a 30-year career at the Collegeville Flag & Manufacturing Co.
In addition to his daughter, Mr. Huling is survived by his wife of 68 years, Ruth; a son, Stephen; four grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. A daughter, Ruthann, died in April.
A memorial service was set for 2 p.m. Sunday, June 24, in the auditorium of Brittany Pointe Estates, 1001 Valley Forge Rd.
