Hilda was preceded in death by her parents, Jesús Quiñonez and María Ignacia Castillo.

Hilda was born to Jesús and to María on December 31, 1950 as the middle of three children. She was raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala. In 1967 Hilda completed her education at Colegio Santa Familia in Antigua, Guatemala. She married George Spataro in 1978, and immigrated to Houston, Texas with their six month old daughter Dana. Hilda founded her housekeeping business Hilda’s Maid Service in the early 80’s. She was the hardest working woman who became very successful and popular amongst her clients because of her attention to detail and always leaving her personal touch. Hilda was always happy to help others. She was a genuine, loving person with integrity, honesty and kindness. Hilda was always working at one job or the other. She made friends very easily and those she worked for became more like family than just clients. Hilda worked for many families who she thought of as her own and often spoke of with much love. She often talked about her experiences with the people around her and always had good things to say about others. She was always so positive and in a good mood, her laugh and her smile could turn anyone's day around. She was truly a light in everyone’s life around her.

Hilda was a single-mother who always made sure she provided for her daughter first. She was heavily involved in Dana’s life until the day she became ill. Now her motherly influence has carried on to her daughter Dana, with her own child, Delilah. As a devoted grandmother, or Nana as she liked to be called, Hilda volunteered for many years for Valley Oaks Elementary PTA. She enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter Delilah at many of her school functions. Hilda loved watching Delilah perform ballet for the Academy of City Ballet of Houston from preschool through fifth grade. Her favorite ballet performances were The Nutcracker and Spring Recital. She was a selfless provider and loved her family with all her heart. She will be greatly missed by all of her friends and family. She touched so very many lives...

Hilda was an avid church goer and found her home at Unity Church of Christianity where she became a devout Christian. 

A Celebration of Hilda’s life will be held on November 13, 2021 from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM at Unity Funeral Home, 7730 Boone Rd. Houston, TX 77072.
