Hilary Pike—loving mother of Shane Pike, cherished daughter of Kenneth and Linda Pike, beloved sister of Tim Pike and Wei Rui, and treasured niece of Robert and Catherine Pike—passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Kind, generous, and selfless, Hilary touched the hearts of so many people, from the students she taught throughout her lifelong vocation as an educator to her peers, colleagues, and countless friends, Hilary always put others before herself in the most gracious manner imaginable.
Most importantly, though, she always put her son Shane’s needs first. Whether it was driving him to basketball practices and games throughout the week or working over the summer months to make sure Shane was provided for, Hilary loved her son more than anything in the world.
Hilary’s family and friends will remember her as outgoing, fun-loving, and brimming with smiles day in and out. She will be missed and remembered by so many as someone who inspires kindness and compassion above all else, and her memory will live on in the hearts and minds of those whom she has touched.
