In memory of
Hilde Peterson Fordyce
Hilde Peterson Fordyce Nov. 14, 1927 - June 4, 2019 Hildegarde "Hilde" Peterson Fordyce (née Furtney) passed peacefully Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at age 91 with the love of her family sending her home. Hilde was a proud Oregon native born to first generation American parents, the granddaughter of Swedish immigrants. A graduate of Commerce High School, later Cleveland High School, she knew her native Portland inside and out. Walking down the street with her was a lesson in architecture, history and horticulture. In 1948, she married her first husband Frank E. Peterson with whom she had her greatest treasures in her daughter, Heidi and son, Eric. In October 1982, she married Jack Fordyce, the great love of her life. They shared a beautiful love that she described as "divine." A lifelong learner, Hilde delighted in discovering new trades and worked in a number of fields including architecture, banking and real estate. She traveled extensively and loved golf, the outdoors, symphony, theater, literature and most of all, her family. Hilde is dearly missed and sweetly remembered by her children; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life will be held from 1 - 3:30 p.m, Sunday, June 23, 2019, at the Eastmoreland Golf Course. Please sign the online guest book at www.oregonlive.com/obits
