M. Hilda, affectionately known as Mimis, was born in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico on October 29, 1948, daughter of Gregorio Silva and Celfa "Chepita" Rodriguez. Her favorite pastimes were helping others, cooking, cleaning, and doing the laundry. She also enjoyed spending time and drinking a good cup of coffee with her sisters Juanita and Nena. Mimis dedicated her life caring for her mother “Chepita”, her mother-in-law Maria Guzman, her husband Roberto, and raising her two daughters Magda and Miriam.
