She furthered her education at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. Later she went on to study Education at North Carolina Central University and A&T State University.

Hildra worked in the Caswell County School System for 34 years, where she was a teacher and also a librarian.  Hildra's education skills lead her to tutor children that had problems in Math and Reading. She was also a Cub Scout-Boy Scout leader for Troop 304 for many years.

She later moved her membership to Sweet Gum Grove Missionary Baptist Church, in Mebane, North Carolina, along with her dad. Hildra served in many capacities at the church; including the Finance Committee, Sunday School Teacher, and Vacation Bible School (VBS) teacher just to name a few.

Hildra’s favorite past-times were gardening, reading and collecting stamps with her nieces.

Cherry of Mebane, North Carolina; brothers, Isaiah Phillips of Pennsylvania and Theodore Phillips (Spouse Cheryl) of New Jersey; foster brother, Charlie Mills of Pennsylvania; special nieces, nephews, loving cousins and friends.
