Hilda Alverta Isennock, 94, founded Forest Hill Realty

August 30, 1998

Hilda Alverta Isennock, a former Realtor and active churchwoman, died of heart failure Tuesday at Ware Presbyterian Village in Oxford, Pa. She was 94 and had been a Harford County resident for most of her life.

A Forest Hill resident, she established Forest Hill Realty in the early 1960s and retired in 1991. She had been former president of the Harford County Board of Realtors and the Harford chapter of the National Association of the Real Estate Boards.

She was active for over 50 years in the affairs of Centre United Methodist Church.

She was a longtime volunteer with the Red Cross, and in recognition of her years of volunteerism was named a Harford Living Treasure.

The former Hilda A. Durham was a descendant of David Durham, Revolutionary War soldier and early settler of Harford County. A 1921 graduate of Jarrettsville High School, she attended the old Towson State Normal School and taught for several years in a one-room school in Fallston.

Her 1923 marriage to Raymond Isennock ended in divorce.

Services were held yesterday.

She is survived by two sons, Francis R. Isennock of Forest Hill and James W. Isennock of Airville, Pa.; a daughter, Maribelle Ann Hicks of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; two sisters, Mary D. M. Ward of Oxford, Pa., and Anna L. D. Grove of Airville; and eight grandchildren.
