In Memoriam: Hilda Baré, 90
Kathy Barrios writes:
With sadness I report that Hilda Baré passed away on November 22, 2019, in São Paulo, Brazil, at the age of 90. Hilda began working for Chase in Rio, serving as the Executive Assistant to several Country Managers, including Alfredo Salazar and Peter Anderson. She relocated to São Paulo when the Chase HQ moved to that city. Hilda left Chase in the wake of the Chemical merger. I was fortunate to hire her to assist me in the new Brazil operation I was setting up for Standard & Poor’s. Hilda was already in her seventies at that point but she worked tirelessly, with dedication and loving concern for all her colleagues. Hilda had the phone book for every CEO in Brazil and could always get me in to see any person who would be helpful to build S&P’s franchise.
Hilda suffered unspeakable personal tragedy in her own life yet met the world with cheerfulness, caring for all. May she now peacefully join her beloved family and friends who passed before.
