She was born on December 29, 1923 in Warda to Wilhem and Anna (Pietsch) Lehmann. She became a child of God in Holy Baptism on Jan. 13, 1924, only a few days after she was born at Holy Cross Lutheran Church by Pastor Gottfried Buchschacher. Rev.

Hulda spent the majority of her youth presiding in Warda. On July 5, 1942 she married Lee Roy Graf of Round Top. Their wedding text was Joshua 24:15. They moved to Houston early in their marriage and lived there until they retired and returned to Warda.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Roy (Jan. 8, 2004), by her daughters, Rebecca (Becky) Marie Ault and Patricia Ann Graf and by her siblings.

Hulda is mourned by Michael and Corean Wilson of Pottsburo and their family, Michelle Wilson, Heidi and Steven Johnson and their child Haley. She is also mourned by Janet Gilmer and family, Matthew and Jenny Hill, Ian and Evan and Travis and Amanda Hill, Annabelle and Landon.
