Hilary Cornell Kanwischer, age 54, passed away peacefully July 20,2022. Hilary was born April 29, 1968. She was a loving daughter, mother, sister and wife. Hilary proudly served as a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of North Lauderdale for 27 years.

Hilary is also remembered by hundreds of brother and sister firefighters in South Florida. Many people were touched by her kind soul and ability to express her feelings through craftwork. Hilary made a heroic battle against cancer for several years the same way in which she lived her life as a firefighter. I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one, I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave behind when the day is done Please join us celebrating her life Monday morning at Sanctuary Church in Fort Lauderdale July 25, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. followed by a fire department procession to the Cemetery Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery in Royal Palm Beach at 2:00PM at In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Firefighter Cancer Foundation
