He offered her accommodation in a cottage attached to his home.Just before leaving Weatherfield for good, Hilda sold No.13 to the Websters at a generously low price, so they had somewhere to live without having to leave the neighbourhood.

Due to Stan's drunken rages, two of their children - Tony and Sylvia - were taken into council care, and their other two children - Irma and Trevor - ran away from home.
They lived on the breadline, with Hilda holding up to five charing jobs at once just to keep the house going, compensating for Stan who ducked out of work whenever possible to drink and laze around.
No one knew Stan's flaws better than Hilda, who often had to nag him out to work, but for the most part she doted on him and defended him vehemently against his detractors.
Except for the rare social occasions, Hilda wore her hair in curlers and a headscarf.
She was the Street's principal gossip and revelled in spreading it around, particularly if it could cause trouble.

As part of her continuing quest to gain the respect and envy of the neighbours, Hilda erected a mural on No.13's parlour wall.
