When reports of bombs falling first came in, she was evacuated with the mayor and their children to the mayor's bomb shelter. The mayor was apparently corrupt, using taxpayer dollars to fund an extravagant nuclear shelter just for his family. After the bombs fell, a mob began to gather outside, demanding to be allowed in. The mayor, realizing the mob would soon break through, killed himself by dropping a radio into his bathtub, hoping that his body could be presented to appease the mob and allow his family to live. The mob, however, stormed the facility and killed the mayor's wife and children, who were still unaware the mayor had committed suicide.
Hildenbrand's wife is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
