Obituary for Ruth May Hill

Ruth Hill, 95, of Walla Walla, Washington, died on the evening of 2 January 2018 in El Dorado Hills, California where she had lived since February 1974. She attended the Orangevale Church of Christ.

Ruth grew up on her parents' farmstead on Lewis Peak, near the small town of Dixie, located in the hills outside of Walla Walla. She came of age during the Great Depression era, and taught her children to be frugal and to treasure the simple small things in life. She was a hard-working and self-sufficient woman who selflessly supported her husband and family throughout her life. She was bright, quick-witted and had a charming wry smile. Married to a civil engineer, Ruth traveled widely from her rural Washington beginnings, including six years in Mangla, West Pakistan. She also lived in Oregon, Georgia and in various parts of California. Ruth was a housewife who also worked as a bookkeeper for Woolworth's. She started working at the Walla Walla Woolworth's, later working in northern San Diego county and finally retiring after many years at the Woolworth Garden Center in Orangevale.

Ruth is survived by four children: Janice, with grandson Ron and great-grandson Sam; Richard and his wife Laurel and granddaughter Amelia; Barbara; Mark and his wife Sandie with grandsons Kevin and Eric, and Rob and Eric. Ruth is survived by many nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Iona Reid; her brother Joe and sister Marjorie; her oldest son Jerry; and her husband Ron.
