Patricia Jean Hill

September 9, 1920 — October 2, 2017

With the passing of Pat Hill, Heaven has gained an ardent advocate for health and social issues, a tireless volunteer for her church and the arts, and a caring friend to many. Born September 9, 1920 in Ontario, CA to Donald and Hazel Tucker Hill, she died peacefully October 2. Pat is survived by her nephew William Ingalls and his wife Kathryn of Dade City, FL. Pat attended Pomona College and trained as a physical therapist in an expedited program to qualify her as an Army PT in World War II. She served from 1941-1945 and was stationed in several hospitals in England and France. Following the end of WWII, Pat earned her AB in Physical Education from Pomona College, a teaching credential from Fresno State College and an MPH in Health Education from UC Berkeley. Pat worked 31 years for the Department of Education and made significant public health contributions for migrant families and physical education in our schools. For more than 60 years, she was an active member of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, during which time she was an ardent advocate promoting the role of women in the church. Pat was very active in supporting the Crocker Art Museum, especially in acquiring donations for their annual Antique Show and Sale. She advocated with ACT (Area Congregations Together) on education issues and health care reform and with the Church in the World Commission on violence prevention, particularly domestic violence. A memorial service will be held October 14, 1PM at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 2620 Capitol Ave., Sacramento. Donations in Pat's memory may be made to the Trinity Cathedral Memorial Fund, 2620 Capitol Ave., Sacramento 95816 or River City Food Bank, 1800 28th St., Sacramento 95816.
