Mrs. Hill had truly missed being able to quilt for the previous eight months as that was her true passion along with the many, many great friends she made while doing it.

Sharon Lynn Hill (maiden name Wright) was born in El Cerrito, California and moved to Southern California in 1982 for her new job with Puritan and Bennett in Carlsbad. She spent more than 25 years in the medical manufacturing field as a warehouse manager and truly loved the people and work that they did.

Retiring was not in her nature “she tried it for about 6 months” and hated it. She went back to work at a Quilt/Fabric store part-time where she thoroughly enjoyed creating, teaching and sharing all she could about quilting. The amount of fabric acquired for her passion was staggering . . .

She will truly be missed by all that love her. She is survived by her children, James Gale, Susan Gale and Brian Hill. Sister Sandra Bingman, grandchildren, Mandi Ribb, Megan Snodgrass, Jimmy Gale, Stephen Gale, Jesse Hill and Zachery Hill. Great Grandchildren Savannah Ribb, Alexander Snodgrass and (new baby girl Essie Lynn – due in July). Nieces and Nephews, Rebecca Arnold, Robert Pemberton and Roberta Ryan-Ferrage.
