Hill, Joanne  
Joanne Hill Resident of San Mateo Joanne Gorman Hill passed away after a brief illness on December 18, 2014 at age 89. Joanne was born in Wisconsin in 1925 and grew up in Piedmont, California. She was the daughter of Ralph and Susan Gorman, and the sister of deceased siblings Daniel (Jean), Richard (Jeanne) and Nancy (Richard O'Neill). She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. Degree in Public Speaking. She met her future husband, the late George Hill, when they were students at Cal. They married in 1947 and were married for 66 years. George never tired of telling the story of how they met on a blind date on New Year's Eve 1946. Joanne and George settled in the East Bay, raising their children in Fremont when it was a new city. Joanne was a nurturing mother and homemaker. She was an avid gardener and especially enjoyed nurturing her begonias and fuchsias. She was a good cook, an avid reader and was active in the PTA and local politics. She stayed true to the Democratic Party and loved to engage in political discussions. One of the highpoints of her life was seeing John Kennedy in person when he came to the Bay Area. She and George lived in Silver Spring, Maryland from 1968 to 1975. They returned to the Bay Area, moving to San Mateo where they lived for 39 years. She worked as a teacher's aide in kindergarten for a short time. Joanne was a longtime member of PEO Chapter CX in Burlingame. Joanne was a loving wife, mother and grandmother to her family, and a kind and good friend to many. She had a vivacious personality, sweet charm, great sense of humor and was a fun and stimulating conversationalist. Joanne is survived by sons Stephen Hill (Barbara) and David Hill (Annabel), and daughter Margaret Pedersen (Jens), grandchildren Daniel Hill, Thomas Hill (Erica), Catherine Hill, Stanton Hill, Robert Hill and Brandon Pedersen, great-grandchildren Tessa Hill and Andrew Hill, and numerous nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by her family. Joanne was buried in a private ceremony at Skylawn Memorial Park. Memorial gifts may be sent to your favorite charity.
