Rose Elizabeth Hamill Obituary
ROSE ELIZABETH HAMILL, of Quail Valley, CA passed away on February 20, 2015 at the age of 84. She was born on August 5, 1930 in San Francisco, California, where she grew up and graduated from high school. She stayed in the bay area to attend college, and graduated with her Bachelor's degree from the University of California at Berkeley. Rose married her beloved husband, Lloyd Gilbert Hamill, on October 12, 1955, and he recently passed away on January 26th of this year. They were married for 59 years, and were like "two peas in a pod". While she was a full-time homemaker for much of that time, she also had a talent for writing and worked as a magazine editor for many years. Rose and Lloyd collaborated on numerous photography projects, and they also published several books together. In addition to her husband, she was also preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Hilda, and her eldest son, Matthew. She is survived by her children Laura, Joshua, Gina, and Melissa, her sister Dorothy, her brother David, four grandchildren, and many other loving relatives. Rose was a devout Christian, and she and Lloyd were active members of the Homebuilders group at the Garden Grove Community Church before they moved to Quail Valley. She loved reading, listening to good music, tending her chickens Henny and Penny, and spending time with her family. Rose will be buried alongside of her husband at the National Cemetery in Riverside, and a memorial service will be held at the Canyon Lake Community Church on Monday, March 30 at 11am.
