HILL- SMITH, Colleen Patricia (née HILL)
Precious daughter of Mr. Frederick W. HILL and the late Margaret Shirley HILL passed away on June 2nd, 2008 in San Diego, California peacefully and in the spirit of generosity that shaped her life. Just shy of sixty years, Colleen will also be deeply missed by her brothers and their wives, Paul and Carol HILL of Regina, Saskatchewan; Daniel and Anne HILL of Berkshire, England; Terrence HILL of Vancouver; also mourned by her most beloved sister and her husband, Marylyn and Jack HORSMAN of Kelowna, British Columbia. Colleen will also be forever remembered by 13 adoring nieces and nephews; Rosanne HILL- BLAISDELL, Shannon HILL, Matthew HILL, January YANKO- HILL, Kathryn HILL, as well as Misters James HILL, Connor HILL, Patrick HILL, and Joseph HILL. Together with Danielle BEARS, Jonathon HORSMAN, Andrea LEFEBVRE and Stephen HORSMAN. Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Colleen attended both Holy Rosary Elementary School and Marion High School, and will be remembered as a Provincial champion athlete in badminton. Graduating from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Montreal, Colleen began her studies at Newton College of the Sacred Heart in Boston, Massachusetts in the late 60's. This is where she met her life long best friend Leslie TALBOT, who walked beside Colleen in the last months of her brave journey. An intrepid traveller, Colleen lived and studied in India, New Zealand and Hawaii. In 1977 she married Mr. Leo SMITH of San Francisco. They ran a successful storage company together in Lahaina, Maui for several years until Leo's passing. Colleen then continued her studies in China in 1983, and the Dominican University of San Rafael in Marin County, California in 1984. She was a natural teacher, a gifted holistic health practitioner and a passionate lover of people. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Colleen will miss her genuine interest in their lives, her sage repartee, and advise (given freely), and her sparkling sense of humour. The family extends special thanks to Colleen's many devoted Friends… and our heartfelt thanks goes to The Hospice of San Diego and especially to Doctor Roger Strong and all the angel caregivers. Prayers for Colleen are at 4: 00 p.m. on Sunday, June 8 at Mother of Confidence Church at 3131 Governor Drive, San Diego, California. The funeral service will be held at 10: 00 a.m. on Monday, June 9th at St. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, 3459 Manchester Avenue, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California. Friends wishing to celebrate Colleen's memory may make a donation to the Colleen Hill-Smith Scholarship for the support of a female student at the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, Box 100, Wilcox, Saskatchewan, S0G 5E0 c/o Mr. David Kenney or to the charity of your choice.

HILL, Frederick Walter Hembling
Born September 2, 1920, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 13, 2008 at his home in Regina, Saskatchewan. Third son of the late Walter A. HILL and Grace E. HILL, Mr. HILL was predeceased by his brothers, James, Edward and Robert; by his beloved wife Margaret 'Shirley' (MULVIHILL) HILL; and most recently his daughter, Colleen Hill SMITH. Mr. HILL leaves to cherish his memory his children, Paul (Carol) HILL, Regina, Saskatchewan; Terrence HILL, Vancouver, British Columbia; Daniel (Anne) HILL, England; and Marylyn (Jack) HORSMAN, Windfield, British Columbia. He will also be remembered as their beloved Patriarch to his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, along with their families - Rosanne Hill BLAISDELL, Shannon HILL, Matthew HILL, Jan YANKO, Kathryn HILL; James HILL, Conor HILL, Patrick HILL, Joseph HILL; Danielle BEARS, Jonathon HORSMAN, Andrea LEFEBVRE, Stephen HORSMAN; and Mia HILL. He left us all a gift of Faith… 'that those who have lived in love, never see each other for the last time'. Born in Regina, Fred attended Lakeview Public School, Campion High School, and the University of Saskatchewan (B.A.). While attending the Harvard Business School in 1942, Fred joined the U.S. Army Air Force piloting B-17 Flying Fortress Bombers, serving in the 15th Air Force in Italy and the 8th Air Force in England. For unflinching service he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with Three Oak Leaf Clusters. Upon graduating with distinction from Harvard with an MBA in 1947, Fred returned to his home province of Saskatchewan to join his father in The Hill Companies real estate and insurance business. He developed the first private residential sub-division in Saskatchewan (Hillsdale) since the 1920's. He also participated in the first light sweet crude discovery oil well in Creelman, Saskatchewan. Fred's entrepreneurial skill and business judgment were revered by all those who knew him. Subsequently he became a director of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Chairman and Director of Harvard Developments Inc. (A Hill Company), Harvard Energy (Calgary, Alberta), Western Surety Company, Harvard Investments Inc. (Phoenix, Arizona), Harvard Broadcasting, and for years he considered it an honour to serve as a member of the Papal Foundation in Rome. A man of big stature, gifted with a laser intellect and a legendary humour, Fred enjoyed reminiscing and a rousing debate. He read voraciously, loved people to the extreme and was a fully involved citizen of our world. But in his quieter hours he practiced a private and direct empathy for the vulnerable amongst us. We heard him often say… 'it is far better to err on the side of generosity'. He was a Christian profoundly dedicated to his Faith. Following the death of Msgr. Athol Murray (1976), and at the request of the Board of Regents, Fred picked up the torch from his life-long mentor 'Père', to carry on the work at Notre Dame College in Saskatchewan. From that point on, Fred maintained a life-long commitment to help young students achieve their total potential in mind, body and spirit at Notre Dame. In addition, he personally dedicated his time and resources to helping countless individuals from around the world to attain their educational and spiritual goals. Many of these people were entirely unknown to his family. He was passionately dedicated to supporting Catholic and numerous other charities. In the mid 80's he assisted Mother Teresa's work in Canada. Fred proudly became a member of the Order of Canada in 1986 and was also a recipient of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the Canada 125 Medal, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and the Cross of Merit Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Most recently he was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great by Pope Benedict XVI. And now in the words of Grant Harvey eulogizing FDR… 'there will forever more be an empty place against the sky'. The body will lie in repose at Holy Rosary Cathedral, 3125 13th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan on Wednesday, July 16, 2008 from 7: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for private prayers. Funeral service will be held on Thursday, July 17th at 11: 00 a.m. at Holy Rosary Cathedral, 3125 13th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan followed by a U.S. Air Force Honour Guard ceremony at the Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery, 815 Assiniboine Ave. E. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, Saskatchewan. The Hill family has requested that all Friends and colleagues wishing to celebrate Fred's memory make a donation to the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, Box 100, Wilcox, Saskatchewan, S0G 5E0, c/o Mr. David Kenney.
