Gail Kane Hill was a caring mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. She left this world on April 5, 2022, at the age of 77 due to renal failure. She was born to Matt Sr. and Sara Kane on January 8, 1945. After graduating from San Marino High School in 1963, Gail fulfilled her dream of being a wife to David, mother to Brian and Allison, and sister to Matt Jr.
Gail loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family. She gave smart dinner parties for friends and family. She was a skilled knitter and loved to share her craft. Her recent weekends were spent brunching with her daughter or lunching with friends. She had a special bond with her friends from Mirasol Drive where she raised her family.
Gail had a sense of adventure and wanderlust. Her favorite trip was to Italy where she took cooking classes in Tuscany. Gail and her daughter, Allison, took a road trip in Arizona where they took every scenic drive and saw every tourist attraction between Tucson and Sedona. Gail’s sense of adventure inspired her to slide down slide rock in Oak Creek Canyon. This was a special trip for mother and daughter.
Gail loved to read and was often in two to three books at a time. She enjoyed meeting with her book club friends at Royal Oaks Manor to discuss the book of the month. Her life at Royal Oaks Manor provided her a full schedule. She had a weekly card game and monthly dinner group. Gail served on several committees and enjoyed being a member of the community at Royal Oaks. It was not unheard of to reach her voicemail rather than her because she was so busy at The Manor. She referred to her life there as her perpetual cruise because of all the activities she participated in.
A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 14, at Royal Oaks Manor, 1763 Royal Oaks Dr. in Duarte, Calif.
