Z. Gail Hillis

November 9, 1949 – June 15, 2019
A classy lady, always well put together; hair and makeup done and clothes coordinated, slacks and only a dress for very special occasions. Artist of note to those who knew her with a great imagination to create something of nothing. A stellar Grandmother who always planned projects, outings and lots of things to do. A friend and supporter of her children, grandchildren and friends. Loved spending time out in the ocean with her father and later with friends. Her home was always a gathering space, with an open door. Coffee was always on. From drop in company, to being the host for weddings and other gatherings, she made everything special. She loved company expected or unexpected and preferred being home to going out. Her yard was her pride and joy, always adding interesting items from fake doors that go nowhere to a playhouse and a pond and stream. Survived by sons Paul (Leea), and Shane (Rachel), grandchildren Eve, Alex, Marti-Jayne, Presley and Eddy. Celebration of Life, September 7, 2019, 2 to 4 pm at her home.
