She graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1943. Her best friend Priscila (Morgan) Paradis introduced her to Robert McIntyre in 1947. He proposed on Christmas and they were married in Port Orchard on January 25, 1948. Her dream of being a mom was fulfilled with the birth of daughters Kathleen and Deborah (Debbie). She was devoted to her children and all their activities. Summer camping trips and razor clam digging gave her such happiness. Her love of children continued with the birth of her granddaughters and four great-grandchildren. She was an avid Mariners and Seahawks fan. She had a lifelong love for animals. Her cake decorating skills were like no others! She was predeceased by her parents, husband Robert (Bob), brother Robert (Bobby) Hill, sister Leona Morrison, granddaughter Kelli Chittenden, and her three special friends, Priscilla Paradis, Joan Orser, and Verna Jackson.
