Sept. 19, 1914 — Feb. 4, 2014

Longtime Davis resident Charlotte Henrietta Hill, loving wife, mother and grandmother, died peacefully in her home on Feb. 4, 2014, with members of her family at her bedside. She was 99 years old and died of natural causes.

Charlotte was born on Sept. 19, 1914 and grew up in Peckville, Pa. She attended Penn State University, graduating in 1940 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Commerce and Finance. It was also at Penn State that she met her husband Fredric William Hill.

During World War II, Charlotte joined the U.S. Navy Waves. She was among the first Waves to serve as a commissioned officer after the Navy changed its longstanding policy confining Waves to the enlisted ranks in 1942.

Charlotte lived in Davis starting in 1959, along with her husband, a UC Davis professor, daughter Linda and sons James and Dana. She was known to her many friends for the energy, enthusiasm and friendliness she brought to everything she did. Her children gave her the nickname “Super Mom.”

She was active in the University Farm Circle and served as a sorority housemother. She was a member of the Davis Community Church, and loved to volunteer in its youth programs. She also played a sharp game of bridge.

Charlotte traveled widely with her family, crossing the nation many times, usually by car, sightseeing and camping along the way. She accompanied Fredric on sabbaticals, living in Japan, England, and Israel.

Charlotte was also a familiar sight at Davis municipal swimming pools, where she swam laps well into her 80s with a group of other women. In later years, the Davis Senior Center remained a focal point of her life, as she walked to the center for lunch and conversation, joining the same table of friends — usually sitting in the same spot. She rarely missed a day.

Charlotte’s husband Fredric and son Dana preceded her in death at the ages of 85 and 49 respectively. She is survived by her daughter Linda, of Pocatello, Idaho; son James and daughter-in-law Gay, of La Cañada-Flintridge; and grandchildren Sienna and Nicholas.

In Charlotte’s memory, donations may be sent to the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St., Davis, CA 95616.

Arrangements for a memorial service are pending.
