Linda K. Hill. On June 6, 2011 our family and the community of Lakewood lost a beautiful light of a woman. She was a soulmate to Dino, daughter to Ralph and Tomoko, sister to Steve and Sandra, and mother to Tanya, Tera, Roc, Sean, and Lydia, plus countless other “adopted children” along the way. Her legacy lies not only in the values she instilled in so many of us, or her dedication to her church and fellow SGI-USA members, but also in the caring embrace she reserved for her family, a multitude of friends, and anyone in need. Memorial services will be held at the Lakes High School Performing Arts Center on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10:00AM. Arrangements by Mountain View Funeral Home. 253-584-0252.
