Dr. Alberta Hill Memorial

Dr. Alberta Dee Hill, 98, passed away March 18th, 2017, at her home in Meridian, Idaho.

Funeral services were held on Friday, March 31st in Emmett, Idaho. Burial followed in the Emmett Cemetery.

There was a Memorial and Celebration of her life on Saturday, April 8th, at The United Church of Moscow, in Moscow, Idaho.

The service was attended by many of Alberta’s colleagues from Washington State University and members of the United Church of Moscow, Alberta’s home church. The service was conducted by Rev. Jodie Tooley, friend and pastor of Alberta.  Memories were shared by Alberta’s family and friends. A reception followed in the church fellowship hall.

Dr. Hill was  an iconic presence for the Family and Consumer Sciences, and a role model for many FCS professionals. She was active in the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS), the Washington Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (WAFCS), and in more recent years in the International Federation of Family & Consumer Sciences (IFHE). She extensively traveled throughout her life, promoting the strengthening of individuals, families, and communities around the globe.  Alberta will be missed by all.
