Hill, Estella Minnie Shipp Mrs. – Obituary

Estella Minnie Hill, 91, died after a short illness May 27, 2008, at Settlers Park Assisted Living Community with her family at her side.

A celebration of Estella’s life will be held in Salem June 13.

Estella was born Aug. 4, 1916, in Vernal, Utah to George W. Shipp and Bessie I. (Bradshaw) Shipp. During her life, she was a homemaker and outside of the home worked as a bookkeeper, providing income for the family after the 1944 death of her husband, Cecil, whom she married in 1937. She moved to Baker City in 2005.

Estella’s special gift in this life was caring for others. This was shown in many ways, but especially in the love she demonstrated to her family as she helped raise her siblings, her children and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, two daughters, a sister and a brother.

Estella is survived by her daughter, Sherrie Shephard and her husband, Wally, of Baker City; her son, John Flowerday and his wife, Sue, of Salem, Oregon, eight grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren, as well as her sister and her three brothers.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to MayDay, Inc. as a memorial to Estella’s earthly life and the impact she had on those who loved her, through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
