Leah Ruth Hill "Together Again" 1927 ~ 2005 FARMINGTON - Leah Ruth Hill passed away on Saturday, August 20th, 2005, in Farmington, Utah, at the age of 77. Born November 8, 1927, in Salt Lake City, Utah, she was the daughter of Bertie Fairclough and Maude Lorena Sage. She was the widow of LeGrande Marvin Hill who passed away on April 1, 2004, whom she was sealed to in the Bountiful LDS Temple. Leah found her greatest joy in being in her home with her husband and family. She served in the Stake Primary Presidency. Whatever Leah did, she took pride in doing well. She was an immaculate housekeeper and seamstress. She devoted many years to genealogy work and she spent the last year of her life in doing temple work for herself, husband and other family members. Leah survived cancer for 23 years without complaint, however, was finally taken by the disease on Saturday. She was a great example to family and friends. She will be dearly missed by one and all. Leah provided a lifetime of love, dedication and support to her husband LeGrande, two daughters, Bonnie (Rick) of Farmington, Debbie (David) of Magna, and one son Gary (Bonnie) of West Bountiful; 14 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. Leah was preceded in death by her brother Leroy, and is survived by her brother Arnold Fairclough and two sisters Leone Mickel and Leola Holt.
