CHESLEY D. HILL

Chesley D. Hill, of Santa Barbara, California, passed away peacefully on April 4, 2019, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Her exuberant spirit survived until the end as she was dancing and singing until her final days.

Chesley spent 35 years as an elementary teacher at Tiffany Park Elementary in Renton (Seattle), Washington. She loved educating with passion, singing, playing music, camping, her Seahawks (go “Beast Mode”) and her beloved cat, Henry. She was known for walking Henry on a leash around the neighborhood. Her favorite stories included telling people that the only other “Chesley” she had ever heard of was Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who landed the plane on the Hudson, and her adventures sailing on the Lady Washington.

Born November 25, 1939 in Baltimore Maryland, Chesley was the daughter of the late William Hill and the late Frances (Ruben) Hill. She is survived by her son, Eric Burkhardt of Santa Barbara, and his two children, Brigette Burkhardt and Brandon Burkhardt, both of Santa Barbara, along with her sister, Sharon Scott, of Greenville, South Carolina.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, May 25, 2019 at the Mount Baker Rowing and Sailing Center, 3800 Lake Washington Blvd S, Seattle, WA 98118.
