Our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Arleene "Mike" Hills, passed away peacefully on August 9th, 2018, surrounded by her family. She will be remembered walking the shoreline of Bear Lake with her schnauzers alongside her, and a majestic sunrise as her backdrop. Her family, friends and community are grateful to have felt her love, support, generosity, and guidance. She was our anchor and will be deeply missed.
Mike was born in Downey, Idaho, to Jesse and Louise McClellan. She grew up in Montpelier, Idaho and graduated from the University of Idaho. She was a member of Alpha Phi sorority. A woman of strong will, ambition, and determination, Mike excelled in her professional endeavors. She lived for retail by owning her own needlepoint shop, working at Nordstrom and at the Little America Gift Shop. She had a passion for antiques, photography, art, and volunteering.
The family will have a private celebration of life on a later date. We would like to thank the caring staff of Beehive Home in Sugarhouse and the St. Mark's Hospital nursing staff for their kind and compassionate care.
