It is with great sadness that we, the family of Linda Lee Hill announce her passing on November 29, 2020 in Modesto, Ca. Linda was born in Colusa, Ca to Jacob and Esther Schantz on April 21, 1948. She was a longtime resident of Colusa County.
She married Jerry Urchison Sr. in 1964 and enjoyed 10 years of marriage and together had four children prior to his death in 1974. She later remarried to Lee Roy Hill and together they had three boys.
Linda’s number one priority was her children and grandchildren. She loved reading, especially bible scripture. She loved fishing and enjoyed watching the 49’ers play even though she would have preferred their uniforms be blue.
She was a fabulous cook and she lived her life on her own terms and for her children. Her family will always remember her radiant smile, kind heart, and warrior like perseverance. She was an independent woman, who had her own way of doing things and could be fiery when provoked.
She moved to Modesto 35 years ago and worked for some time as a nurse at Evergreen Hospital.
She was preceded in death by, her son Chance Urchison; two grandsons, Zachary Maupin and Zachary Urchison; and her siblings, Jack Schantz, Patricia Hancock and Joyce Salyer. Linda will be deeply missed by her children Jerry (Lisa) Urchison II, Angela Urchison, David (Jennifer) Urchison, James (Randi-Ann) Hill, Lee Hill II and Rodger (Maria) Hill; siblings Don Schantz, David Schantz, Roger Schantz, Kay Ann Peck, Keith Schantz and Jerry Schantz. Her legacy lives on with 24 grandchildren, Jakeup, Chenoa, Brittany, Patricia, Angela, Dustin, Jennifer, Adrian, Natalie, Jordan, Landon, Mason, Kayona, Tylar, Chance-Cody, Clarissa, James Jr., Thomas, Dewey, Destiny, Harley, Jerry III, Adam and Shelly; and great-grandchildren, Michael, Stefan, Emery Grayson, Samuel and Avah.
