Rosalyn "Roz" Hill (1934-2017)

Roz Hill Memorial - 1934-2017

It is with great sadness that we inform you that longtime San Diego Iris Society member Roz Hill has passed away. She was an active member of our society and always brought a smile to our meetings. Roz was an avid iris gardener and will be remembered fondly by all of us in the San Diego Iris Society.

"Roz Hill passed away on the 22nd of August 2017 with her granddaughter Raechel, and several close friends by her side. She was a very strong person who never failed to voice her opinion, but always with a smile. She was not only an avid Iris lover, and active in the San Diego Iris Society, but she was a member of the Horticultural Society and a long time Master Gardner, and do not want to leave out the Edible Garden Club.

She was always hospitable and her home was open to all garden lovers. She was very generous in sharing her knowledge of what plants to buy and when to plant them. Roz loved to travel and visited a number of iris gardens locally and abroad. As a very close and personal friend I will cherish the memories I have of all the fun, and heartaches, we shared."
