HAMMETT, Rilla Jane
HAMMETT, Rilla Jane Dec. 26, 1927-March 25, 2015 Rilla was born in Toledo, Ohio and grew up in Port Huron, Michigan, 60 miles north of Detroit. After graduating High School, she worked as a radio-phone and telegraph operator for American Airlines in Tennessee for several years before moving back home to enjoy her parents before her dad passed away. She moved with her mother to San Diego, worked at a bank and then, while working as a teacher at the Arthur Murray dance studio, she met her future husband, Chuck. They were married on December 19, 1954 and moved to Lancaster, California in 1955 where she resided until her death. She and Chuck started a family and, while caring for her three sons and husband, Rilla still found time to get involved in many projects outside the home. A major part of her life involved worshiping and participating in events at Valley Bible Church. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and a caring friend who will be missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her three sons, Scott, Rusty and Jeff; a sister Nancy; 8 grandchildren and one great granddaughter. Services will be held at 1pm, Sat. April 4, 2015 at Valley Bible Church.
