Barbara Elaine Hillmick passed away peacefully at home with her family in Hood River, Oregon on October 15, 2020. She was born on October 15, 1945 and was 75 years old at the time of her passing. Barbara was born in Wylam, Alabama to Elbert and Charlotte Livingston. Her father worked for general motors at the time and was relocated to California. This is where she was raised with her sister and two brothers. Barbara graduated from La Mirada High School in 1963 and soon after she married her first husband. She had her first child, Raelynn in 1964 and her second child, Trevor in 1966. They moved to Oregon in the early 1970’s and later divorced her then husband before pursuing her career with USPS in Estacada, Oregon.

While working at the post office, she met the love of her life Roy E. Hillmick. Roy had three children of his own, Ann Marie, Amy and Heath. Between the two of them they forged a family of five kids. Barbara and Roy were married on August 2, 1978 and shared a life of family, fun and good country living … the good life.
While on a family camping trip to Lost Lake Resort in Hood River, Oregon they fell in love with the idea of the business and running it. Both wanted something different in their lives, they decided to take the risk and pursue their dreams. In 1984 they successfully became owners / operators of Lost Lake resort for 30 years. Barbara and Roy met many people from all over the world. Everyone fell in love with their kind hearts and helping hands. Barbara enjoyed the young employees that worked for the business her favorite saying was “if you have time to lean, then you have time to clean.” In 2012, they sold their business and retired. In retirement they took many RV trips around beautiful Oregon.

They enjoyed lots of love, laughter, fun, adventures and many memories in all their 42 years of marriage. Barbara was an amazing beautiful woman that was taken away too soon. Barbara had a magical charisma about her. She had a wonderful contagious smile. Once you met her, you would never forget her. She was a huge influence and a great role model. Barbara was an amazing person and brought joy to everyone she met. She was known for her unconditional love and kind heart. She was always helping others succeed and be the best they could be. Barbara was quick witted and funny. She was a straight forward individual, and one always knew where they stood with her. She was honest and truthful. Barbara Elaine Hillmick you will be greatly missed by everyone who knew you.
