Desiree Leigh Hobill, 19, passed away on Saturday, July 5, 2008 in a fatal boating accident at the Colorado River in California.

Born on June 15, 1989 she quickly became known as Desi to her family
and friends.

A talented and accomplished athlete, Desi's passion was softball. She played and excelled first in the Torrance Girls Softball league and then in the Murrieta Valley Girls Softball League. A fierce competitor, Desi was in summer training for her second season with Mt. San Jacinto College. Besides being a dedicated athlete, she was a full time student at MSJC and was looking forward to transferring to a four-year university upon completion of her studies there.

Desi is survived by her father, Ron; her mother, Monica Horibe; brother, Mike and sister, Ashley. Desi was preceded in death by her biological mother, Cheryle Hobill; and grandparents, Hellen and Richard Ellis of Lake Isabella, California.

Desi's bright spirit and exuberance for life, along with her joyful smile and her ever-present laugh were all irresistibly contagious for everyone she came in touch with. This tragic loss of Desi leaves a huge void and broken hearts for those who now miss their beloved daughter, cherished sister, true blue friend and trusted teammate.

Family and friends will gather for services on Wednesday, July 16 at Cornerstone Community Church.
