Deane is a retired psychology professor at Champlain Regional College, Lennoxville, Quebec. She is the mother of four: her eldest son is the founder of TH, Graham Hill. Don is a retired Quebec Court judge and the father of two. Together they have five grandchildren with another due in August and enjoy spending time with them whenever they can.
Deane and Don's passions include back-country skiing, biking, canoeing, camping, hiking or whatever else keeps them outside. Don also makes maple syrup and plays with his tractors. Deane is an avid quilter.
They live on 85 acres in Sutton, Quebec, plenty of land to cut their own wood for heat and grow a lot of their own vegetables. In an effort to reduce their carbon imprint they have owned a Prius for the last four years, upgraded their wood stove to reduce emissions and they are currently looking into solar/wind generation.
