Myrtle Louise Hill, age 88, of 3272 Harvey Road, Washington, went home to be with Jesus Friday, Aug. 9, 2019, surrounded by her family.
A memorial service will be held Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2019, at 5pm at Woodard’s Pond Church of Christ, officiated by Eddie Gurganus. A visitation meal with family and friends will be held in the fellowship hall after the service.
Mrs. Hill was born in Chowan County to the late Nonnie and William Edward Smith. She is survived by her children, Melinda Mills, of the home, Mike Hill (Brenda), Kay Lee, and William Allen Hill (Glenda); 11 grandchildren, Tammy Cutler (Kevin), Tony Mills (Jennifer), Wayne Mills (Kim), Kevin Hill (Sammi Jo), Dawn Ramirez (Mo), Courtney Hill, Caitlin Barrow (Josh), Melissa and Thomas Thurman, Kitty Hedgepeth (Eddie), and Jr. Mills (Carla); 19 great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl Mendel Hill; two sisters, Geneva Trueblood and Ruth Lee Winslow; one brother, Robert Smith; two sons-in-law, William Mills and Jimmy Lee.
Mrs. Hill loved to read, paint, draw, and fish. Before her health started to fail, she would get up every morning and greet the household pet Maxi, the turtle, and feed him every morning. The cat of over 20 years, “Black Cat,” was her protector and would guard her bed by lying beside her whenever someone would go into her room.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Home Life Care, Capps program, and Community Home Care and Hospice for the care that was provided in her time of need.
Mrs. Hill’s last request was for all her family and friends to “go to church, and become Christians so they too could go home to be with Jesus one day.”
Flowers are appreciated and can be sent to the home or memorial contributions may be made to Woodard’s Pond Church of Christ PO Box 1302 Washington, NC 27889.
