She was a native of Bradley County and lived most of her life in the historic district of Cleveland on Ocoee Street. She was born to Mr. & Mrs. Urb Bacon Ollie Hill of Bradley County as their only child, on November 11, 1925.
She was predeceased by her husband of 35 years and her proud parents, as well as a special pet, Miss Kitty, whom she loved very much.
