To Charlie and Lynn and all of Hill's family,
My condolences on the loss of your Mom, Grandmother and Great-grandmother. I met Hill during my first 2 years of teaching at Dunnville Central School. She was a lovely lady and a great teacher. It is wonderful that she wrote those life books for you. What a gift that is to her family. Stay safe.

Charles and Lynne, Roydon and Esther, Elizabeth and Blair—- I have fond memories of my teaching days working with Hill on the Staff of Dunnville Central School. She was conscientious, dedicated, caring and knowledgeable. Children were so fortunate having her as an educator preparing their young lives for the secondary level of schooling.
