Obituary for Marlin N. Hill

Marlin N.  Hill
After living a full life of 87 years, Marlin Newberry Hill, known to many people in the community as “Miss Marlin” passed away peacefully early on July 17, 2017.

Marlin was a graduate of East Crisp High School and while there her quick wit and competitive spirit on the basketball court drew the attention of her future husband of over 50 years, the late William J. "Billy" Hill, III. The next few decades brought moves around Georgia: East Point, Albany, Columbus, Morrow, and home to Cordele. Marlin's life was filled with caring for their five children and supporting their involvement in Boy Scouts, music, and Girls in Action.

She enjoyed being with young people very much, and after all of her own children were grown, she went to work at Crisp County High School, often traveling with the ball teams. The students appreciated her interest and caring and she became “Mama Hill” to practically the entire student body for many, many years. After retiring, she took great delight when former students, sometimes with their children, would see her around town and exclaim. "Mama Hill" followed by the requisite exchanging of hugs
and reminiscences.

Marlin was a faithful Baptist and participated fully in her various church homes, from caring for the infants in the nursery, working in the kitchen, to singing in the choir. She was a member of Pinecrest Baptist Church in Cordele for over the past 35 plus years, and with that congregation's caring and support, she attained an unprecedented 51 continuous years of Sunday School perfect attendance.

She is survived by her five children Jesse Hill (Betty) of Johns Creek, GA, Wayne Hill (Karen) of Cordele, GA, Jerry Hill of Cordele, GA, Jenny Hill Parker (Rob) of Stockbridge, GA, and Ann Hill Butts (Henry) of Cordele, GA. She is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

The family will receive visitors on Thursday, July 20th at 1:00 p.m., at Hughes and Wright Funeral Home. The funeral service will follow at 2:00 p.m., with Rev. Don Howell officiating. Interment will follow in the family plot at Sunnyside Cemetery.

Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Marlin to the Pinecrest Baptist Church, 1007 East 19th Avenue, Cordele, GA 31015.
