Gloria A. Hill, 87, Plymouth, formerly Bourbon, passed away July 7, 2021 at Miller’s Merry Manor Nursing Home in Plymouth.
Gloria was born the daughter of Raymond and Reatha (Huffman) Lemler Jan. 5, 1934, in Marshall County. She was a lifetime resident of the area. She did spend a few years living in Florida and always talked about her dream of moving back there as it was her favorite state. She previously attended the Bourbon United Pentecostal Church, and although she had worked for Crystal Lake Egg Products and K-Mart in Warsaw, she completed her career by retiring from United Technologies. She was a 1953 graduate of Tippecanoe High School and was a member of Order of Eastern Star in Warsaw.
She married Edward Hill Jan. 27, 1962, and he preceded her in death in November of 1991.
Gloria loved to knit, crochet, quilt, play cards, was a cat lover of “Buddah” and “Princess”, a big Cubs fan, and enjoyed her Budweiser beer. She was a “perfectionist with all she did,” and her family was a very important part of her life.
She will be missed by her children: Kim Hill of Etna Green; Roger (Sherri) Hill of Warsaw; her nine grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; her brother DeWayne (Barb) Lemler of Paris, Ill.; and bonus daughter, Rhonda Elliott.
She is preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, George Lemler.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 31, in Grace Fellowship Church.
Deaton-Clemens Funeral Home is privileged to be entrusted in assisting the family with arrangements
