  • Granny you meant the world to me. Always there and the most selfless person I know. No words can describe the loss this family has endured. The days at Irmac and the walks in the cemetery and down shoreline drive will forever be embedded in my mind as some of my most treasured memories. I know you’re in heaven with dad making sure he’s getting to the drive thru because his license is invalid in the next life. I know there isn’t a person in the world whose got a better gaurdian angel than I do. You will be missed terribly and no words will describe how much you will be missed. I’m not sure how I’m gonna handle not playing hey hey it’s the first of May.
    Love you so much Granny

  • Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Hill family at this time. Mrs. Hill was a remarkable woman always had a smile on her face. Her unconditional love for her children was exquisite. We will miss seeing her scooting around in her baby blue Volkswagon ” Bug”. She was truly a woman of Integrity, poise and grace.

  • Dear Cousins,
    I was thinking of Ann and Jim last week thinking I should contact them to see how they were doing. I was saddened to hear of Ann’s death from another cousin. Ann was always one of my favorites even though we have not seen each other for many years. We shared a special love for our Aunt Margaret who always kept me informed about Ann and Jim when she was alive. Ann was indeed a very loving, happy lady with an infectious smile. Everyone who knew her will miss all the love she poured out. We grieve because we care, but we treasure what they leave behind and we know there is a life ahead. I send my condolences to you all with love from your extended family.
    Mary James Hooper (Jerry)
    Daughter of Elizabeth Sidle James, first cousin

  • Prayers for the family ! Ann was such a happy, kind lady she will be missed by many! I know we will miss her ! Hugs to you all!

  • Granny,
    You gave my siblings and I THE best childhood. From weekend adventures at Irmac to watermelon seed spitting contests at the cottage. Daily walks bribed with jolly ranchers. Thanksgiving and Christmas will never be the same again. I can still remember how she said whoo-hooo when we went to look for her. And her deep almost Santa “oh-hoho” laugh. Always was thoughtful of my father and the rest of us. Our loss is equal to the quality of life she enriched for us all. You will be sorely missed Granny, and will never be forgotten.

  • May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept our sincere condolences.

    Kathy, David & Sam Wink
