Connie Eilleen Hile

December 29, 1961 ‒ April 27, 2021

Lexington, Ohio

LEXINGTON:  To make a profound impact on others does not require brilliance or riches or perfection – it simply requires a caring heart and a loving spirit.  That combination and a desire to love on others, and care for others elevates more than any treasure or aptitude ever can. Connie Hile loved and cared for those around her.

Connie passed away Tuesday afternoon April 27, 2021 in Avita Galion Hospital. She was 59.

Born December 29, 1961 in Mount Gilead to parents Walters S. Hile, Jr and Phyllis Eileen (Dudley) Hile, she was graduated from Lexington High School in 1981. She had worked at the former Hardee’s Restaurant in Lexington before accepting a position with the local Wendy’s Restaurants. She was with Wendy’s 18 years, serving as assistant manager. She also worked in childcare.

The Lenox China collectable Moose Christmas series caught her eye one year, and Connie had a passion.  She started collecting the annual series, along with other moose figurines and characters, and had also collected over 200 sets of cups and saucers.

Connie enjoyed sewing projects and other crafts such as counted cross-stitch and macramé, and had served as a consultant to Rolling Hills 4H Club.

She is survived by her family, her brother and sister-in-law  Melvin and Rita Hile of Troy, Missouri; sisters and brothers-in-law Lora and Shane Hamilton and Peggy and Kristopher Wolf all of Lexington; nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved and cared for Samuel and his wife Leigh Hile (and their daughter Lauren), Rebecca and her husband David Colopy, Nicholas Hile, Hannah Hamilton, Jacob Hamilton, Cadie Hamilton, Kage Hamilton, Ezekiel “Zeke” Wolf, Jonah Wolf, and Lydia Wolf, along with aunts, uncles, a large extended family, and a circle of friends.

Her parents preceded her in death.

The Hile family will receive guests Sunday, May 2, 2021 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. Her graveside funeral service will be held Monday, May 3, 2021 at 11 a.m. in Shauck Cemetery near Johnsville. Pastor Dave Smith will officiate.

  • It is especially hard when we loose someone who is so young. Although we did not see each other much, it was nice to be able to pick up like it was only last week that we were together.

    I believe that she is now reunited with her mom and dad, David, and all of our family that has gone before us. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD. Although our hearts are broken, we can rest in that promise and know that one day we will be reunited her.

  • We went to school with Connie. Considered her our friend. She was kind. She will be missed.

  • Mel, Lora, Peggy and family,
    Connie was such an important part of our lives for many years. She was our loving, wonderful caregiver to our two girls; treating them like they were one of her own. Every day she arrived with a smile and open arms. She will forever remain in our hearts.

  • We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Connie. From the time I was 6 weeks old, Connie became a part of our family. She was a caregiver for me and my sister, Kara, instilling her morals, sharing her family, and teaching us cross stitch and other crafts – the memories can on and on!

    We are thinking of you all during this difficult time.
