Connie Eilleen Hile
December 29, 1961 ‒ April 27, 2021
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.
