Hill, Jr.; daughter-in-law, Cathy Ruth Cox Hill, and a great granddaughter, Haylee Kayleen McKee.

Mrs. Hill was a well-known Mississippi artist. Her works were exhibited across the state, and she won numerous awards for her beautiful and creative water-colored roses. More recently her passion became abstract art in acrylics. She generously shared her artwork with family and friends.
