Carrie Isabel France Hill

July 17, 1924 - February 9, 2024

On the morning of February 9th 2024, God peacefully and quietly called Sister Carrie Hill to her heavenly home. Sister Carrie was born on July 17, 1924 in Mount Airy, North Carolina to the late Joseph and Ida France. She attended school in Mount Airy and Patrick County, Virginia. She was united in holy matrimony to the late George W. Hill, Jr. To this union seven children were born (Gary, Larry, Carolyn, Roger, Janet, Shelby and Regenia). In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters and eight brothers.

Sister Carrie joined Hylton Thessalonia Primitive Baptist Church in 1975 and was a mother of the church. She loved her church and church family, she was a faithful member and rarely missed a Sunday service until recent years due to failing health. She was a wonderful wife and mother. She never met a stranger and always welcomed anyone who happened to show up at dinner time. She also served as an unofficial “grandma” to a number of children in the community that she cared for while their parents worked.

Sister Carrie was also a lover of cats and dogs. In her lifetime, she cared for many pets including Sam, Tiger, Bruno and King. They all preceded her in death and was waiting for her on the rainbow bridge as she crossed over.

Mom’s favorite color was pink and favorite flower was tulips. She had an affinity for sweets and loved pancakes for breakfast. Spending time outside, she found joy in tending to her flowers and maintaining her yard. Even as she aged, she insisted on mowing her own lawn; she liked walking behind her self-propelled mower for exercise.

She leaves to cherish her memory and mourn her loss three sons, Gary Hill (Elaine), Stuart, VA; Larry Hill, Birmingham, AL; Roger Hill (Rita), Durham, NC; four daughters, Carolyn Anderson (Dale), Wilmington, DE; Janet Ebron, Williamsburg, VA; Shelby Hill-McCray (Henry), Durham, NC; Regenia Hill, Richmond, VA; Daughter-in-law, Bettie Hill, Stuart, VA; Sons-in-law, Jerry Ebron, Bowie, MD and Stanley Jones, Fredericksburg, VA; Sisters-in-law, Shirley Redd, Martinsville, VA; Betty Gaither, Stuart, VA; Juanita Hairston, Stuart, VA; one uncle, Randall Straughter France, Westfield, NC; one aunt, Nannie Sanders, Cleveland, OH; eighteen grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Burial will follow in the Hylton Thessalonian Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
