September 12, 1949 ~ November 20, 2021 (72 years old)
STRUTHERS – Barbara Mae Hill, 72, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at Hospice House surrounded by her family.
Barbara was born September 12, 1949 in Gary, Indiana, daughter of John and Wanda (Davies) George.
She graduated from Emerson High School and attended Indiana University.
Barbara moved to the Youngstown area in 2000 and started working for Infocision in the Christian Room. She won several awards during her time there and was very proud of her work.
Barbara’s faith was a very important part of her life. She was a member of the Gospel Baptist Church, where she was a prayer warrior and worked in the nursery. Her life was dedicated to her family, especially her children. She loved to watch everything her children did and was proud of each one of them.
In her spare time, she enjoyed reading her Bible, receiving prayer requests, using her Facebook “ministry”, making coupons, and drinking her cup of coffee with extra cream. But more importantly, she loved to tell everyone about her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Barbara is survived by her husband, Rick Hill, whom she married on July 21, 1979; daughter, Wanda Kleine of Youngstown; sons, Joshua Hill of Boardman, Jacob Hill of Vienna and twins, Jeremiah Hill and wife Nicole, and Jedediah Hill Sr. and wife Alison, both of Struthers; 13 grandchildren, Jordan, Chelsea, Danielle “Dilly”, Jared, Abigail, Hannah, Noelle, Jacob, Aubrey, Natalee, Jedediah Jr. and Julius; and four great-grandchildren, Josiah, Ariana, Nakeith and Ja’Vier.
She was predeceased by her parents.
