Hill Jr., Anne Hill Hastings, Elaine Hill DeVennish, Howard A. Hill, Cortland S. Hill, and Deborah Hill McAlpin, died peacefully last Monday morning, November 26, 2018. Sylvia was a proud graduate of Columbus School for Girls in Columbus, Ohio. As a gifted athlete, she enjoyed sports her entire life, particularly tennis, golf and swimming. Sylvia competed in Ohio Masters Swimming until she was 89 setting national records. In 1942 Sylvia married Theodore D. Hill and moved to Berlin Heights, OH where they enjoyed many years farming, 61 years of marriage and retirement. Nothing gave Sylvia more enjoyment than having her family gather. A brief service will be held in the chapel at Parkview Place from 1:00 - 1:30PM, Saturday, December 1st with reception ending at 3:30 PM to follow. At a later date, her extended family will gather to celebrate her life as a true leader to her family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to Walking Path Fund, Parkvue Community, 3800, Boardwalk Blvd., Sandusky, OH 44870; a community in which she thrived during the last 12 months of her full and active life.

My sincerest condolences to you. So many memories of the family came back when I heard of Mrs. Hill's death.

So happy I was able to sit down and talk with her the last few years especially this last May. Her family will remember her for many things as I do, but my favorite memory is the smell of fresh baked homemade bread. And yes you will always be Mrs, Hill
