September 6, 1929-August 6, 2018
Shirley Marie (Parker) Hill passed away at her home into eternal heaven with her family by her side on August 6th, 2018 at the age of 88.
Born to Robert and Grace Parker on September 6th, 1929 at Saint Ann's Hospital in Anaconda, Montana, Shirley was loved beyond words by her parents and raised as an only child. She spent her youth growing up in Anaconda. After graduating from high school she married Erick Hill on November 1, 1947 at St. Anthony Church in Missoula. The couple was blessed with two sons, Bob and Craig.
Shirley took on her new role as a mother and homemaker. After the children were grown, she followed in her mother's footsteps as a nursing assistant, to provide care to the sick at St. James Hospital and private home care. In her spare time she loved to read, go on lunch dates with her favorite ladies; Marlene, Mary Clair and Edith, and dedicated Fridays as salon day with her stylist.
Shirley stated before her passing that she was blessed beyond measure by having special angels on this earth who cared for her in a time of need. Thank You Rob Hill, Marlene Miller, Cheri Bessonen, Shirley Rallis, Hospice Care; Chris and Shamia.
