Obituary for Kathleen M. Hill

Kathleen M. Hill, a lifelong resident of the Milford area, died on July 7, 2011 in the care of her family and Medilodge of Milford. She was 84 years old. Born at the family home on Hickory Ridge Road on February 5, 1927, she was the daughter of William and Anna (Lueder) Charlick. When she was 16 years old she married Elmer Hill and six months later the newlyweds moved into the home they built on West Commerce Road in Milford Township. Elmer planted trees, served on the building committee for West Highland Baptist Church, and worked a variety of jobs including time at Ford's, the Gamble Store, Vagabond Coach, masonry and carpentry work, eighteen years at Numatics in Highland; Kathleen gardened, quilted, canned fruit and kept house while together they raised their four sons, their marriage lasting until Elmer�s death in 1977. In the 1980�s and early 90�s she worked as a teller at Michigan National Bank on Milford Road at Lone Tree and worked Red Cross blood drives and township elections for many years. A woman of deep and abiding faith, Kathleen Hill was a life-long member of West Highland Baptist Church where she taught Sunday school for over 50 years. Her trust in God saw her through all of life�s sorrows and joys and emboldened the faith of her large family and circle of friends.
