Nancy Lou Hill

Nancy Lou Hill, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, left this world on October 20, 2023, in Vicksburg, MI, at the age of 77. She was born on April 9, 1946, in Kalamazoo, MI, to the loving embrace of Harry and Gertrude (Lesman) Boodt.

Nancy was a devoted wife, and her love story with her husband, Carl Hill, was one for the ages. They were united in marriage on January 15, 1966, and their deep connection was an inspiration to all who knew them. Nancy was also preceded in passing by her son, Carl (Cathy) Hill II, her parents, and her siblings, Charlotte Robinson, Sharon Barringer, and Ken Boodt.

She is survived by her children, Keith Hill, Amanda (Dean) Gouin, Richard (Margo) Hill, and T.J. Hill. Her legacy lives on through her 5 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Nancy is also survived by her siblings, Connie Frisch, Ronnie (Sue) Boodt, Linda Boodt, and Kathy Markword, as well as numerous nieces and nephews who cherished their Aunt Nancy.

Nancy had many passions in life that brought joy to her and those around her. She was an exceptional baker, renowned for her homemade rolls, cookies, banana bread, and holiday treats. Every Christmas, she delighted her family by gifting them bags filled with their favorite desserts, sparking friendly fights over her delectable creations. Nancy's dedication to baking knew no bounds, as she spent a whole month preparing for the holidays, crafting homemade candy and peanut brittle, and creating beautiful cakes for family weddings and graduation parties.

Crafting was another cherished pastime she shared with her husband, forming lasting memories while working on creative projects together. Her love for reruns of 70s game shows, especially "The Password," added laughter and enjoyment to their lives.

Nancy had a special place in her heart for music, attending concerts with a radiant smile. Her favorite artist, Carrie Underwood, struck a chord deep within her soul, and she often expressed how the music resonated with her in a profound way.

Above all, Nancy's love for her family was immeasurable. She dedicated herself to creating a warm and loving home, and her unwavering support and kindness touched the hearts of everyone she knew. Nancy's legacy will live on through the love she shared, the memories she created, and the indelible mark she left on the lives of those fortunate enough to have known her.
