Nancy Ann Hill
Hooper Bay resident Nancy Ann
Hill, 28, died April 23, 1999, at her home.
Funeral services will be at 2 p.m.
Saturday in Hooper Bay.
Ms. Hill was born in Anchorage on
Nov. 3, 1970, the first of twin daughters to Reuben and Kathryn Hill. She
graduated a valedictorian of her senior class in May 1989 and worked as a clerk
in the Hill & Joe's store and the Traditional Council.
Her family said, "Nancy passed on
to our heavenly Father. She was a sweet and thoughtful mother, daughter, sister,
aunt, niece and friend. She was a volunteer for many things out of the kindness
of her heart. Nancy enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the subsistence life
style that she grew up in. She relied upon the spirit of the tundra and will be
remembered as a speedy left-handed berry picker. She enjoyed sports and
academics and enjoyed playing basketball with her classmates all her life. She
even nicknamed her friends in pure Eskimo humor. She will be greatly missed by
everyone that she knew and remembered as a kindred spirit."
Ms. Hill is survived by her four
children, Samantha Simon, Paula Hill, Arnoldine Hill and Jon Hill; parents,
Reuben and Kathryn Hill Sr.; brothers, Ike, Harvey, Reuben Jr., Frank and Freddy
Hill; sisters, Nora Smart, Leota Lake, Ramona Hill, Sandra Hill and Marlene
Olson all of Hooper Bay, and Viola Grozier of Anchorage; and numerous nephews,
nieces, uncles and aunts.
Arrangements were entrusted to
Witzleben Family Funeral Homes & Crematory.
