Mrs. Loretta Hill, age 94, of New Smyrna Beach passed away on August 2, 2016 at her residence under the generous care of Halifax Health Hospice and after an extended illness. Formerly a resident of Charleston, WV, she and her late husband, Roy C. Hill, relocated to New Smyrna Beach in 1981 enjoying many years of retirement. Prior to retiring, she was employed by St. Francis Hospital, Charleston, WV as a supervisory surgical nurse.

Roy preceded her in death in 1994. They were married for 47 years. Both were active members of the New Smyrna Beach Presbyterian Church. Loretta was also involved with Sight Seekers for many years.

Loretta will be remembered as a loyal and trusted friend and for her insatiable determination to overcome obstacles. Nearly blind for more than twenty years, she never complained of her limitations but remained active and contributed not only to her church but also to many others in the community.

She was preceded in death by her parents George H. and Grace Garrett Skeen, sisters Lorraine Rawling and Helen Hill. Survivors include her niece, Lorra (Todd) Ensign, nephews Dr. P. Mark (Rebecca) Hill and Mr. John (Pepper) Hill, all of Indiana.

Services will be held Saturday, August 13th, 2016 at 1:00pm at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens Mausoleum. Tyler Mountain Funeral Home 5233 Rocky Fork Rd., Cross Lanes, WV 25313 is assisting the Hill family.

In lieu of flowers Loretta requested that any memorial donations be made to: First Presbyterian Church, 509 Magnolia St, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168, or Shriners Burns Hospital, 3229 Burnet Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45229.
