Biography

Annie Hill
Annie Lou “Ann” Hill died peacefully in her home January 26 with her husband by her side.
Ann was born to the late Norman and Minnie Jordan on a farm near Florence, S.C. and attended school there. She grew up in the great depression working on the farm and in various retail establishments in the area. She was the youngest of nine children; now all decreased. Ann married Stout “Jack” Hill in November 1942 and moved to Philadelphia, PA. When her husband was drafted in 1943 to serve in the U.S. Army Air Corps, she moved back to South Carolina to stay with her family and worked at the U.S. Navy Yard in Charleston, S.C.
After her husband returned from the war, Ann and Jack moved back to Philadelphia and bought a home in Upper Darby, PA. While in Philadelphia she worked for the Wanamaker’s Department Store, where she met her lifelong friend Eleanor Crumback. She became a homemaker when her first child was born.
In September of 1963, Ann and Jack moved the family to Bowie. There, Ann enjoyed being with her family along with her hobbies of making ceramics, doing crossword puzzles, knitting, cooking, and playing electronics games. She was a member of the Ceramic Club, Bowie Senior Center, Garden Club and the Eastern Star. When her youngest child entered school, she started working for the PG County Board of Education until her retirement in the late 1970’s. After her children grew up and left home, Ann enjoyed traveling with friends. She visited such places as Mexico, Europe, and the Caribbean.
Besides her parents, Ann is preceded in death by two grandchildren, Jimmy Hill and Janie Means.
