Obituary

Becky K. Hill, age 88, died on Monday, December 10, 2018. Becky was preceded in death by her husband, Gene, and is survived by her daughter, Anita Hill Spain and husband Brad Spain, sister Patricia Butler, brother Norman Kerns, and her granddaughters Sarah Spain, Laura Spain and her husband, Matthew Sherlock. Other family members are her nieces and nephews which include, Paulette Olsen, Jim Stone and Raymond Stone.


Becky was born in Altoona, PA to Norman and Rebecca Sigel Kerns as the oldest of three children. The family moved to Arlington where Becky spent her childhood and attended school. She married Gene E. Hill a Washington, D.C. firefighter, on June 28, 1952. After working a few years as a children’s librarian for the Arlington County Public Library, Becky stayed home to raise their only child, Anita. Based in part on her experience as a Girl Scout leader, Sunday school teacher, and participant in other volunteer programs in her community, she was hired in 1967 by the Fairfax County Public Schools as a teacher assistant in a newly created kindergarten program. Soon after starting her career, she also completed an associate degree from the Northern Virginia Community College.

Gene and Becky designed and built their home in Haymarket, Virginia during a two-year period before moving there from Falls Church. Gene died suddenly after only living there a few years. Becky continued in her kindergarten aide position, retiring after 23 years of continuous service. During retirement, she took care of the house and land with some assistance from her daughter and son-in-law for the next 34 years, tirelessly maintaining a neat and manicured yard. She enjoyed seeing her property bloom each spring, particularly the numerous azaleas planted by Gene which outline the home. She also enjoyed an active part in watching her granddaughters grow into adulthood and graduate from college to begin their own professional careers. Becky was an active member of the Sudley United Methodist Church near the Manassas Battlefield, teaching Sunday school and vacation Bible school and serving on many church committees for over two decades. She will be remembered as a caring and creative person by former students, friends, family and people she taught and served in her life

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, December 19th at Sudley United Methodist Church, Manassas, VA. The family will greet friends there prior to the service at 11:30. The service will start at 12:30.

Interment will immediately follow the service at Stonewall Memory Gardens, Manassas. The church will have a light lunch after the interment.

Memorials may be made in Becky’s name to Blue Ridge Hospice, 333 West Cork Street, #405, Winchester, VA 22601 or www.blueridgehospice.org.

Dear Anita, Brad, Sarah and Laura. I was blessed knowing your mom at Sudley UMC for many years and then when I was caring for her in her home. I so enjoyed the pictures you posted. It reminded me of the many times I would sit with Becky and we would look through the photo albums together. (It always calmed Becky down when she was feeling anxious.) I will miss her and pray that the memories you have will be a comfort to you. Thank you for giving me the honor of caring for your Mom and Grandmother.

One of my favorite traditions with my grandmother is that every year up to age sixteen she would take my sister and me to get balloons. The number of balloons we would get the number we were turning plus a Mylar balloon. We always found a way to do this no matter how busy we got. It was one of the things I look forward to the most for my birthday. After she stopped, my mom continued the tradition with getting me one large Mylar balloon for my birthday. I plan to keep this tradition with my future children. She is the one who made me love balloons.

Also, when my sister and I were in elementary school and we had early closings, she would sometimes take us to the mall to get a fruit smoothie, a pretzel or sometimes go to baskin robbins for ice cream. She would always get vanilla yogurt because it was healthy. It wasn't till the last 5-6 years that she started to treat herself with cookies and 3 musketeers. One year we gave her a whole box of 3 musketeers. We were so happy that my grandmother finally treated herself to something. She always put others before her and tried to always eat healthy because that is what you are supposed to do. It wasn't till she had Alzheimer's that she finally allowed herself this treat.

My grandmother also introduced my sister and me to Sudley United Methodist Church and we always had fun participating and helping with bible school. One of my saddest memories is that I always expected was for my grandmother to be at my wedding at the church. She couldn't come, Alzheimer's had taken over. I was looking forward to her arguing with my mother to make my wedding perfect.

She was my primary and last grandparent. Because of that I feel the greatest lost. She was always there which always comforted me. I didn't get to know my dad's parents, they lived far away and all of my memories of them were when they were sick. I will miss her.

When I think of her I always think of lavender, she loved that color so much. So whoever reads this and comes to her funeral please wear purple or lavender in her memory, my family will.

Anita, Sarah and Laura - the pictures here of Becky are lovely! I have such fond memories of Becky at Sudley Church - Sunday school, newsletter folding, and just talking with her and being together. You all are blessed to have had her as a mom and grandma. I pray that many happy memories will comfort you. I think of her and smile.
