Baker City, Oregon
Maggie E. Hill, 82, a longtime Baker City resident, died Nov. 10, 2001, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.
Her graveside funeral was at 1 p.m. today at the Rosedale Memorial Park Cemetery at Payette, Idaho. Bishop Dick Hindman of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officiated.
Mrs. Hill was born on Sept. 17, 1919, at Moroni, Utah, to James R. and Mary E. Daniels Marx. She married Chester W. Hill at Weiser, Idaho, on Dec. 3, 1938. They lived at Weiser where she was a homemaker until moving to Baker City in the late 1960s.
Mrs. Hill loved being a homemaker for her husband and two children. She also enjoyed flower gardening and working with ceramics. She loved preparing large holiday dinners for the Marx and Hill sides of the family.
Her children have this to say about their parents: “Let it be said that daughter, Sharon K. Mackay, and son, James W. Hill, could not have had more loving, caring and supportive parents than Chester W. and Maggie E. Hill. May God bless both of them.”
Mrs. Hill was preceded in death by her parents, James and Mary Marx; and brothers, Marlin and Dwight Marx.
