Dorothy E. Hill

Dorothy E. Hill, nee Crouch, 84, of Waterloo, IL, died September 6, 2022 in Belleville, IL.  She was born June 9, 1938 in Hazel Park, MI.

    She is survived by her sister Gloria Coffelt (nee Crouch), brothers William (Gail) and Terry (Deborah) Crouch, children Dana (Kim) Hill, Randy (Cynthia) Hill, and Robin (Chris) Prombo; grandchildren Miranda Hill, Jay (Katie) Prombo, and Scott Prombo; great grandchildren Austin Hill, Alivia Hill, and Ian Prombo.

    Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband Ralph Owen Hill Jr.; parents Ewin and Edith (nee Pardy) Crouch; and sister Marilyn (nee Crouch) LaFave.

    Beyond her life as an exceptional mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Dorothy gave back to the community through various volunteer efforts and donations.  She also had many other passions:
    She was an exquisite gardener, her yard was always in bloom and the envy of the neighborhood.
    She and her husband were accomplished Country Western dancers and instructors at the Silver Moon Dance Hall.
    She was an avid Cardinals fan... she passed calmly while watching the team she loved win the game.

Dorothy will be laid to rest beside Ralph, her beloved husband of 63 years, at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
American Cancer Society

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Dottie was a bright spot in our days when she came to visit Ralph at Oak Hill. They were one of the sweetest couples I have ever known.

Our deepest sympathy we send to you Dana ,Randy ,and Robin. The years the guys worked with her at the feed mill, the laughs we all shared when your Ralph would come around! Oh they were a pair those two. She was quite a special lady and we have many good memories of them both. Sorry for your loss. Wayne ,Pam ,Duane Liefer
