Gloria Dean Dye Hill

April 13, 1946 ~ August 26, 2021 (age 75)


How beautiful are the feet of those who carry the gospel (Romans 10:15)

What a beautiful life to honor for someone who spent the greatest portion of their life serving and helping others.  Gloria led with a true servant’s heart, always giving of herself and sharing God’s word in subtle ways throughout her years of serving. She served her family, her church and community with a compassionate heart and a willing spirit. God blessed her with the gift of “help”, the gift of “organizing” and the gift of “establishing order” which is one of the many reasons why she was able to always assist others with ease. Never for compliments or for praise, but simply because it was her passion and one of the many ways she honored her Heavenly Father. The lifestyle that she chose to live inspired others to seek God’s word and His goodness for themselves.

Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.  Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. (Proverbs 31:30)

A graceful woman, beautifully crafted by God. Radiant and poised, with a warm spirit that matched her outward appearance. A woman of great integrity, kind-hearted, hard-working, resilient, wise, a fearless warrior and a true reflection of God’s love.

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8)

But her crowning glory will always be the adoration that Gloria had for her family. She loved and was loved deeply. Her family filled a special place in her heart and she never missed an opportunity to convey the depths of her love to her family and close friends. Being connected and showing one another love is what brought her joy. Her heart was so big and she had the capacity to love everyone uniquely and to foster and maintain long-lasting relationships.

A full life lived… A life spent on things that brought her true fulfillment and happiness. May she be remembered by the lives that she played a part in. May she be unforgettable and always cherished in our hearts.

Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. (Psalm 116:7)

Servant, you may take your sweet rest.  Your citizenship is now in heaven. You are in God’s keeping where you can worship at his feet and dwell in His holy presence for all eternity. May angels usher you into the Kingdom of Heaven where suffering is no more. May joy bells ring for another one of God’s children has made it to their heavenly home. Your work here on earth is completed…Well done, thy good and faithful servant.

Well done, Gloria. Well done.
