STANTON - Carla Hill, 62, died on Sept. 13, 2019, at her home in Stanton. She was born Carla Deene Holleman on June 5, 1957, in Midland. She was raised in Tucson, Arizona and NW Ohio with her two younger sisters. When she was young, she loved riding horses, artwork and singing. She won several awards in local and state choirs and sang beautiful solos in church. Carla graduated high school a year early and married William Hill of Waterville, Ohio. They had two children, Joshua and Aimie.

She was always a very hard worker, whether landscaping in the Arizona sun or managing large apartment complexes, and she raised her children with laughter and love. Her son Joshua died at the age of 19. She and her daughter moved back to Texas in 1993.

She was passionate about classic country music and “old things.” Included in the “old things” were quilts, antiques, and seniors. At 17, her wedding matron of honor was her 72 year old neighbor! She worked as a CNA and turned her home into a sanctuary for bedbound seniors. How she loved to play piano and sing from the Baptist Hymnal for them!

She moved to Stanton in 2003 to be near her partner, Neal. She loved Stanton, its people and her church. Her father moved in and she took care of him in his last years. She was a beloved personal caregiver for many Stanton natives. At heart, she was a small town country girl who loved to take care of others.

She is survived by many loving family members: longtime partner Neal Sisson; daughter Aimie Hill; grandchildren Koby Stratton, Braiden Murphy, Tylie Murphy and Justin Hill; sisters Penny (Gregg) Weimer and Tamee (Bruce) Frazier; brother Bill Holleman III; nephews Riley Weimer, Mason Frazier and Nick Frazier; and her honorary son James Barber. She also leaves behind many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her son Joshua Hill; parents William G. Holleman, Jr. and Nancy Bell Winkler and grandparents, N.J. and JoNell Bell.
