Lucille E. Hill
78, of New Windsor, New York, passed peacefully into Eternity on April 12, 2013 at St. Luke's Hospital in Newburgh, New York, after a long illness. Lucille was born on February 25, 1935 in Harris, NY to the late Louis A. Scarvalone and Sophia DiMotta.
Survivors include her two sons, Robert L. Hill and Dr. James A. Hill, both of London, England; adored grandchildren, Alex and Sophia Hill of New York City; siblings, Dr. Edward J. Scarvalone of Poughkeepsie and Jeanna H. Scruggs of New Windsor; and nephews/nieces, Darren Fogarty, Patsy Divver, Mary, Carol, Susan, Patrice, Polly, Edward, Jr., and Maria Scarvalone, as well as Rick Lindsay, Chris Hill, and William and Barbara Scruggs, of Indianapolis.
Lucille was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Robert N. Hill, and two brothers, Joseph L. Scarvalone and Albert R. Scarvalone.
Lucy began her Liberty High School years with an interest in music and cheerleading, performing at football games and playing the bass drum with the marching band. Her secretarial courses lead her to a career as a paralegal, where she worked in offices from Monticello, NY to Indianapolis, where she worked for the firm of Katzman, Katzman, and Pylitt, and finally to New Windsor, NY, where she retired to be near her sister.
Lucille had many hobbies and interests. She very much enjoyed travelling, and spent many weeks during the summer travelling our nation with her family. She also loved to work with ceramics, and created many items for the holiday times for her family. Her love and passion for cooking, music and reading were legendary. Lucille and her husband, Robert were long time members of the New Windsor, NY volunteer corps, instilling in their children the need to help and care for others.
The time Lucille spent in Indianapolis (1984-2000) was some of her most special time. There, she watched her son James graduate from DePauw University, and Robert graduate from Purdue. She developed a unique and special bond with her brother and sister-in-law, Harry and Joan Hill, and their children. She also shared a warm and close friendship with a like minded and equally mischievous group, loosely called "the Friday night group".
Lucille was a friendly, warm, insightful lady with a great sense of humor. She enjoyed spending time with her friends, and enjoyed her days at the beauty salon. Anyone who knew Lucille found her to be a true friend and a good listener. Her warmth and laughter will be missed by all who knew her.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, April 24, 2013 from 12:00 p.m. until time of her memorial service at 2:00 p.m. at Shirley Brothers Fishers-Castleton Chapel , 9900 Allisonville Rd.
