Rita M. Hill, age 86, of Frederick, MD died Friday, September 2, 2016, at the Kline Hospice House in Mt. Airy, MD. She was born on July 24, 1930, in Rockville, MD. She was the daughter of the late Henry O. and Marguerite Dodson. She is survived by two of her brothers, John R. Dodson and Paul A. Dodson, and by her children, Valerie L. Hill, Theodore A. Hill, Lorretta F. Foster, Sherman R. Hill, Jenelle L. Arrington, Paul C. Hill, Matthew D. Hill, and Elizabeth L. Roderick, as well as 15 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Thomas A. Coyle and her second husband Sherman E. Hill, and by her brothers Harold L. Dodson, Gerald G. Dodson, and Carroll F. Dodson. Rita attended Gaithersburg High School and graduated from Roberts Wesleyan Junior College in North Chili, NY. She graduated from Abbie Business Institute at age 52 and worked for Calculon, a contractor with the Department of Energy, until she retired. After retirement, she worked at Wal-Mart until 2007. She was a life-long Christian of great faith who worshipped for many years at the Evangelical Wesleyan Church in Keymar, MD, and later with the Faithful Servants Fellowship at the Catoctin View Apartments. Rita was lively, witty, intelligent, and warm-hearted, never failing to regard everyone she met as a friend. She was also thrifty, as was all that generation that grew up in the Great Depression, except where Christmas presents were concerned. Everyone she knew got a Christmas present. She was constantly industrious and a fabulous cook and baker who loved to entertain. Rita has always been liked and valued by her colleagues and dearly loved by her family and many friends. The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick.
