Annie Hess Hill

Annie Hess Hill of Hotchkiss passed away on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at the Willow Tree Care Center in Delta. She was 64.

Annie was born to Ted and Margaret Jane (Newman) Parke on June 13, 1946 in Washington D.C. She spent her childhood in Washington D.C. and Rhode Island. Annie graduated from Bladensburg High School in 1964. She moved to Aspen to find work and made it her home for over 20 years. Annie then moved to Hotchkiss where she resided until her passing.

On April 8, 1994, Annie married Gerald Emmett “Chico” Hill in Glenwood Springs. The couple had the honor of sharing 20 years of love and 16 years of marriage together.

Annie was employed for Gene Taylors in Snowmass Village as a skiwear buyer.

She also worked for MCI when it was a small business operation.

Annie was loved by everyone she had the privilege to meet. She truly sparkled the room she entered. Her interest included skiing, bike riding and working out in a gym when she had the opportunity.

Annie was preceded in death by her parents.

Annie is survived by her husband, Chico Hill of Hotchkiss; step-son Jesse Hill of Carbondale; sister, Marylou (Bob) Bradley Bob of Kauai, Hawaii; and one nephew, Joseph Bond.

A potluck for family and friends to honor Annie’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, 2010 at the Hill Residence, 15058 2900 Road, Hotchkiss, Colo.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made in Annie’s memory to the Black Canyon Animal Sanctuary in Crawford, Colo.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory.
