Ivy Laurel Hill
Birth: Feb., 1955
New South Wales, Australia
Death: 1963
New South Wales, Australia

Update February 20, 2015: A big THANK YOU to relative Mollie for coming across personal letters which suggest a mid February 1955 birthday for Ivy...also for the verification she was born New South Wales. We are now seeking further info...and yes, I just discovered another link to Rhondda, but no, l am not named for our ties there ~ I am named after the actress Rhonda Fleming. =)

Although this will have to be one of my shortest memorial pages because I have almost no information which can be verified/proven at this time, the story of Ivy Hill has been in our family history for many years, and whenever this photo would be pointed out, we would hear "That's Ivy Hill, she died young."

Obviously the first thing one might note before even considering biographical information is Ivy's appearance; again, as it is the only photo that I have ever seen of her, I do not know what her full medical condition and diagnosis was. I have shown the photo to many of my son's neurologists as well as our genetics team, and when I state that the family always just said that (like just about everybody in this family seems to do) Ivy suffered from a serious seizure disorder, I am usually greeted with a look of blankness and a shaking of the head.

When I finally verified that Ivy was buried in Australia, or at least died there, I thought that it would be simple to find her information with such an uncommon name. Again, I was in for a bit of surprise, finding the name actually common...I have traced as many of the other Ivy Hills as possible, and none of them fit what sparse information I have, and so I am putting a page up now, with the request that tender mercies be extended while I continue to track this file. I would rather have a 'short' page than incorrect, and I will update this as I can do so.

Lastly, and this is an uncommon request - should anybody work in the medical field and have any thoughts about Ivy and her unusual appearance, please feel free to contact me with your thoughts. We have many, many individuals in our various lines who are no more than a photo - if they're lucky -, and maybe a name, and I would like to pay respects to them. It is a different world now, and disabilities are not shuttered away as they were even as little as forty years ago.
