Ginger was born in Jefferson County on Aug. 1, 1931, to her late parents, Lois and Levertt Sellers. Virginia was the middle child and the only girl of three children. She was a graduate of Corner High School.
Ginger met her sweetheart, Harlon, at Florence State University, where she received her Master's degree.
She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandson, and
was affectionately called "Ginger." She was a loving daughter, sister, wife,
mother and "Ginger." She had many hobbies; some of these were traveling with
family and friends, gardening, cooking, collecting pretty china, shopping, and
she loved purses of all kinds, but her greatest love was spending time with her
family. She always looked forward to family gatherings every Sunday. She was a
retired educator from the Lauderdale County School System after 28 years. During
her teaching career, she taught at Lauderdale County High School, Bradshaw,
Brooks and Lexington. Virginia was a devoted Christian and a longtime, faithful
member of Killen Church of Christ who enjoyed reading her Bible. Virginia was a
very happy person and had a beautiful smile on her face every time you saw her.
She was known for her great sense of humor.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Billy Sellers and Dave
Sellers; and nephew, Brett Sellers.
She leaves her loving husband of 55 years, Harlon J. Hill, Killen; daughters,
Gwen Springer (Dallas), Killen, Jackie Smith, Killen, Janet Phillips, Killen,
Teresa Robertson (Danny), Killen; son, Jerry Hill (Beth), Killen; grandchildren,
