Obituary from The Independent Record:
Betty Hill, a resident of Helena from 1948 to 1995, died peacefully in Raleigh, N.C., on Feb. 10, 2004, at age 93 after a short illness. She had been a resident of the Sunnybrook Convalescent Center in Raleigh since a hip injury in January 2003.
Elizabeth Campbell Anderson was born in McKeesport, Pa., on March 21, 1910, and was the last surviving member of eight siblings who, with their widowed mother, Daizella Hampton-Anderson migrated from the Pittsburgh area to Miles City in 1911. Betty grew up in Miles City, attended Custer County Normal School, and taught country schools in Eastern Montana until she married Earl E. Hill, a highway engineer. Together, they raised three sons and lived in many Montana communities, following the highway construction projects. During WWII they lived briefly in Boise, Idaho, and Aberdeen, Wash., while Earl was working for the Civil Aeronautics Administration, building military airstrips.
After the family settled in Helena, she occasionally worked at the Montana State Legislature when it was in session and was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church on Ewing Street. After the passing of her husband in 1991, she remained in Helena until 1995, when she moved to Raleigh to be nearer her sons.
She is survived by three sons: Earl E. Hill, Jr. of Annandale, Va.; Raymond W. Hill of Bagdad, Fla.; and James D. Hill of Raleigh, N.C.; six grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl, and her siblings: Helen Anderson of Pittsburgh; Ruth Lindeberg-Negus of Miles City, Francis Baker of Helena, Eugene Anderson of Butte, Max Anderson of Missoula, John J. Anderson of Townsend, and her twin, William C. Anderson of Hamilton.
Her ashes will be interred beside her husband at Sunset Memorial Gardens in the Helena Valley at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, it is requested that contributions be made to the Intermountain Children's Home in Helena.
