We, the children regret to announce the peaceful passing of our loving mother, Eileen Matilda Hill, age 87, on Friday, March 1, 2019, at Harbourstone, Sydney.
Born, raised and lived in Louisbourg, Eileen was the daughter of the late William and Lillian (Tanner) MacGillivary. Not only was she the youngest of her siblings, Eileen was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Eileen is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Ashley Hill and five loving children, Sis, Bev, Lizz, Ash and DD. Nanny will be missed by many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Eileen was predeceased by her siblings, Louis, George, Bill, Mary, Ann and Beaulah.
Eileen, a stay at home mom, loved making and listening to music. She was a woman of faith and a strong member of her church. A call from mom and chats at the kitchen table will be missed.

Our sincere condolences to you and family. I remember your mom singing to and with us on the lawn swing when we were sooo young! She was one of the kindest moms anyone could wish for.
God be with you to guide you on your path of bereavement she will be missed.
