Evelyn Hill Obituary


Evelyn Wilburn Hill, age 92, of Fairview, NC, passed away on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at Fleshers of Fairview.

She was born on June 11, 1930, to the late John Marion Wilburn and Kate Dotson Wilburn.

Evelyn attended Spring Mountain Baptist Church in Fairview and she worked as a private duty nurse and was retired. At one time, Evelyn and her father owned Finer Carolina Rugs.

 Evelyn wore many hats. She was a great cook and known for her delicious “Chow Chow”. She loved being a caregiver and she and her husband were foster parents to several area children over the years. Evelyn was very devoted to her family, and she loved them deeply. She enjoyed being a mother and grandmother and loved doing fun activities with the children. She was known to take them to swimming lessons, the skating rink, and off to Old Fort to listen to Blue Grass Mountain Music. She was also an avid reader and you could always find her curled up with a good book.

In addition to her parents, Evelyn is preceded in death by her husband, Charlie Alvoyd Hill; two daughters, Joyce Gibson and Carole Harvey; a brother, Gene Wilburn; and a sister, Ann Robinson.

Those left behind to cherish her memory are her son, Todd (Kim) Hill of Fairview; two daughters, Sandy (Winfred) Whitaker and Toni (David) Runion, both of Fairview; 12 grandchildren; and 18 great-grandchildren.

A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, July 27, 2022,  at 2:00 PM in the chapel of Penland Family Funeral Home,  125 South Ave., Swannanoa, NC 28778 conducted by Pastor Johnny Prettyman.
