Ella Maureen Hill-Carver, 80 years, of Apache Junction, Arizona, passed away June 23, 2018, in Apache Junction.
Mrs. Hill-Carver, a communications facilitator, was born in Prescott, Arizona, but raised in the Verde Valley.
Survivors are her five children: Bill (Debbie) Hill, Jerry (Brenda) Hill, Karen Tulin, Kathy (Britt) Batty, and Kevin (Jody) Hill; her siblings: Jeanne (Bob) Hardy, Kenneth (Helen) Brown, Floyd (Helen) Brown, and Laverne Basham.
She has six grandchildren, three great-grandchildren with two more on the way. There are many nieces, nephews and others who will miss her love of family and charity for them.
Mom was loving, caring, and forgiving. But she was also very competitive. No one had better kids, grandkids, brothers and sisters. She propped all of us up so high you had to do better.
We loved her and will miss her presence but not her love. Her love will always be a part of our lives and this world.
A small family service will be held 1 p.m., Friday, June 29, at Superstition Funeral Home, 398 E. Old West HWY, Apache Junction, Arizona, 85119.
