Mrs. Hazel E. Young Hill, 85, of Waterloo, passed away Tuesday, May 18, at Hardin Medical Center in Savannah, after an extended illness.

She was a native and life-long resident of Lauderdale County and a dedicated member of the Apostolic Lighthouse Church in Waterloo, Ala.

Mrs. Hill worked many years as a skilled upholsterer in family-owned furniture manufacturing businesses. Mamaw Hill enjoyed singing songs on her front porch alone or with anyone who cared to join in. She loved to read her Bible daily and write in her journal. She had a passion for cooking and gardening with the best beans and cornbread around. Everyone felt welcomed and at home with Mamaw Hill. Above all else, she loved the Lord and was "Mama" to many.

Mrs. Hill was preceded in death by her husband, J.L. Hill, parents, Owen B. and Rosie Mann Young, five sons, J.E. "Junior", Bobby, Dan, Dale, and Gary Hill and a grandson, Ricky Wayne Hill.
