Corine Hill, age 80 of Copperas Cove, transitioned to Heaven in her sleep during the afternoon on February 5, 2023, at her home. Visitation with the family will be 10 am - 12 pm, on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at Viss Family Funeral Home in Copperas Cove.
Corine Goodwin Hill, also known as “Bay,” was born on April 14, 1942, in Ellerslie, Georgia; she was the 8th of 11 children born to Lonnie and Bessie Howard Goodwin.
In 1965, she met her future husband, Milton Hill, at church. Their union resulted in four children Blender Hill, Stan Hill (Linda), Ann Hill-May, and Kenny Hill (Kimberly); one granddaughter Jasmine May and a great-grandson Ezekiel “Zeke” Sanders. Milton and Corine were married 30 years before his death in 1993.
Corine was known for her green thumb; she could take a single leaf from a plant and grow an entire tree. She lived her life to the fullest and enjoyed spending time with her family.
For the past two years, one of her biggest joys in life was to get down on the floor and play cars with her 4-year-old great-grandson Zeke, who would ask “are you too heavy?” as she used her hands to push up off of the floor.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lonnie and Bessie Goodwin; her husband Milton; brothers Ozie, Lonnie Jr., Bennie, and Henry; sisters Sallie, Alma, and Clora.
Her siblings, Nellie Senior and Jefferson Goodwin, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins survive her.
The family asks you for your prayers and support as we celebrate her. We will continue to mourn her presence until we see her again.
“We are confident, I say, and willing rather be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV.
