September 11, 1925 - March 5, 2019
Betty “Nanny” (Hannick) Hill, age 93 and formerly of Dunmore, died Tuesday at Abington Manor, Clarks Summit. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 55 years, Willard G. Hill, Sr., on March 11, 2001.
Born in Scranton on September 11, 1925, Betty was the daughter of the late Clare Galbo and William Hannick. After working for Laurel Hill Nursing Home, she began working as a personal caregiver which she did until her retirement.
From “Betty Boop” to “Blonde Bombshell” to “Nanny”, everyone had their own loving nickname for Betty. She was the absolute life of the party, and always one to speak her mind, everyone seemed to know exactly where they stood with her. A shopping fanatic, Boscovs just lost one of its best patrons. She was kind, loving and generous, and her heart melted for her grandchildren. Passing away peacefully on Tuesday, she will be forever missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by four adoring children, Willard Hill, Jr., of Dunmore, Christine Bouton of Scranton, William Hill of Wilkes Barre and Betty Ann Novack and husband Charles of Scranton; eight grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; her sister, Margaret “Peggy” Zurinskas of Scranton; and many nieces and nephews.
Her granddaughter, Tammy Bouton; siblings, Robert, William, Roy, Richard, Robert and Ronald Hannick and Shirley Bowers; and her son-in-law, Alexander “Al” Bouton also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to offer its gratitude to the entire staffs of both Abington Manor and Hospice of the Sacred Heart for its collective care, compassion and kindness.
A blessing service by Rev. Joseph Sica is scheduled for Saturday at 9:30AM at the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Interment, Fairview Memorial Park in Elmhurst Twp. Relatives and friends may pay their respects on friday between 4-7:00PM at the funeral home.
