Thelma I. (Pamer)(Bell) Hill, 88, died Wednesday, August 30, 2023. Thelma
was born on November 10,1934, in Copley Ohio. Daughter of Peter and
Cora (Love) Pamer. Thelma graduated from Copley High School in 1952 as
an active member in her class. Thelma was preceded in death by her
beloved husband of 23 years William Hill and first husband Douglas Bell,
father of their 3 children. Surviving are her children, Sharon (John)
Vandenbroucke, Shirley (Norm) Klein, Shawn Bell, 7 grandchildren, 9 great
grandchildren: and her brother, Arthur Pamer.
Thelma retired from Ford Motor Company after many years of working in
different departments. For the past 45 years she’s been an active member of
Ward Church in Livonia. She loved her church, the fellowship with friends
and the opportunities to serve there.
Thelma had many talents as a gardener, pie baker, and seamstress; making
many matching Mother Daughter dresses for herself and daughters. She also
enjoyed making ceramics and designing painted sweatshirts for craft shows.
Her super talent was writing poems; expressing creative, rhyming thoughts
of those she wrote for. Thelma’s greatest joy and love was spending time with
her family, especially her grandchildren; taking them to vacation bible school,
on mission trips, to museums and the zoo. She was the “button” that securely
held our family together with unconditional love.
After meeting William (Bill) at church they married in 1985.
Together they enjoyed playing golf, singing in the Livonia Civic Choir
and dancing. Once fully retired Thelma and Bill vacationed in the USA
and traveled to Europe on mission trips. We are truly grateful for the
life examples Thelma has given us. We will remember her vibrant
smile and her faith filled spirit.
