Frances Elizabeth (Rolando) Hill, age 65, of Lamar, Missouri passed away Friday, October 15, 2021, at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
Frances was born February 12, 1956 near Deerfield, Missouri, in the family car on the way to the Fort Scott Hospital. She was ninth of the 12 children of Herchal and Maude (Sisseck) Rolando.
After graduating from Bronaugh High School in the class of 1974 Frances met the love of her life, Dennis Lee Hill and they were married November 2, 1975, in Bronaugh. In addition to her favorite role as a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, Frances had served as a CNA at nursing homes in Nevada, Lamar, and Fort Scott, worked at Peerless Products in Ft. Scott for a short time, and retired after nine years at Thorco in Lamar. She was a natural and selfless caregiver whose greatest pleasure came from time spent nurturing, teaching, and unconditionally loving friends and family, especially her grandkids. She had an abundance of love for animals and considered her Maltese/Yorkie, Sassy, an important member of the Hill family. Frances was an active member of Lamar First Christian Church.
