Deloris V. Hill

Sunrise: August 14, 1949

Sunset: August 24, 2018

Deloris Vernell Hill was born August 14, 1949 to the late Alvin and Mary White in Norfolk, Virginia. She was the third of eight
children reared in their loving family unit. She departed this life on Friday August 24, 2018 at her home. She received her education from Norfolk Public Schools and was last employed as a Baker/ Line Worker at the local Mary Jane Bakery. Deloris was best known for her beautiful sprit and matching beaming smile. She was very caring with a nurturing nature. Deloris did not mind giving great advice to those closest to her. Her favorite pastimes were being surrounded by her love ones and playing cards. Everyone knew that if you challenged her at any card game, then you had to be on you’re A-game! We all knew she was the best and we gave it our best to get the win. If she won, then she would make sure you never forgot the ‘L” that you took. On the rare occasion that you lucked up and won… well according to her, “you cheated!” Either way she was simply a joy to be around and there will never be another like her.
Deloris was predeceased by her three brothers; Alvin White Jr., Calvin White and Emmanuel White. She leaves to cherish her memory; five daughters; Brenda Johnson (Richard) of Atlanta, GA., Lynette Roberson (Harry Donnell) of Norfolk, VA., Sharon Spruill of Baltimore, MD., Da’Vine Hill, Nicole Owens, and her “one and only son” Johnnie Owens (Tashieka) all three of Norfolk, VA., two sisters; Mary Nowell (Jerry) of Norfolk, VA. and Gladys Moghadamfard of Williamsburg, VA., two brothers; Lionell White of Norfolk, VA., and Eric White (Cheryl) of Virginia Beach, VA., thirteen grandchildren, six greatgrandchildren,
and a host of nieces nephews, cousins and friends. Deloris, or “Miss Lois” as she was so affectionately known, possessed so much grace, resilience and optimism as well as a touch of sadness to top it all off. Anyone else would have given up with all the trials that she was given in life; however, she was the complete opposite. For we all know that God will never place more on us then we are able to handle. She took on all her battles head on, fought her fight and triumphed over it all in the end; the epitome of a strong black woman.
