Carmen Hill’s life was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.” She passed away peacefully in her home on May 24, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Carmen did not lose her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she stayed strong and was always determined. She had every right to cry or be angry, but instead she loved and lived every moment she was given. There was no quit in Carmen; neither hard times nor cancer would rob her of who she was. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like.
Carmen was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. She attended Princeton High School, and went on to complete her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting at the University of Cincinnati. She loved cooking, baking, and crocheting; and she enjoyed traveling to different cities to try new foods. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Carmen was amazing with numbers and served her community well as a tax preparer, bookkeeper, and advisor. She loved going to church and to bible study. Friends and family describe Carmen as a gentle spirt, always positive, an amazing confidant, and the greatest mother and grandmother. Her help was all inclusive; she always sacrificed her needs for the good of family.
Carmen was preceded in death by her son, Junis Cirilo Sublett. When God called her home, she acknowledged the call and leaves behind to cherish her memory: her father, Carl E. Hill; mother, Nancy Provine-Turner; children, Robert (Scooby) Sublett IV, Chene’a Elyse Hill-Patterson, Anitra Janel Sublett, and Juvina Dee Sublett; 2 sisters, Nicole Bailey and Cynthia Hill; 12 grandchildren; one special niece, Trinity Bailey; long-time companion, Robert Sublett III; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Her memory will forever remain in our hearts.
