“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” ~ II Timothy 4:7
Emily Powell Hill was born November 25, 1941, in Ocilla, Georgia. She was the fourth
beautiful girl and fifth child born to the late Joe and Estoria Powell. Her parents taught her
important lessons as a child and adolescent that provided the character and integrity that
she lived by throughout her life.
As a child growing up in Irwinville, Missionary Hill was active in her church, community,
and school. In her teenage years, she exemplified fine character and dignity that warranted
respect from all. Growing up in a large family, Emily matured into a loving and caring
person who thought of others and what she could do for them.
Missionary Hill received her formal education at Springfield Elementary and received her
diploma at Ocilla High and Industrial School in Georgia.
Emily married her loving and devoted husband, Spencer E. Hill. They were married in holy
matrimony on June 19, 1965. They experienced the miracle of life with their one and only
daughter, Coletta.
After marriage, Emily acquired a job with Broward County Schools Transportation. She
worked for nearly 25 years as a Bus Attendant. Throughout her life, she maintained her
objective to nurture children in becoming productive citizens. She did through her exemplary
care for children she cared for in-home throughout the years. Emily loved all children, and
they loved her. When your child was left with “Mrs. Hill”, it was no doubt that he or she

wouldn’t be taken care of. From feedings, baths, and playtime, to church, aftercare pick-
ups, and emergency drop-offs, Mrs. Hill was a devoted and loving caregiver to all children.

Though heavily involved with working on a job, taking care of home and family, Emily had
so many God-given talents. She had given her life to the Lord at an early age. She started her
Christian course as a teenager at Pine Bloom Missionary Baptist Church, Mystic, Georgia.

There she attended Sunday School and church each Sunday.
In 1986, Emily joined Holy Tabernacle United Church of God, under the leadership of
Bishop Johnnie L. Williams. It was there that she set her eyes on the prize by doing Kindom
work. Emily not only sang in the choir, she ushered, and was a devoted missionary and
faithful member until her health wouldn’t allow. Emily had a passion for dressing. She
loved her suits and hats. Emily went on to develop a business entitled, “Designer Hats and
Fashion by Emmie”. Emily would travel to many church conventions, promoting and selling
her beautiful fashions, hats, and accessories. Wherever she worked or whatever she was
asked to do, she gladly performed her tasks with a smile.
Emily was not only into fashion, but she also had a passion for cooking. Emily would prepare
and cook meals, not only for her family, but to sell dinners on Friday. Oh, how we will miss
those delicious meals.
Missionary Emily Hill was an anointed preacher. She had the type of voice that drew your
attention. She encouraged both young women and young men to appreciate their gifts and
utilize them to do the work of the Lord. One thing for sure, Missionary Emily Hill loved the
Lord and served him until the end.
A miracle of life starts when the Lord breathes his Spirit into being. It ends when He receives
it back to himself, and he whispers, “My servant, you have done well, welcome home.”
Emily was preceded in death by: her parents: Mr. Joe and Mrs. Estoria Powell, brothers: Mr.
Joe Powell, Jr., and Mr. Jonathan R. Powell, and sisters: Ms. Lizzie Eleanor Rivers and Mrs.
Rosa Bell Hall.
Missionary Hill leaves many to share sweet and loving memories: a devoted husband: Deacon
Spencer E. Hill; her only child and daughter: Coletta (James) McIntosh; brothers: Alden J.
(Bobbie) Powell, Llewelyn Powell, and Grant S. (Diann) Powell; sisters: Annette Sirmans,
Laverne Thompson, Phaustine (Milton) Marshall, Phyllistine (Dossie) Pierce, and Zanthia
Hollis; beautiful granddaughters whom she loved very much, Jaslyn, Emilise, and Laiyah
McIntosh; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, godchildren, church family, and friends.
“May the work I’ve done speak for me!”
