Riverhead, N.Y. (BNc) — Fern Hill, wife of Jerry Hill and co-founder of the Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch, Riverhead, NY, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Monday morning, May 17, 2021. 

Family and friends celebrated her graduation to glory Saturday, May 22, 2021, at the Langston Memorial Chapel, located on the grounds of the ranch. The beautiful service was streamed live on the ranch FaceBook page where many friends were able to view the service.

Fern was predeceased by two sons, Timothy and Thomas. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Jerrell Hill, her sons Titus, Thaddaeus, James, her daughter-in-law Emily, and her grandchildren Hunter, Justin (& Maddie), Ellie, TJ, and Mia.

Words cannot express the impact her life has made on so many others during her 86 years. To know Fern Hill was to love her, and many did. Our heartfelt sympathy is expressed to those she left behind when she graduated to glory May 17, 2021.
