Mary Ann Commander Hill joined her Lord and Savior on Saturday, September 12, 2020 with her family by her side. Her rich 94 years of life were full of many blessings, both given and received. She was a sweet, southern lady from Florence, South Carolina with a beautiful spirit, accent, and charm to match.

Mary Ann was born on December 13, 1925, to Letha Jane Walters and Lawrence Allen Commander. She attended the University of South Carolina and studied Secretarial Sciences. She worked as a Federal Employee for three decades, with the last 12 years of her career at the Forestry Sciences Lab in RTP, North Carolina. She retired in 1984 and retained residence in Cary, North Carolina.

Mary Ann was married to James Winston Hill of South Carolina for 32 years; the couple was blessed with their only child, Carol, born in Florence, SC. The family relocated to North Carolina in 1963 and thrived in the Capital City before moving to Cary, North Carolina in 1969.

Mary Ann enjoyed spending time with her family and friends while providing a warm, welcoming home for all. She had a passion for adopting animals and found pleasure helping others in need. Her personal talents and interests included gardening, home décor, sewing and especially raising her grandchildren.

She is survived by her loving daughter, Carol Ann Hill McCullen; two granddaughters, Leslie and Lauren McCullen, and a host of extended family and friends that will miss her dearly.

Mary Ann was predeceased by her parents and siblings, Dorothy “Dot” Lucille Commander McKellar, James Allen Commander, and Vernon Walters Commander.

The family will receive friends from 5-8pm at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home of Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. A service will be held at 1pm on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at Mt. Hope Cemetery Mausoleum Chapel in Florence, South Carolina.

Mary Ann’s family would like to thank Bella Rose Nursing and Rehab Facility for attending to her needs in the later stages of life, and Margaret Dunston for her years of personal companionship and loving care. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mary Ann’s memory should be made to the Wake County SPCA or any preferred local animal shelter.

Mary Ann and I worked together many, many years ago at the Hallmark store in Cary Village Mall. She was such a sweet and kind lady; always enjoyed the time we spent working together. Thinking of her family.

Carol, my deepest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time. The loss of a parent creates a void that hurts less over time if filled with wonderful, loving memories. Wishing you and your family peace, comfort and strength. Sending hugs and prayers. Leona and Steve Skonberg
