Betty Gammons Hill

January 10, 1939March 22, 2021

Betty Marie Gammons Hill, age 82, died on March 22, 2021. She was born on January 10, 1939 to Howard Gammons Sr. and Ethel Leonard Gammons.

She graduated from Hasty High School in 1957 and went on to graduate from Ashemore Business College. She worked at Thomasville Furniture Industries where she met her husband of 61 years, Hubert. After leaving TFI, she became an Office Manager for H&R Block. Eventually, she went on to open her own tax preparation service and met the needs of over 500 customers annually.

Betty was a member of Fairmont Park Baptist Church for many years where she served as a Sunday School teacher and youth leader. She was also a member of Trinity Baptist Church. When she wasn’t working or volunteering for the church, Betty spent her time doing things, she loved the most: gardening, cooking, and most importantly, being a mother, and not just to her children, but all of the children in the neighborhood.

Betty is survived by her husband, Hubert Leon Hill, of the home; four children, Duane Hill of Thomasville, Melissa Xavier (Brian) of Idaho, Kevin Hill of Trinity, and Steven Hill (Teresa) of Trinity; nine grandchildren, Ryan, Tyler, Derrick, Caleb, Annie, Anna, Adam, Alston, and Andrew; two great-grandchildren, Victoria and Braxton; one sister, Phyllis G. Stanley of Thomasville; three brothers, Howard Gammons Jr. (Mary Ann) of Thomasville, Wayne Gammons (Karen) of Denton, Bobby Gammons (Pat Meredith) of Thomasville; and many special nieces and nephews whom she always cherished. She was preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Ethel Gammons.

The family will greet friends from 1-1:45 pm on Friday at Sechrest-Davis Funerals & Cremations of Thomasville, 18 Randolph Street, Thomasville, NC 27360.

A graveside service officiated by Charlie Patrick will be held at Holly Hill Memorial Park, 401 W. Holly Hill Road, Thomasville, NC 27360 on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 2:00 pm.

I am so very sorry to hear of dear Betty passing. She was a very dear Christian lady and I learned so much from Betty and sharing devotions and scripture reading from the Bible with Betty. She was a beautiful lady and I always loved to see her beautiful smile. I have so many wonderful memories of Betty, Hubert and their wonderful family and will always cherish these memories. It was a true blessing to know Betty. May you each know that I am thinking of you all and praying for you all. Sincerely, Donna Myers Sutton

Our heartfelt condolences on the passing of Aunt Betty. Such a beautiful child of God, loving and supportive wife, caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend. Will cherish my memories of her as she was always kind and loving to us kids as we ran through her house, played tag around her house, and many other activities that kids of the 70s would do! My husband and children also loved her as she was interested in their lives. Her memory will go on and wonderful stories will continue through the years as she also made an impact on her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Love and sympathy to you all,
Jessica, Tim, Matthew, Katie & Levi

I just want to extend my condolences to the family and let them know they are in my prayers. I had the opportunity to get to know Hubert first when I went to work at TFI in August, 1966. I was 18 years old and just out of high school. I worked in production planning and my desk was directly in front of the payroll department where Hubert was the manager if I remember correctly. There were no doors in these departments and the desk I sit at was in a straight line with Hubert's. He was and is such a nice man and we both worked for TFI for a lot of years. I then got to know Duane many years later at TFI and he was a good friend to me and my brother Phil. I have gotten to know Kevin on Facebook he is also very nice. They are a great family.
Just know that Betty is now completely healed and in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
