Eva Mae (Shelman) Hill, Cameron, Missouri, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by four generations of family, on September 5, 2020. She was born on March 20, 1928, to Tommy and Bessie (Cooper) Shelman, in Weatherby, Missouri.

She married George Coleman, who died a few years later.
Eva married George Hill, father of Terry and Connie Hill, in 1952.

Eva was preceded by spouses, George Coleman and George E. Hill; parents, Tommy and Bessie Shelman; brothers, Floyd (Nelle) Shelman, Norman (Cynthia) Shelman, nieces, Mary Shelman and Lauren Courtney; nephew, John Shelman; and loving companion, Rowdy, her Jack Russell Terrier.

Survivors: son, Terry (Judy) Hill; daughter, Connie Sue (Rodney) Schroeder; brother, Max (Nancy) Shelman; niece,Tammy (Brad) Courtney and son, Jordan.; grandchildren, Don (Linda) Hill and children, Cale, Quade and Kyler; Jodie Walker and children, Koty, Damon and Jonah and Holly Doran; Nieces, nephews and grandchildren; Hailey, Brandon, Tom Shelman, Tara Shelman and cousins, Vickie and Jill Ensign.
Eva also leaves behind her college roommate and life-long friend, Evelyn (Richard) King.

Eva became the loving wife of George Hill and devoted mother of Terry and Connie in 1952. She never met a baby or child she didn’t love to acknowledge. No sewing machine ever had more miles put on it that Eva’s did. She always had a room full of fabric and made sure that all of the females in the family had a polka dot outfit. She was a lover of cooking and one time got bored with her recipes and started to make all of the casserole recipes in one of her cookbooks. George told her that he didn’t understand why she was making all of those new casseroles when her recipes couldn’t be beat. That ultimate compliment was all that was needed to get rid of those recipe books. Eva was famous for her sourdough bread recipe and shared the bread and cinnamon rolls with many friends and relatives. Eva had many hobbies and bowled with friends for many years. She was a little but mighty golfer, and never missed the weekend Golf Tournaments on television. When told that she needed to walk to make her bones stronger, she started to walk. She was walking around 6 miles per day up until the time that she had to retire from walking. Everyone in town that actually knew she walked could set their clock by her as she passed their homes.

Eva devoted many years to the care of her disabled niece Mary Shelman.She received the City of Cameron’s Service to Mankind Award for her many good deeds to others.
Eva loved playing the piano and organ and loved to sing. She could yodel with the best of the country western singers back in the 60’s. She was of many talents even though she never proclaimed to be talented in any way. She had undying energy even while taking treatment for Hodkin’s Lymphoma and recuperating from two strokes and Melanoma. Eva was a devoted member of the First Christian Church of Cameron up to the time that George Hill’s health declined and she was needed at his side. She took charge of his care and comfort. She was a woman on a mission.
The family plans to delay the graveside service until spring. Memorials may be made in her name to Comfort Care Hospice of Cameron, and Linda’s Precious Pets.
Eva’s favorite singer was Frank Sinatra and she would always tell the song goes…”I Did it My Way!”
