Myrna Bea (Moncur) Hill, 82, died on Friday, June 13, 2014, at the Wyoming Medical Center, embraced and supported by her loving family. 

Myrna was born June 7, 1932, in Lovell to Marvin and Eliza Mae (Bassett) Moncur.  She lived in Lovell until the summer of 1947, at which time the family moved to Casper.  She graduated from Natrona County High School in 1950 and attended Casper College. On Jan. 25, 1951, she married the love of her life, Lloyd G. (Ted) Hill, in Casper.

While Ted attended the University of Wyoming, they lived in Laramie and Myrna was an elementary school librarian. Ted later attended Creighton University, taking them to Omaha, where Myrna worked for Mutual of Omaha. In 1952, they moved to Chicago, where Ted attended Loyola University, receiving his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1956. 

While in Chicago, Myrna was a stay-at-home mom for their first two children. In 1956, they returned to Casper.  Myrna continued being a stay-at-home mom to their five children. She never missed a sporting event or school activity that any of her children were involved in.  Myrna volunteered frequently with Our Lady of Fatima Church and Casper Service League. Through the years she enjoyed golf, bowling, reading and playing bridge.  On June 15, 2006, she lost her soul mate of 55 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Marvin and Eliza Mae Moncur, brother Bruce Moncur, husband Dr. Lloyd G. (Ted) Hill, son Gregory Charles Hill and daughter-in-law DeNece Hill.
