Jeana Lynn Hill, age 72, passed quietly at Transitions Lifecare in Raleigh, NC on June 2, 2021. Jeana is survived by husband of 50 years, Gary Hill, daughter and granddaughter Malia (Dustin) and Marisa Fredrickson, and brothers Robert and John Surrey.
She was born in 1949 in Oak Park, IL, to her late parents Herve and Eleanor Surrey, moving soon after to Leewood, KS where she grew up. After raising their daughter in Olathe, KS, Jeana and Gary fulfilled their longtime dream of moving to the FL Keys, where Jeana enjoyed the relaxing, tropical life, before finally moving north again ~20 years later to be closer to her daughter and granddaughter in Raleigh, NC. Jeana spent her working days as a banking professional for multiple credit unions between KS, FL, and NC before her retirement.
Jeana was a loving wife and mother, and a very proud nana, loving to see the world through the eyes of her girls, with whom she also shared her passion for the Girl Scouts. She was an avid sewer, reader, lover of all things flamingo, and spoiler of dachshunds. She will be missed by many.
At Jeana’s request, only a small family celebration of life will be held. In lieu of flowers, and if so inclined, please consider a donation in memory of Jeana to the Girl Scouts, at girlscouts.org.
