After just a few short hours in this world, Charlotte Elizabeth Hill passed away peacefully in her parents’ arms at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis. This tiny, beautiful angel had full wisps of dark brown hair, her father’s button nose, and her mother’s ocean blue eyes. Born at 11:47 p.m. on Aug. 1, 2017, the next morning Aug. 2, 2017, at 9:15 a.m. she went to be with Jesus. While her time here on earth was brief, her soft, sweet spirit will live on in our hearts forever.

Charlotte Elizabeth joins her great grandparents, Edward and Merna Hill, Herb and Dana Lamprecht, Jean Ritthaler, and Keith and Jean Moser, in heaven.

She is deeply loved and missed by her father and mother, Donovan and Emily Hill of Belleville, Ill.; her grandparents, Dennis and Diana Hill of Spring Bay, Ill., and Keith and Debbie Moser of Morton, Ill.; her great-grandfather, Arthur Ritthaler of Morton, Ill.; and countless others.
