Helen Hillman, 93, passed away peacefully Saturday, March 6th. She resided at Oakmont at Gordon Park, Bristol, Virginia, where she received wonderful memory care for five years. Mrs. Hillman moved to Bristol, Virginia, after the loss of her husband, Miles Hillman, after living in Honaker, Virginia for 75 years. She was also preceded in death by her parents, Reese and Dora Eaton and her siblings, Geraldine Thompson, James Eaton, Charles "Shag" Eaton, and Carl "P-nut" Eaton, Arthur Eaton and Sam Eaton. In her generation, she was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

She is survived by her three children: Randall Hillman of Honaker, Virginia; Nancy Hillman Wimmer Stone (A. J. Stone, Jr.) of Vinton, Virginia; and Michael Hillman (Sonya) of Abingdon, Virginia. Mrs. Hillman has four grandchildren: Julie Wimmer (Matt Hall) of Daleville, Virginia; Lucy Elizabeth Redman (Daniel) of Knoxville, Tennessee; Joseph Hillman (Crystal) of Honaker, Virginia; and Laura Wimmer of Henrico, Virginia. She has two great grandsons: Alex Hillman of Honaker, Virginia and Dylan Townsend of Verona, Virginia. Also surviving are three special sisters in law: Mrs. Sadie Hillman (Bud) of Dublin, Virginia; Mrs. Zora Mae Hillman (Bob) of Lebanon, Virginia; and Mrs. Ida Eaton (Charles) of Honaker, Virginia and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank the Bristol First Baptist Church and Caris Hospice and express special appreciation for the staff at Oakmont at Gordon Park.

The funeral service will be conducted at the Honaker Funeral Home Tuesday at 11 am. After the service, Mrs. Hillman will be laid to rest at the Greenhills Memory Gardens at Claypool, Virginia.

Pallbearers will be David Eaton, Jim Eaton, Charles Eaton, Doug Howard, Joey Hillman and Paul Honaker.

Nancy, Randall, and Michael: Sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. I always enjoyed visiting with Helen at her home and at Oakmont. She graciously invited me to stay and talk awhile before her health declined and the pandemic happened.
