Leslie Anne Hill - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Leslie Anne Hill

Leslie Anne Hill, age 80, of Newark, DE, passed away on Sunday, September 17, 2023.

Leslie and her husband, Ron spent twenty years living in Harthausen, a small village near Munich, Germany due to Ron’s job. It was an idyllic location for her to raise her two children, and she relished her time there very much. After returning to Delaware in 1987, Leslie enjoyed decorating her home, cooking, planning family gatherings, and driving around town in her purple Plymouth Prowler. In later years she joined a knitting group, and they became good friends. Leslie and Ron enjoyed meeting friends for dinner at local restaurants, notably Bakers, Skipjack, the Blue Crab Grill, Nick and Joe’s Pizza, and Daddy’s Kitchen.

Leslie was preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Anna Mae Arnold; husband of 57 years, Ron; and brother, Jack. She is survived by her children, Carrie (David) of Tyler, TX and David (Mandy) of Elkton, MD; grandchildren, Chase, Natalie, Andrew, and Lucas; and a great-grandchild due on 2/24.

All services will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Leslie’s memory to The Food Bank of Delaware, 222 Lake Drive, Newark, DE 19702 or online by clicking here.
