Obituary for Marjorie Hill Washington

On Thursday, October 27, 2022, God ushered Marjorie Hill Washington into eternal rest and home to be with Him. She was born to Gertrude Hill and Richard Brown on May 31, 1947, and was the eldest of Gertrude's eight children.

Marjorie attended school in Amelia County, VA, before moving to Washington, DC, in 1961. There, she

married Russell Washington and, from their union, had four beautiful children, Russell, Marnita, Stephanie, and Michelle. Marjorie loved being a mom but took great pleasure in being "Nana," as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren affectionately called her.

At an early age, Marjorie accepted Christ as her personal savior and was baptized at Reed Rock Baptist Church

in Amelia, VA. During her earlier years in Maryland, Marjorie found fellowship and was a faithful member at

Carmody Hills Baptist Church in Seat Pleasant, MD, with two of her dearest, lifelong friends, Reverend Donald

Johnson and the late Evangelist Odell Johnson, respectfully.

Upon her return to Amelia, she re-established her membership at Reed Rock Baptist Church, the home church

she loved so much, and served diligently as a missionary, senior choir secretary, Social Service Board member,

and in other capacities throughout the community. She wholeheartedly cared for everyone she came in contact

with and showed the love of God through her actions.

In 2017, Marjorie moved back to Maryland and joined Whole Life Ministries International in Temple Hills, MD.

First Lady Annette Bryant lovingly shares, "Mother Washington joined on May 5, 2019. She read the Kingdom

Notices on the 4th Sunday, which was dedicated to our seniors, and she attended senior bible study every

Thursday, where they were taught the word of God. After class, they would have lunch and fellowship. Mother

Washington was a great member and loving to the body of Christ; one who listened and encouraged others."

Marjorie was employed with the Library of Congress for 32 years, where many of her colleagues became

lifetime friends. She was highly respected by all. While assigned to the Congressional Research Services Team

(CRS Division), she attended classes to further her education and career. Marjorie's research for Congress did

not go unnoticed, and she often received endowments for her many accomplishments. She worked hard to

reach the goals she had set for her life, never failing to put God and her family first.

Marjorie is preceded in death by her sister, Lillie O'Neal Hill Sims (Pee Wee), her brother, Watt Edward Hill and

her nephew, Douglas M. Hill.

She leaves to cherish her memory a son, Russell C. Washington Jr., of Accokeek, Maryland; three daughters,

Marnita E. (Royce) Robinson of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Stephanie O. (Philip) Higgins of Accokeek, Maryland,

Michelle Lynch of District Heights, Maryland; Seven grandchildren, Satinae, Brittani, Bianca (Michael), Frank,

Hannibal (Logan), Justice, Philip II (Maxine); Five great-grandchildren, Peyton, Dearron (Mason), Micah,

Valentina, and Nola; One sister, Lillian Craft of Rice, VA; Four brothers, Joseph Hill (Mary Carol) of King

George, VA; Wayne Hill of Rice, VA, Warren Hill of Amelia, VA and Calvin Hill of Appomattox, VA; One brother in

love William Sims of Rice, VA; One sister in love Hazel Hill of Hampden Sydney, VA; Special nieces and nephews,

Tracelynn Watson, Stacey (Sharmane) Sims, Sharnique Sims; Special great nieces and nephews, Noah, Kendel,

Jaiden, and a host of other family and friends.

Viewing Monday, November 7, 2022 at Reed Rock Baptist Church, Amelia from 11:00 AM until time of service at 1:00 PM.  Interment Hill and Webster Cemetery, Amelia.
