Kerrie L. Hill Junker, 62, died at her home In Johnson on Monday, July 16, 2018.
She was born July 8, 1956, daughter of Barbara and Emery Hill.
Kerrie was a strong-willed individual who charted her own path. She spoke her mind and people listened. Her jubilant personality and sense of humor were contagious and lifted the spirits and hearts of those around her.
Kerrie was a childhood educator with the Head Start program for a number of years, and was a caring compassionate mentor to many families and children in Lamoille County. She was a summer girl at heart and found peace and calm with her husband, Jules, during their trips to the beaches of Gloucester, Mass. She enjoyed traveling to Montreal and Boston, and their many adventurous boating trips to Savage Island on Lake Champlain and the serenity and peace of her favorite place in the world, Lake Caspian in Greensboro.
She could read the woods and was a crack shot with a rifle.
Kerrie was an artist, a talented writer, and loved things of beauty, from a flower to the invaluable pieces of art. That is what gave her the spark for life. She was an amazing friend, was good with people, truly cared for others, and had a talent for picking out the right gift for someone to lift their spirits.
She loved growing up in the unfinished houses that her father built and had a keen sense of design and style. The shining stars in her life were her son Dakota/Kody and her most valued gifts were her grandchildren Violet and Emma.
Survivors include her husband, Jules; their son, Dakota; grandchildren Violet and Emma; her sister, Susan Conger; her brother, Robert Hill, and sister-in-law, Lynda; her sisters and brother-in-law, Susan Morrill, Aimee, Casey, Payne and Elise Junker; many nieces and nephews; and many dear friends, including Lynne, Lee, Donna, Sally and Pam and Rick.
Her parents died earlier, as did her brother Blaine.
Burial will be at the convenience of the family in the Lamoille View Cemetery in Johnson. Faith Funeral Home is assisting with arrangements. To send online condolences: faithfh.net.
