Kelly Dean (Cleaver) Hill

Kelly Dean (Cleaver) Hill, 60, left this earthly realm on June 18, 2020, at her residence in Burns, TN after a long battle with metastatic lung cancer.


It would be wrong to say that Kelly lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was determined to be there for her family. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. We know that just because she is no longer here, she will always be with us in our hearts. 


Kelly was born on March 22, 1960, in Mayfield, KY to Frank and Charlotte (Davidson) Cleaver. She is survived by her mother Charlotte Cleaver of Brentwood, TN; her husband Glenn Hill and their daughter Nicole (Wes) Bowker of Burns, TN; her grandsons Benjamin Bowker and Samuel Bowker; her brother Kent (Stephanie) Cleaver of Franklin, TN; her sisters Kimberly Walker of Franklin, TN and Karen Byrd of Ashland City, TN and many nieces and nephews. 


Kelly was preceded in death by her father Frank Cleaver and her niece Christina Byrd. 


A celebration of Kelly’s life will be held at a later date at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens in the “Savior Garden”. 


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or Alive Hospice.
