Obituary

Froh Hiller was born July 5, 1917 in Oxbow, Saskatchewan and died peacefully in her own home in Warren, Michigan on September 25, 2018. She grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and attended Brandon College. In 1940, she married Herbert Hiller and together they pastored churches in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Buffalo, New York; Madison, South Dakota; Edmonton, Alberta; New York City; and Detroit, Michigan- particulary Ridgemont Baptist Church (now Hope Fellowship) and Grosse Pointe Baptist Church (now Crosspointe). While Herbert was the named pastor, Froh was always a willing support by his side and served in a variety of leadership positions in both the local church and continental organizations such as serving as President of the North American Baptist WMU. Her husband Herbert also served as a Professor at Sioux Falls Seminary and while there he was in much demand as a speaker all over the continent which provided many opportunities for family car trips in an era when airplanes were not the typical form of travel over long distances. Froh was also an alto soloist and at the request of her husband, often sang songs that illustrated his sermon. She was predeceased by her husband Herbert in 1993 after 53 years of marriage and her son-in-law Richard and granddaughter Janine in 2018. Living almost 101 years, Froh lived a full life of service to others for which we are all grateful. She is survived by her two children: Harry (Edna) and Ruth; three grandchildren: Nathan (Edna), Julie (Troy), and Drew (Erin); and seven great grand children.
