Our Family Serving Your Family For More Than 40 Years


Plan Ahead


January 10, 1936 –
 September 10, 2022


Ann Hill Eastman was born in Williamsport, PA on January 10, 1936, to loving parents Spencer and Olive Hill. She passed away on September 10, 2022. She was 86 years old.

Ann loved spending time with her family, particularly during the summer when she vacationed in Galveston, Texas with family members. She loved fresh seafood, and a vacation highlight every summer was greeting the local shrimp boats to buy shrimp for a shrimp boil feast.

Her favorite time of the year was Christmas, which she made extra special for her family and friends by hosting an open house every Christmas Eve serving such delights as homemade cookies, sugar plum cake, dried beef rolls, shrimp dip and the like. She always prepared the Christmas Day feast and never forgot her cinnamon apples and the John Cope’s corn!

She played bridge, was an avid reader of the latest novels, belonged to a monthly book club and a supper club. She never missed a Williamsport High School or John’s Hopkins reunion. Her favorite T.V. show was the Carol Burnett Show.

Ann handled many hard challenges in her lifetime, but she always met them head on with grit and determination. She was a strong, loving woman who led a purposeful life in both family and career. Throughout the ups and downs, she maintained a positive attitude and kept kindness, forgiveness and love in the forefront.

She was a graduate of Wilson College and John’s Hopkins School of Nursing. She received her master’s degree in Nursing from Texas Women’s University. She had a lengthy and successful career as a school nurse for the Carrollton/Farmer’s Branch School District and Health Administrator for the Dallas Independent School District. She was a recipient of several prestigious awards commending her exemplary service to public school health.

Ann is survived by her daughters, Robin Ann Eastman of Arlington, TX, Holly Gray Studinger and son-in-law Bob Studinger of Englewood, CO, her granddaughters, Sylvia Ramirez of Bryan, TX, and Emily Ramirez of Arlington, TX, and a great grandson, Kylan Ramirez of Arlington, TX; her sister, Irene Mnick  and brother-in-law Joe Mnick of Fort Mill, SC, and her brother, Spencer Hill of Littleton, CO; nephew Jeff  Mnick of San Antonio, TX, and niece Stacey Mnick Vinson of Charlotte, NC.  She also leaves behind numerous loving friends.

Funeral Services have been entrusted to North Dallas Funeral Home, A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday September 24,2022  at 12:00pm at North Dallas Funeral Home located at 2710 Valley View Ln, Farmers Branch, TX 75234.

    I will always remember you Ann, how you took me into your home when Robin and I were in our junior year of high school. I was having problems at home and you allowed me to stay with you all. I will never forget you always made dinner every night, and you always welcomed me to eat with you all.

    Even though I know it was hard, I always felt welcomed and loved and I’m so grateful to you for that, thank you for your loving kindness.

    Thank you Jesus for inviting us into your loving arms and making a heavenly home for us.

    I know that you will be so missed by Robin and Holly and their families. I pray that they will continue to feel your love, peace and comfort and remember you are in the loving arms of Jesus✨

    You took me in when I was young and in need. You opened your home to everyone on Christmas Eve’s. What great memories of those fun, unconditionally loving (and smoke filled) evenings! Your home was always welcoming and open. Thank you.
    I’m so happy we got to visit not so long ago. I know you are at peace and in the loving arms of Christ.
    Go in peace and know that you were loved.
    God bless you Robin for all that you have done and the love and care that you have given your Mom for so many years. May you find peace as well. Love you, my friend.

    As I sat next to your bed, stroking your hair and humming our tune, you smiled and opened your eyes; looking at me you said “You Love Me Very Much, Don’t You.” It wasn’t really a question, as much as an affirmation. Thank you mom for teaching me to love. Rest In Peace

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
