T. Mardell Hile

Mardell Hile, 95, passed February 22, 2022 at her son’s home in Lawrence, KS surrounded by family. Mardell was born October 3, 1926, outside Gridley, KS, the daughter of Carl and Eva Bessie Sage Luthi. Mardell grew up on a farm in Lamont, KS and attended school in Lamont. She graduated from Ottawa High School and Flint Hills Vocational Technical School. She worked for Santa Fe Railroad and Hallmark Cards in Topeka, KS and retired from Newman Memorial Hospital in Emporia, KS during her long working career. She often commented that she loved all her jobs, and she loved life and people.

Mardell married Lester “Les” Hile of Quenemo, KS in Topeka on April 3, 1945, and they were happily married for 49 years. He preceded her in death in July 1994.

Most importantly, Mardell loved being a mother and grandmother. She was the greatest Mom ever! Survivors include her much loved children, Lennes (Greg) Dallas, TX, Teresa (Steve), Lawrence, KS, Ken, Lawrence, KS and Mavis (Robert), Topeka, KS, along with cherished grandchildren Jason, Jarrod (Ali), Cherie, Aaron and great-grandchildren Alexa, Lily, River, Axel, Sydney, Caroline and Andrew.

Due to Covid, a private graveside service will be held at the Apostolic Cemetery in Lamont, KS. Mardell will always be loved and will be greatly missed as she begins the next stage of her journey.

Special thanks to Dr. Kevin Stuever and his staff for the years of quality care for our mother.  A special thank you also needs to go to VNA Hospice.

From Allison Luthi...

To the family of Mardell,
My deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. It was so wonderful that she was able to attend the 2019 Luthi Family Reunion. I have precious childhood memories of playing with the Hile kids at Great Aunt Bessie Luthi’s house in Lamont. And in recent years, have treasured meeting for a meal in Lawrence with Teresa & Steve and Ken.
