BELLVILLE — “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you,” Ephesians 4:32. It was the very grace of God that became the soil from which Vicki Hull’s tenderheartedness grew. Her lifelong support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Wounded Warrior Project reflected a heart full of compassion for others.
Characterized by her devoted care for others, lifelong Bellville resident Vicki Hull passed away Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014, in her home following a sudden illness. She was 64.
Vicki was born Feb. 16, 1949, in Mount Vernon, to parents Lloyd Eugene and Virginia Ilene (Clever) Hull. She was the only girl among four brothers and graduated from Clear Fork High School.
She worked for Gorman Rupp Industries for over 30 years as a Quality Control Inspector and upon retirement took the full-time volunteer position, executive assistant to mom and dad. Vicki liked to work with her hands and was skilled at crocheting, knitting and cross-stitching. She got everyone laughing with her sweet, yet sarcastic, sense of humor.
In addition to her father, Lloyd Eugene Hull of Bellville, she is survived by three brothers and their spouses, Larry and Diane Hull of Bellville, Robert and Lynn Hull of Bellville, and Martin and Debbie Hull of Shelby; a sister-in-law, Cheryl Hull of Altamonte Springs, Fla.; seven nieces and nephews and spouses, Tammy and Joe Copley of Ontario, Tim and Heather Hull of Bellville, Laura and Brian Peugh of Fredericktown, Amy McBride and Dana Tuttle of Plymouth, Billy Hull of Orlando, Fla., Scott and Brittany Hull of Ashland, and Brian Hull of Shelby; 12 great-nieces and nephews; and very close friends, Connie and Nellie.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Virginia Hull and a brother, Dan Hull.
Services will be announced in the future for a memorial service at St. Paul Lutheran Church with burial in Bellville Cemetery.
Contributions in her memory may be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or the Wounded Warrior Project and sent in the care of the funeral home at P.O. Box 3085, Mansfield, OH 44904.
Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve Vicki’s family and private messages to them may be sent at SnyderFuneralHomes.com.
