Margaret (Gill, Burton) Hessin, a long-time resident of Manchester (New Franklin), Ohio, passed on to heaven Monday, February 6, 2017 at Arden Courts of Bath in Akron, OH.

Born in 1926 in Cambridge, Ohio, to Ethel and John Gill, Margaret lived a long and vital life until the age of 90.  She loved sewing, gardening (but not canning), flowers, camping, fishing, roller-skating (last time at 70 years old), an insatiable love of mowing her lawn, friends, neighbors, and all her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She had a mischievous sense of humor and a marvelous little impish grin that will truly be missed.  Over the years, nurses often lovingly said about her “Here comes trouble!”  But most of all she had a steadfast faith in God and an eternal belief in Jesus Christ as her savior.  She was loved by all!

She is preceded in death by husbands, James Burton and Charles Hessin; brother, Harold Gill; sister, Louise (Gill) Schneider and great-granddaughter, Nicole Burton. Margaret is survived by her 5 children, Jim (Maureen) Burton, Brodie (Barbara) Burton, Peggy (Bill) (Burton) Kerr all of MI, Tim (Bernadette) Burton and Karen (Jon) (Burton) Lair all of Akron, OH; 19 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren, and her beloved dog, Bobo.

We would like to thank Arden Courts of Bath for taking such wonderful care of mom.
