Mary K. Scherger Hill

Mary K. Scherger Hill went to meet the Lord on June 5th, 2013 after a long battle with MS. Although she will be greatly missed by all who love her, we have joy knowing she is with her Savior Jesus and she will no longer suffer. Mary was born the second of six children on March 22, 1954 in Billings to Robert H. Scherger of Glendive and Mary Studer Scherger of Billings. As a young girl she excelled at ballet and gymnastics. She graduated from Billings Senior High in 1972. She then met and married David B. Hill in 1974. They had two children together and later divorced in 1983. Mary devoted her life to caring for her children and was very involved in caring for her parents and siblings. She enjoyed gardening, decorating, cooking and baking. Her favorite color was pink. In 1994 Mary graduated with High Honors from Rocky Mountain College with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology. Mary used her degree as a social worker at the Mental Health Center. She spent many years caring for her clients with compassion. Mary had great sensitivity and compassion in her heart and a serving spirit. She loved to laugh and be with family. She will be greatly missed by her children, family and friends. We would like to especially thank the nurses and staff of Valley Health Care for all their care and helping her live her last year with dignity. Mary is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Jimmy. She is survived by children Ericka (Danny) Wyrwas, Ben (Jenni) Hill, grandson Jove, her sister Clare (Gary) Roberson, brothers Robert, Joseph (Michele), and John (Karen) Scherger, and their children. Memorial services will be 11am Thursday at Harvest Church, 1235 Wicks Lane.

  2. Dearest Ericka and Ben,
    I have some very fond memories of Mary in our High School days. She was always so fun–so positive–and always had kind and compassion words of encouragement for myself as well as other friends of ours. I shared many a laugh with her and hold close those memories of her. After moving back to Billings in 1990, I reconnected with Mary and we had some great talks and laughs–just like the old days of growing up. I know how much she loved you–always praying for you both and so proud of you! I feel so blessed to have known Mary and will cherish those memories. I look forward to seeing her again someday! I am sure we will again share some laughs together! I am so glad she is with Jesus right now and is forever at peace, out of pain, and totally healed! So awesome! I am so sorry to say I can’t make her service, but you will all be in my prayers in the difficult days ahead and praying that the Lord will comfort you and give you peace.

  3. Bob, I am so sorry. You have had to deal with too much grief and had to bear the brunt of responsibility as “the son/brother” in Billings. My prayers are with you. My mom just passed and was shepherded by MS or I would not have noticed. My bad. I pray for your strength. Wow. So tough. God bless. OLE

    I graduated with Mary from Rocky Mountain College in 1994. Since Mary and I were in Sociology we spent time together in and out of class. It was always a pleasure to study or just talk with her. We talked of the possibility of M.S. beginning it’s impact on her life. Since my mother had this condition I had a very real understanding of Mary’s concerns. She was a simply a wonderful and enjoyable person to be around; I know you all will miss her terribly.

  5. I got to know Mary during the time I worked at HRDC. I was impressed with her gentle spirit and her real compassion for everyone. Her soft spoken gentle determination was a real inspiration to me. She was a “class act.” I remember her sister,Clare, from gradeschool days at Holy Rosary and the Custer Avenue neighborhood. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you in your loss.
