Virginia (Mahn)'s Story
Virginia Irene (Mahn) Hill, 79, of Danvers, went to live with the Lord on October 10th, 2017.
Virginia was born November 3, 1937, to the late Irene Caroline (Weber) and Otto Herman Mahn in Boston. A graduate of Weymouth High School, she studied at Tufts University and Drew University, earning her degree in Art History.
An accomplished artist, Virginia was a past President and Lifetime Member of the Danvers Art Association. She served on the Board of the North Shore Arts Association.
In 2000, Hill founded the Virginia Hill Gallery on Bearskin Neck in Rockport.
Virginia’s love of travel and adventure led her all over the globe. Always an enthusiastic “tour guide” to visiting family and friends, she graciously shared her passion for local history, fresh seafood, and the scenic beauty she often captured in watercolor.
Virginia enjoyed playing Bridge, and delighted in the regular fellowship of her cherished friends.
Virginia was predeceased by her husband, Richard Hill; a brother, the Reverend David Paul Mahn, and sister-in-law, Janice Irene Mahn.
She is survived by her brother, Edward B. Mahn of Flemington, N.J.; and sister-in-law, Joyce Mahn of Canton. She will be greatly missed by her nephew, Jeffrey Mahn of Ottawa, Canada; her nieces, Sharon Mahn of Manhattan, Kristin Mahn Ervin of Emmaus, Pa., Susan Komorowski of Clinton, N.J., Laura Mahn Stout of Scituate; her namesake, Amy Virginia Mahn of Arlington, Va.; and her seven grand-nephews and grand-nieces.
A Memorial Service celebrating her life will be on Friday, November 10th, 11 a.m., at Messiah Lutheran Church, 708 Lowell St, Lynnfield. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name can be made to the Danvers Art Association, Danvers, Massachusetts, to fund a scholarship for a Danvers High School student planning to study art; the Trustees of Reservations, Beverly, MA; Messiah Lutheran Church in Lynnfield, MA, and Alcoholics Anonymous GSO, New York, N.Y.
