Mary Hill moved to Woodbridge in 1989 with her husband Bob Hill and their 3 young children, Son Justin is now 22, Alexandra is 21 and Christine is 19. Mary chose to be a stay at home mom and as the children progressed through Beecher Road School, and Amity Regional Schools, Mary joined the ranks of parent volunteers. She was a room parent yearly at Beecher Road School for each of the children and was known for those ‘special’ Mother’s Day and holiday projects, including the annual made from scratch gingerbread house project.
She volunteered on the Beecher PTO, serving terms as Co-President, Fundraising Chair and Appropriations Chair. She worked numerous book sales and Halloween Hoots.
She continued her volunteer work outside of the education setting as a Girl Scout Leader for both of her daughters’ troops for 12 years and was involved in her son’s Cub Scout troop. During the summers she served as a Girl Scout Summer Camp Leader at Camp An-Se-Ox and a Cub Scout Camp Leader at Eisenhower Park.
As the children reached middle school age, Mary returned to her pre-parent career in Health Care Management as a billing and coding specialist at Yale New Haven Hospital, Director of Patient Financial Services at Milford Hospital and presently as Charge Master Specialist at St. Vincent’s Hospital.
Although no longer on the forefront of volunteering she continued to be involved, traveling throughout New England most weekends for her children’s sports competitions throughout their grade school and high school years.
Mary has served the town directly as a member of the Superintendent’s Search Committee at Beecher Road School and on the committee to hire new teachers. She has volunteered on the Woodridge Road Race Ad Hoc Committee, is a Commission Member of the WGATV.
In her spare time, Mary taught Religious Education, was a leader of Children’s Liturgy and Leader of Vacation Bible School for many years at Our Lady of the Assumption Church. She has also volunteered at the New Haven Soup Kitchen.
