Sophie Dawn Hill, age 11, gained her angel wings on September 23, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sophie was born June 3, 2011 in Rexburg, Idaho to Paul and Ashley Hill. After having 3 sons, Paul and Ashley couldn’t wait to finally welcome a little girl to their family.
When Sophie was 5 ½ months old she experienced her first of many seizures. Sophie was always so strong and fought through each one. When Sophie was 3 years old, after lots of testing, was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome. A severe and catastrophic form of epilepsy that devastated her friends and family as the prognosis wasn’t hopeful. But Sophie’s special spirit and will to fight kept her going on year after year, as she continued to write her own story.
If you knew Sophie she loved unconditionally, we always had to remind her that some people like their personal space and she couldn’t hug and love everyone she met. She always had a bright smile and warm hug. She loved to love and loved the idea of love. She always loved to see her parents happy and showing affection. She loved her 3 older brothers, Jayce, Kelson, and Easton Hill and loved and spent a lot of time playing with her little sister Tenley Hill.
Sophie’s Christlike love always radiated off of her, she had a huge love for life, and a huge love for her family and friends, especially her best friend Kaia. They were almost inseparable since kindergarten.
Sophie enjoyed being outdoors camping, hunting, riding the four-wheeler, but most of all she enjoyed going fishing.
She is survived by her parents Paul and Ashley Hill, siblings Jayce, Kelson, Easton, Tenley Hill, grandparents Dave and Sonya Kimball and Ferrell and Venda Hill, great-grandparents Nolan and Shanna McGuire, and lots of aunt, uncles, and cousins.
