Armenia Hilton, 89, of Nederland, TX went to be with the Lord on May 11, 2020.
She was the daughter of Louis and Fannie Van Schoubroek.
After traveling for several years, Armenia and her husband, Charles Ernest Hilton Sr. returned to live in San Augustine, TX.
He worked for a seismograph company and she followed him with the children.
They lived in Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, California, and all over Texas.
She was a member of First Baptist in San Augustine and worked in the church nursery.
Armenia ran a Day Care Center for over 15 years and raised many children.
After Charles died, she married William Hilton and moved to Nederland.
She was a member of Calvary Baptist, Nederland and loved going to Sunday school and WMU.
Armenia worked at Nederland Christian Book Store for several years and spread the love of Jesus to everyone she met.
