She took pride in being the big sister. Her family made a move from Lawn, Texas to Stilwell, Oklahoma in 1972. That is where she met and married the love of her life Jerry Coleman, on January 20, 1973. There they started a family welcoming their first daughter. They later moved to Hamlin, Texas and welcomed a second daughter to their family. Elaine worked as a wife and mother for many years. In 1988, the family moved to Rising Star, Texas. In the 90's she took a job working as a newspaper editor giving her the opportunity to pursue a career in her greatest passion, writing.

Elaine's first book Texas Haunted Forts was published that year after the move. She has since published many different books including fiction, cookbooks, and biographies. If she was not writing you might find her sewing, quilting or even crocheting. She collected antiques, poodles, flamingos, Elvis memorabilia, and many other things. She loved visiting her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a member of many different groups and clubs. She did genealogy research on her family. She was a member of Hopewell Baptist Church where she was a member of Women's Missionary Union, taught the women's Sunday school class, and helped gather charity donations.

Janie Rose Hill (Thornhill)

Janie Rose Hill Thornhill

May 18, 1947 - July 30, 2022

Janie Rose (Hill) Thornhill

Janie Rose (Hill) Thornhill, 75, was born on May 18, 1947 in Abilene, Texas, to Carl and Louise Hill.

After a long illness, Janie went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday July 30, 2022.

A 1965 graduate of Jim Ned High School, Janie went on to study radiology at Hendrick Health School of Radiology.

She married the love of her life, Ralph Thornhill, on Jan. 19, 1973.

Janie’s hands were rarely idle. She enjoyed quilting, stitching quilts with love at the birth of each of her grandchildren. She loved hummingbirds, feeding daily the dozens attracted to the numerous feeders she stocked. And she found great comfort in her faith and the Emmaus community in which she was active.

Janie retired in 2018 after 45 years working in health care, first as the director of Sweetwater x-ray department while still in school and later as the director of diagnostic imaging at Abilene Regional Medical Center.

Janie was preceded in death by her parents, sister Noel Lou Benningfield, brother-in-law Dave Benningfield and grandson Brady Thornhill.

She is survived by her husband Ralph of Brownwood, and their children Britton Dean Thornhill Sr. and his wife, Leisa of Tuscola and Alison Denise Thornhill of Abilene; sister Carmen Shafer of Sapulpa, Oklahoma; brother, David Hill, of Buffalo Gap, Texas; sister, Judy Needham, of Coleman, Texas; seven grandchildren (Brenden, Caleb, Brittoni, Britton, Jacob, Jadeyn and Luke) and one great-grandson (Blevin).

Visitation will be from 6 – 7 p.m. on Friday, August 5, 2022, at Midtown Church in Brownwood. Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, August 6, 2022, at Wylie United Methodist Church in Abilene.

The family requests that guests wear bright colors for the service in celebration of Janie’s life. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Brown County Prison Ministry at P.O. Box 1031 Brownwood, Texas 78604. This is a nonprofit dear to Janie’s heart that gives new backpacks filled with essentials to inmates released from the TDCJ T.R. Havins Unit.
