Private family service scheduled
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy 4:7
Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, Aneda Rosalind Good Luck Hill, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 30, 2020.
She was born on May 10, 1942 to Louis “Tex” and Alice (Iron) Good Luck Sr. in Crow Agency, Montana. She was a member of the Ties the Bundle Clan and a child of the Piegan Clan.
As the oldest girl in the family, she was taught to sew, bead, cook and so much more by her mother and her aunts; Stella Whiteman, Ruby Goes Ahead and Iris Three Irons. She would later pass these skills onto her younger siblings, daughter, nieces, and grandchildren. She was an avid reader, reading anything, especially current affairs, both domestic and foreign.
She met the love of her life, Norbert Hill, and the couple married in 1964. Mr. Hill passed away a year later in 1965. From this union, they were blessed with one child, Verly Sue.
She graduated from Lodge Grass High School. She later attended Bacone College in Oklahoma and Eastern Montana College in Billings, Montana, before graduating with a business certificate from Missoula Business School. She was employed by the Indian Health Service and retired after 40 years of service. This work ethic inspired her family to also work until retirement in government service.
As she got older, she enjoyed making elk tooth dresses, buckskin dresses, and shawls for her nieces, sisters-in-law, granddaughters and relatives. She also enjoyed cooking for her family and watching her grandsons and granddaughters play basketball for the various local teams.
After her retirement, she was actively involved in ministries both in Montana and abroad. She belonged to the Everlasting Covenant Congregation in Billings and the House of Prayer church in Crow Agency. At the time of her death, she was the national coordinator of Wailing Women International. In July 2018, she was invited by Wailing Women to Melbourne, Florida as the official indigenous welcome for the international members. In October 2019, she was commissioned as Apostle Aneda Hill at the Church on the Rock by Dr. John Benefiel and Dr. Nigel Big Pond. As a missionary, she traveled throughout the United States as well as South Africa, Ethiopia, Israel, Mexico, Italy, Germany and Hawaii spreading the Gospel. She started the Presidential Prayer Breakfast all over the Crow reservation honoring the 45th President of the United States. She hosted the yearly Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) in August 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 in Crow Agency. She also initiated monthly all-night prayer in Billings, Pryor, and Crow Agency. She hosted the Crow, Northern Cheyenne, Sioux, and Blackfeet tribal reconciliation on November 2017.
She is preceded in death by her parents; husband; grandparents Edward and Angela (Brass) Iron, Matthew Good Luck, Ruth “Mussette” Bright Wings, and Maggie Brass; sisters Andrea Faith Good Luck, Evangeline Blacksmith, Marlene Whiteman, Kaneeta and Lani Red Star; brothers Gary Good Luck, Larry and Everett Whiteman, Adrian, Myron, and Elias Goes Ahead, Dean and Wallace Three Irons; niece Lona Lee Fritzler and grandson Zachariah LaForge.
She is survived by her daughter and best friend Verly Hill (Gabe); grandchildren she raised as her own Kyle (Farrol), Jesse (Renesa), Tahneya, and Natasha LaForge; adopted daughters Missy (Randy) Falls Down, Tina Cline, Kathy Plainfeather, Lisa Morris of Window Rock, Arizona; sisters Joyce Good Luck and Lavonne Spotted Horse; brothers Louis (Alda) Good Luck Jr., Clinton and Johnny Lee Good Luck; her first cousins from the Iron, Three Irons, Goes Ahead, Good Luck, Black Eagle, and Bright Wings families that she took as her siblings; nieces Angela (Hartford) Bear Claw, Robyn (Vance) Crooked Arm, Audrie, Kaitlyn, Raven, Rosalind “Fozzy” Good Luck, Vonna (Champ) Falls Down, Meigha (Merlyn) Tsosie; nephews Ruben Spotted Horse, Kolan and Gary Joel Good Luck, Darren and Elvin (Casaja) Fritzler; grandchildren David, Timmy, Kade, Chad, Ivery, Taneal, Tines, Israel, November Rain, Valeena, Landon, Caleb, Blake, Shaylei, Keslyn, Kaelor, Lovae, Chezney, Brody, Tobin, Heston, Lanaea, Laura, Alaina, Valerie, Paradise, Asiah, Zion, Corey; great-grandchildren McKenna, Daon, Amaurie, Julian, Treyson, Tehree, Seth, Alice, Nakia, Keyonna, Phyllis, David Jr., Kamree, Kyran, Ryley, Amaris, Zanen, Kalan, Lilly, Athena, Ares, and Hyrum; one great-great-grandchild Addilynn Grace Collette Spotted Horse; special friends Colleen Caplett, Jolene White Clay, Carol Bullinsight, Joanne Rock Above, Latonna Old Elk, Georgine Falls Down, Janice Wilson, and Mary Hogan-Wallace.
She is also survived by her extended family including the Brass, Otter Stays in the Water, Star Black Hawk, Yellow Mule, Iron, Leider, Walks Over Ice, Spotted, Red Wolf, Hunts the Arrow, Good Luck, Little Owl, Covers Up, Bad Horse, and Bright Wings families. We apologize if we have forgotten anyone in our time of grief. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at St. Vincent’s Hospital for taking care of Rosalind during her hospital stay.
