Hillary Egresits was born on June 3, 1963 to the late Robert and Evelyn Cheriff nee Gross. She passed away in her home on November 30, 2021 at the age of 58 after a short and brutal battle with stage IV Lung Cancer.

Hillary was a New York girl at heart, spending her childhood in an apartment in Brooklyn with her sister Deb and parents Evelyn and Bob. Never too far were her cousins Helene, Janice, Bobby, Richard, Karen and Howard. In the summer, Hillary spent many days in the Hamptons with her best friend Mona, who after 50 years, is still like a sister to her. While working in the city, she also shared an apartment with her spiritual twin, Valerie, who still holds some of their greatest memories.

Everyone who ever knew Hillary fell in love with her grace, wit, beauty, and of course, sass. Lots of sass. She spent the next few years of her life traveling the world with her husband Steve, a few notable places being Vienna, Phuket, Paris, and her personal favorite, Bali. She settled down in Chicago and became a mother to two beautiful and very tall children, Stephen and Elizabeth. Every Christmas and Easter was spent with her sisters- and brothers-in law Claudia, Marc, Andrea, and Ray, nephews Justin and Michael, and in-laws Stephan and Gertrude.

Hillary was always a mother first and went above and beyond for her children every single day. No matter if it was a class play, a late-night school project, or a baseball game, she always showed up. Hillary worked since she was 15, and everyone knew what drive and passion she possessed. So when the time came, she put that energy into in her children.
While Hillary is no longer physically with us, she lives on in the hearts in everyone who ever had the privilege of knowing and loving her.

Private service will be held on Friday, Dec. 3, 3PM at Chicago Jewish Funerals, 8851 Skokie Blvd. (at Niles Center Road) Skokie. Hillary will be interred next to her mother at the New Montefiore Cemetery in NY. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to LUNGevity, 228 S.
