Luba James Hill, known better as Boobie, passed away on Friday morning, June 11, 2021 at the age of 92. Born in Amory on September 9, 1928 she was a daughter to Chris and Vasilka George James. Boobie was a life-long resident of Amory and a graduate of Amory High School. She was married to Clyde Edwin Hill in 1950 and worked in her family business, The Amory Café until the 1970’s. She was a staple on Main Street, later working at G&Y Drug Store and was known as a great cook especially her Mediterranean cuisine. For many years, Boobie worked at Wal-Mart which suited her because of her love for people and would stop at any time to strike up a conversation. Her knowledge for the history of Amory was unmatched and she always kept up with the goings on in town. Even her time in the nursing home, she loved to visit with her neighbors and looked forward to going out to eat on the weekends with her son and granddaughter. She was a lifetime member of First United Methodist Church.
