The Dallas Cowboys announced Monday night that Janet Hill, Janet’s wife, was no longer with us. Janet Hill was the wife of the former running back and team consultant Calvin Hill.
“We are so saddened to learn of the passing of Janet Hill. First and foremost, she was a wonderful grandmother, mother, wife, and a cherished member of the Dallas Cowboys Family,” the Cowboys said in a statement. “Janet was also a remarkable leader and role model for many while making an indelible impact on those she knew and worked with. She uniquely served and benefited our community and our country in very special ways over the course of her amazing life journey. Our prayers are with Calvin, Grant, the entire Hill family and so many others who were touched and enriched by having Janet in their lives, like we did.”
Janet and Calvin were heavily involved in their respective communities. They are the parents of Grant Hill, a former NBA star.
Dallas has always loved the Hilly family, particularly since Calvin was an All Pro player for the Cowboys between 1969-1974.

Janet Hill’s cause of death has not been disclosed.
Hill could be honored by the Cowboys at one point in either the regular or preseason.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hill family.
