Jill was the type of person that brightened up your Day just because you ran into her at the Grocery store. Always a smile on her face and something positive and interesting to say. What a beautiful Soul!!! I am blessed to have been able to call her my friend!

My heart goes out to your family. I’ve known Jill for close to 50 yrs. We grew up across Watererview from each other and she was one of my sister’s closest friends. I always will remember Jill with a smiling face and never a negative thing to say about anyone. She was a true angel.

Tom Ingram says:

A couple of RHS reunions ago Jill told me she was a avid tennis player. She knew I was in the tennis business and a teaching professional, so I hope the family does not mind when I get to heaven that they let me hit some tennis balls with her. There is tennis in heaven! So fill to me the parting glass, goodnight and joy be with you all. My God bless and comfort you.

Melissa Willis says:

I am so saddened to hear about your loss. Jill was a sorority sister of mine. The picture you posted is exactly how I remember her – smiling and full of life! She had a special flair about her and everytime anyone who knew her thinks of her will remember her smile and sweet personality. She is a special angel.

Many blessings for Jill’s family as you go through these difficult times. I’m very thankful you all have such wonderful memories and faith to lean on. Jill was a true lady and someone our the entire RHS school looked up to as a roll model. She will be greatly missed. Prayers for each of you.
