Her legacy lives on in her husband, Rick; her daughters, Stacey and Shelby; her father, Len; and her brother, Phillip. A celebration of her life will take place at 11am on July 19th at First United Methodist Church of Dallas. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jill Button Scholarship at Pearce High School or the Mission Fund at FUMC, Dallas.
