She was a fantastic listener, who always had an available word of wisdom. She truly loved family and laughter. Jill had the privilege of chairing the Board of St. Andrew's United Church in Markham, in her healthier days. Loving "Nana" to Ben Nolan, Gavin and Blake Drohan, Meghan and Nolan Keeley and Hailey and Hayden Opyc. A rainbow shines in our lives today.
