Jill Tyler Hurst, 18, passed away Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019 at University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital in Lexington.
Jill was born on a snowy, first day of spring on March 20, 2001. She was immediately adored by her parents, Christy Jane and Jerry Hurst, her entire family, and everyone who met her.
Jill was a proud member of the church family at First Christian Church in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky where she was a Wacky Wednesday volunteer. Jill attended Anderson County Schools where she participated in cross country and the swim team. She was an employee at Juniper Hills Aquatic Center where she was a lifeguard. Jill graduated from Anderson County High School in May 2019. She hoped to join the United States Air Force.
Jill loved to travel and had encouraged her parents to host foreign exchange students who became her chosen sisters. Jill had recently returned from Germany and had trips planned for Mexico, Ireland, and Greece in the coming months.
Jill was an organ donor and will continue to have birthdays and Christmases and travel through the lives of others. May her gifts to others allow her to become a wife, a mother, and live a long happy life.
Jill is survived by her parents, Christy Jane and Jerry Hurst of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky; her grandparents Jerry and Shirley (Blakey) Hurst and Olivia Ripy, all of Lawrenceburg. She is also survived by family members, Ken and Darla Hurst of Indianapolis, Indiana, Jay and Lisanne Hurst of Louisville, Kentucky, Bo and Melissa Spencer, Jackson Ratliff, Marley and Graham Spencer all of Lawrenceburg.
Jill was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Charles R. Whitt; maternal great grandparents, Thomas B. Ripy, Sr. and Hazel Overall Ripy, Charles Calvin Whitt and Ann Treadway Whitt; paternal great grandparents, Joe and Lucille Blakey and William J. and Emma Hurst.
