I knew Jill through open class photography at the Racine County Fair. I never realized how involved in the community she was. She is going to be greatly missed by many. I will miss seeing her and working with her at the fair. She was dedicated and probably the most organized person I knew. She was strong, fair, and just a wonderful person. May she rest in peace.
