I met Jill when we went to Junior Women's Club together many years ago and always enjoyed being with her. I ran into her a couple of times in the past couple of years and we finally made a lunch date last year. We had such a nice time and I am so thankful we made a connection again. My sincere sympathy to her family.

Jill was a friend of mind. We connected through Isabel Blooms, she purchased several of mine. We formed a friendship, she was smart, funny, knowledgeable and we hit it off right away. She will be missed. God Bless you Jill.

A special thank you to Jill for the times I needed a place to stay for a few hours and her door was always open. She enjoyed the company. At one time she was my insurance agent and we became close friends. She will be missed.
