Jill Lanette Robinson
1965 ~ 2018
Jill Lanette Robinson, born to Wayne and Ronny Robinson on October 8th, 1965, remains our loving daughter, sister, mom, aunt, gramma, and best friend. She was a homemaker, crafter, and someone who believed in not random, but constant acts of kindness. Jill was as thoughtful as they come. A single mother who raised four beautiful children to whom she gave the world and more. She was an excellent gardener, football watcher, last-minute camper, and a really loud fisher. She loved the horse races, piano-playing, dime collecting, going to plays, movies, and hockey games. She had really great legs and the most beautiful eyes and smile. She was a total badass who graduated Police Officer Standard Training in 2004, her long-time dream, and took pride in re-certifying every year since. She was our comfort, our dance partner, our biggest fan, our April-Fools Day Prankster, our actual bone-marrow-donating life-saver, our Super-Mom, our sweet "Zelma," and the hardest worker we ever knew. She was devoted to her job as a Code-Enforcement Officer during the week and her services in the Danville Women's Group Home on the weekend, and she spent every other moment helping others or being with her beloved children and grandchildren. She could not have been prouder of her four kids going through college and pursuing their dreams as a Teacher, a Lawyer, an Actor, and a Stage Technician. She was as much of a gift to her grandchildren as they were to her. She spoiled them with toys, horsey-back rides, funny noises, and trips to the pool. Her love will be a guiding light to all those who are so lost without her now, and she will always be remembered as our Hero.
She is survived by her children Jessica (Mike) Knorr, Katie (Tyler) Merrill, Halie (Nate) Merril, Riley Merrill, Emalee Egelund; grandchildren Izac and Zayne Knorr; parents Wayne and Ronny Robinson; and her siblings Joan (Kevin) Cox, Jaren (Shauna) Robinson, David (Marci) Robinson, Julie (Kent) Egelund.

Jill was one of those people who make our city safer and more comfortable for everyone. From the family's remembrances, she made contributions all the time, wherever she was ... giving a part of her nature. She and her life are models for us to note and practice. Sincere condolences.
