Jill and I met when we worked for the State of Arizona. After retirement we became close and I felt like she was my sister, not just my friend. We traveled together, played cards together with another close friend. Freda Harris, and the three of us had breakfast together every week in Glendale, AZ. We are devastated by her loss and will always cherish the memories of our time together with Jill. She was a truly unique and absolutely wonderful woman. Her life was a series of challenges which she faced with courage and grit. She loved her family so very much and we often talked of her sons, her grandchildren, her sisters and close friends. She was so very proud of her family. I am missing her so very much and always remember her in my prayers and with love.

I was so inspired by Jill's upbeat personality. Her intelligence and strength to keep going no matter what and Her dedication and Love for Her siblings. I was one of the youngest cousins as we were growing up so was not able to spend as much time with her as I would have liked. But as we spent more time over the last few years, my admiration for Jill grew. So To Jill's sisters, I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry to all of Jill's family members on their loss.
I have great memories of Jill when we were growing up as cousins.
The Bergers, Kopps, Morrows, O'Briens and Reillys really enjoyed spending time playing together in Indiana, Jill was always "cool" to me because of her mature attitude.
May God bless her soul with eternal salvation.
