    What a kind and generous lady who's parted too soon! I already miss seeing her each Friday a.m. when she volunteered at Williston Middle School. My sincere condolences to the entire family and her large network of friends. Peace to you all.

    Jill was one of my supervisors when I was at UNCW and working part-time at TJ Maxx back in ‘93-‘95. She had a special light about her, always kind, always warm, and even on the busiest nights and we were ready to leave the store, she made sure all those hangers and pant hangers were straightened. GOD bless her family, her husband and children. I was lucky to cross her path of light and love. I am sorry for what she endured, but her smile and kindness remains in my memories and forever in my heart.
