Jill was a true people person; she was always happy and loved serving those around her. She loved volleyball, dancing, socializing, Tuesday night movies, being in the temple and doing anything with her singles groups. She was part of a group that would do service projects around Utah and got so much joy out of seeing someone else smile. She had a gift for making people feel welcome and bringing people together. She loved hugs and she gave the best hugs. She had a memory like no one else. She knew everyone by their names and could remember exactly how and when she had met you. She accepted everyone, no matter what, and was loyal to everyone. She will be deeply missed.

Funeral services were April 20, 2017, in Spanish Fork. Interment was in the Spanish Fork Cemetery.
