She worked for Farmers Insurance as a customer service rep for 30 years. She loved working with the agents, advising them on their client issues and concerns. They loved her so much they would wait on the line until they could talk to Jill, as they didn’t want to speak to anyone else. She was so knowledgeable and helpful, she developed quite a reputation for herself. She retired in May in 2004.
Jill was an artist at heart. She loved painting, arts and crafts, and truly loved stamping and the stamping parties.
She traveled to Australia on an exchange program and still talked about how great of an experience it was years later. It was one of the highlights of her life. She loved cruising to Alaska’s inside passage which she did several times and especially loved cruising through the Panama Canal with the family for mom and dad‘s 50th wedding anniversary.
Jill was an avid reader, always had a novel in her hand, and prided herself in her knowledge about history of ancient Egyptian pyramids. Her knowledge of history was vast and impressive.
One of her favorite hobbies was the beautiful garden of vegetables and flowers in the backyard of her home. She generously shared her bounty with everyone.
She was a member of the LDS church and participated in many activities. She loved the Lord with all her heart, all her might and all her strength and was his faithful servant.
The last eight years she made her home at Brookdale-Pocatello. The residents, care aides and staff loved spending time with her. She was always so kind, so loving, and patient with everyone. She had the heart of an Angel.
