Jill, You are a star in the sky that will never extinguish. You brought light and joy to anyone who knew you. That we can no longer see your smile and brilliant aura is our loss. May you live in eternal happiness knowing how much you enriched so many lives.

I am so sorry to see Jill's obituary in the News-Leader. I am a new customer of JW Gallery, and have visited her new location on 8th Street twice. She was a lovely person and energetic about her business and her new spot on 8th. I am sorry I did not get to know her better.

Kathy and Bill Maurer

We are deeply saddened by Jill's sudden death. We loved her over 22 years. We will miss her so much and still in shock over her sudden passing. Our community will never be the same.

I’m at a loss for words. Jill was always so kind snd generous. I’m a local artist and she helped me time snd time again to get my art ready for sale and always gave me a break on the price. I admired her as a single businesswoman, and am saddened by her early departure. My prayes go out to her family.

Suzanne and John Batchelor
