She was the oldest of four children and was like a second mom to her younger brother and sister. When Jill was younger she loved staying with her grandmother, Jessie Babcock Neesam. She loved her tremendously and missed her dearly after she passed.

She was a member of the Homemaker’s Women’s group and enjoyed making clothes for her young daughters. Mom had various jobs over the years including Central Colony in Sun Prairie.
Jill was artistic, she enjoyed doing ceramics, drawing, writing and reading stories with her children, Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie were some of her favorites.
