Sympathy and condolences to the family. I met Jill when I was a student worker for LSU Housing around 1983. She was a wonderful and friendly person. Our paths also crossed a few other times afterwards. Then, fast forward to 2013 when my daughter enrolled at LSU and Jill was there to resolve a few issues. She was still the same kind, devoted and friendly Jill. Prayers for all of you. Hold on to your memories of this wonderful lady. I know the Gates of Heaven will open wide to welcome her Home.

Chuck and Angela , I am so very very sad to hear of your mom’s passing. I hadn’t seen her in years , but we did reconnect and meet up about 12 or so yrs ago. It was just like we picked up where we left off. She was the same sweet Jill ! She was ALWAYS such a great friend to me , and we sure did share a lot of fun times together on Barringer Road . She always helped me out and offered to keep Jennifer and Daniel whenever an opportunity came up for me to go with Brewster on his business trips . Please know I will be keeping y’all and the family in my prayers.
Love , Brenda Brewster
