October 6, 1958 - February 18, 2016
Gloriously brave and graciously thoughtful, Jill lived an amazing life full of love, happiness and laughter.
After a courageous battle with cancer, Jill passed away peacefully in the early hours of Thursday, February 18, 2016.
She was surrounded by her adoring husband John and cherished daughters Jennifer and Pamela.
Jill was born on October 6, 1958, to Florence and Garfield (Bub) Hutton in Chateauguay Quebec.
After graduating from St. Lawrence College with a Nursing Degree, Jill pursued a 25 year career caring for others. Jill had a zest for life and had a special gift for bringing people together and making everyone feel special, from her long-time friends from Chateauguay, friends in Whitby, and new friends in Harbour Village. She will be missed at the family’s cottage in Prescott, on the golf course, and at Costco.
Jill’s infectious smile will be sadly missed by her husband John, daughters Jennifer (Alex) and Pamela (Nick), her mother Florence and a large extended family including sisters Joan, Jane (Mike), Susan and sister-in-law Cynthia (David), brother-in-law David (Jenny) and nieces and nephews Tony, Tracey, Scott, Caitlin, Tommy, Jillian, Shelby, Sam, Ben, Johnathon, Kaylee, Alexandra, Owen, Lily, and Kate and an endless number of family and friends.
With special thanks to the wonderful medical staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa – Cancer Centre for their wonderful care.
