She married her beloved husband, Kevin Gene Ward, on October 9, 1976 in Montclair, California. Jill loved to love people. She enjoyed camping and being with her family. Her grandchildren were her life. She also enjoyed the many trips she took to be with her long-time best friend, Darcy Coulter, to shop or just simply be next to each other. Many people stated “she brought happiness to all of us, even those that she wasn’t involved with day to day have the best memories and feelings about her.” She worked at the Federal Reserve Bank in Los Angeles prior to moving to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 1989. In Havasu, she finished off her career at Desert Pest Control where she worked for 9 years. She enjoyed the relationships she gained from working with co-workers and customers.
