Jill was born and raised in Bellaire and was preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Evelyn Sherman.

Jill was a teacher and counselor at Brunswick High School for over 20 years. She took an early retirement in 1999 to become Aunt Granny the Nanny to her beloved nieces, Jo and Jessie Himes. During those years, she experienced a lifetime of joy, always giving more than she received.
