Jill was predeceased by her father, Wallace Hiebert.


Jill was born February 10, 1968, in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, where she spent most of her life before moving to Alberta. During her time in Alberta, she lived in Sylvan Lake, Fort McMurray, and Calgary. Jill enjoyed playing basketball, baseball, and competing in track and field.
