Jill was a highly regarded Legal Assistant, employed by several law firms in Calgary.

Jill and Bill were both active members of the St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, where they were married on December 4, 1982. Jill was very involved with volunteer duties at St Stephen’s. As the Rector’s Warden, she was proud to participate in the introduction of the “Inn from the Cold” outreach program to Calgary.
