Jill Marie Hack was born September 11, 1961, in Vancouver, BC, the middle child of Don and Helen Adams. She spent her early years growing up in various places in BC due to her father’s job. She enjoyed many trips to Saskatchewan to visit family.
In the fall of 1977, she moved to Waldheim and finished her schooling here. After that she worked at Bueckert’s General Store and then found a career with Mennonite Trust Ltd., now Amity Trust Ltd., working there for 25 years in the Wills & Estates Department. She decided it was time for a change and found pleasure in working at the Dalmeny Nursing Home. When driving in winter became a chore she found rewarding employment with Menno Homes of Sask/Christian Horizons supporting people with disabilities.
Throughout the years she enjoyed travelling with friends to many destinations including England, Italy, Pakistan, Cuba and Las Vegas. She also had a love for sports, especially baseball (“Go Blue Jays!”), golfing, curling and seeing who could catch the most and/or largest fish.
She was a wonderful sister, a caring auntie, good friend, cupcake baker and golfing buddy. And she loved to dance. Her “hugs” were legendary. Her much loved nephew, Taylor was a bright light in her life. Sleep overs at Auntie Jill’s by the fireplace and a trip to Saskatoon to the dinosaur show were just a few of the high-lights. She often was to be found at Taylor’s team sports cheering him on.
After her diagnosis in 2015, she decided she was going to continue living her life with a positive attitude, strong faith and a smile on her face. She wasn’t going to let her illness define her and was an inspiration to all of us as to how to live with those challenges with grace and dignity. Her sometimes difficult journey came to a peaceful end when she went home to be with her Lord and Savior on July 15, 2023.
It is with grateful hearts that we say “Thank you” for the love and care given to her by the doctors and nurses at the Rosthern Union Hospital and Homecare staff.
A Private Memorial and Interment of Ashes will be held at a later date.
