Hilleshiem Memorial

With the permission of the family, we have created this memorial to help with the funeral and ongoing expenses for Sam, Rena and Luke after the loss of their loving wife and mother, Jill.  Jill was an amazing woman with a heart of gold and spent her entire career teaching special education students and volunteering with many organizations throughout the community.  With the loss of her income, their family cannot afford even the funeral costs, much less their day-to-day expenses.  Though none of us can solve that alone, we are hoping that as a community, we can come together to help them in their time of need.  Anything helps and we thank you in advance for considering a donation.
