In Memory of Jill Abernethy

Jill Abernethy

By Jennifer Ramming

“Jill and I met 14 years ago in Montford Park, wearing baby Bjorns with our second and third children’s chubby legs dangling down.  Our families were immediately fast friends who celebrated and traveled together.
I have never met a stronger, more optimistic person and devoted mother.  She glowed with laughter and hope.  Jill made everything she endeavored to do sparkle with her style and creativity, and somehow always found a way to support and encourage all those around her, including supporting OpenDoors.  In my eyes, Jill was always in color against a background of black and white.  She sparkled.”
