Obituary for Jill Jackett (Skivington)
Jill Elizabeth Jackett
October 21, 1979-November 30, 2017
Predeceased by her grandparents Jane and George Skivington and Shirley and Victor DiStefano, uncle Mark DiStefano. She is survived by her loving husband Shawn Jackett and cherished dogs Darla and Duncan, parents Lynne and Michael Skivington, brother Steven (Ashley Dolan), several adoring aunts, uncles and cousins. Kind, empathic, witty, feisty, with great gusto, and the highest level of care, Jill positively touched the lives of many. Jill had a zest for life like no other! Whether it was running a marathon or local race, teaching a piece of literature to her high school students, directing a musical production, climbing an Adirondack mountain, singing for the world to hear, paddling the Adirondack Canoe Classic (The ninety miler), cooking fish, she immersed herself completely. There could be no better wife, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend, or teacher!!
A celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday December 6th in the education building at Genesee Country Village,1410 Flint Hill Road in Mumford from 2pm to 5 pm.
In lieu of flowers, send donations to the Wheatland-Chili Drama Club and Verona Street Animal Hospital.
