Jill was my step-mother.  I have known her since I was a little girl.  Her first husband, Dick and my dad worked together at Overmeyer Mold Corp.  She was married to my dad, Richard "Dub" Yost for many years.  Jill was always very happy & positive. She made my Dad very happy for all the years they were together.  I am so thankful my dad was with her, right up til the day he passed.  She was a wonderful person and I know she is resting in the Lord's sweet arms, with no more pain or suffering.
