Jill A. Huggins

ASHTABULA — Jill Augusta Huggins, age 64, died Tuesday, July 30, 2013, with her family at her side.

The daughter of John D. and Hildegarde (Day) Huggins, she was born on Jan. 16, 1949, in Ashtabula, Ohio. Jill was a proud graduate of Harbor High School. After graduation, she attended Ohio State University and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, majoring in Languages.

Jill was an active and faithful member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Ashtabula.

Jill taught at numerous schools during her tenure as a teacher. She traveled to Alvarado, Texas, returning to Ohio to teach at Painesville Harvey, Conneaut and St. Johns High Schools. She owned the Cookery Nook on Main Avenue in Ashtabula and began a second store in Naperville, Ill.

Jill loved to talk; she could offer opinions and advice on any subject. She was blessed with a unique sense of humor; and the ability to grow anything in her flower garden. Her Hydrangeas were beautiful.

Our memories of Jill are of her love of animals, especially her cats, her willingness to help those in need, and her love of her nieces and nephews. She was never too busy for them. They brought much happiness and joy to her life.

Jill is survived by her mother, Hildegarde Huggins; siblings, Peter D. (Susie) Huggins, Peggy J. (Richard Zidonis) Huggins, all of Ashtabula, and Judith H. (Michael) Loftus of Lisle, Ill.; and eight nieces and nephews, Andrew (Kathryn), Zachary, Kathleen, Sarah (Tim Haggerty), John( Noelle), Lee (Bryan Zelinski), Jacqueline and Stephanie; and great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews, Kaleb, Josephine, Levi and Mera.

Jill was preceded in death by her father, John David Huggins.

A Memorial Service celebrating Jill’s life will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 1st, at Trinity Presbyterian Church. 1342 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula, with the Rev. Quincy Worthington, pastor, officiating. Private burial will take place at Edgewood Cemetery.

A Calling Hour will be observed from 5 p.m. until time of service at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Church.

If desired, contributions in Jill’s name may be made to Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1342 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula, Ohio 44004.
