Jill Ann Reeves

February 1, 1960 — June 17, 2024

Jill Ann Reeves, age 64, passed away surrounded by loved ones, on June 17th of 2024.

Jill was preceded in death by her late husband Donald Lee Reeves, and her parents, James and Jolene Gregory.

She is survived by her partner Randy Rodgers, and Randy’s cousin Lois Wright, her son Charles and his family, her daughter Samantha (Miranda) Ford, grandsons Charlie and Kade Reeves, sisters Kimberly Gregory, Stacey Singerman, Leslee Colby, brother-in-law Mike Huddleson, her Aunt Judy Patterson, nieces and nephews Wesley (Serena, Elijah, Adalaya) Huddleson, Chase Huddleson, Alayna (Chris) Walker, Tyara (Chandler, Valkyrie) Pearson, Nathaniel (Gabby, Barry, Annalyn) Reeves, Cole(Brandelyn) Reeves and Ali Reeves.

Jill was born in Smyrna, Tennessee, on February 1st 1960 to Jolene and James Gregory. She graduated from Miami Trace High School in 1978. She went on to Southern State Community College to pursue a degree in Special Education. Jill gave her time and energy to multiple careers in her life, but nothing was as special to her as her crafts and creations. This brought her countless moments of joy. She made and sold thousands of handmade pieces and met so many wonderful people along that journey. Her art was her love language. If you have one of her blankets, please remember that. She was truly was an artist.

Jill met Donald Lee Reeves when she was babysitting his younger brothers. After 2 years of dating, they were married on December 13th (Friday) of 1983. Jill and Don welcomed their son Charles on November 29th, 1986. They welcomed their daughter Samantha on May 16th, 1991. Don was a long-haul truck driver, so they traveled together often. Jill and Don made and sold crafts together for 4 years, which they loved. Donald Lee Reeves passed away on June 25th, 2007.

The loss of her husband was a heavy burden for a long time. In the spring of 2019, while grocery shopping, she ran into Randy Rodgers. Many years ago, Jill (at age 19) and her mother went into the local feed store to get supplies for their animals. Randy (age 25) was the employee that helped them. As Jill and her mother left, she told Jolene “I’m going to get a date with him,” And she did. Now they’ve been given a chance to have more time, and they took it. Their first date to Red Lobster was the start of many trips for dinner, adventures and sweet memories. Along with Randy, Jill gained a strong friendship with his cousin Lois Wright, who she often commented was much more like a sister-in-law. Jill was very loved, supported and cared for by Randy. This was a gift in Jill’s life.

Jill enjoyed repurposing, creating, gardening, crocheting, sewing and so much more. She loved adventures and things to look forward to. She treasured her sisters Kim, Stacey and Leslee. Through all of the obstacles life threw at them, they still had each other. She loved her sisters beyond words. She had some of the most kind friends in Vicki and Kathy, and so many others. Jill loved her children and grandchildren so much. She was generous, thoughtful and loving. She had a deep empathy for others. She will be very missed. We love you, Mom.
