Jill was born January 19, 1983 in Marshfield to Randy Ellis and Teresa Karl. She attended Stratford High School. On August 17, 2002 Jill was united in marriage to Andrew Anderson at Good Shepard Lutheran Church in Marshfield.
Jill began her career at Ripple Behavior Solutions of Marshfield in December 2014 and quickly worked her way to become the Regional Office Manager. She was the person who welcomed every new staff into the company, she was the face to clients, licensors, and customers. Jill was one of the rare people who worked harder, cared deeper, and helped more. She has been the rock on which the Marshfield region grew.
She seemed to have limitless strength and endurance. Regardless of any of her struggles in life, she always made the best of them. Always having a witty comeback and an infectious smile. She is the center of so many lives. An exceptional mother, daughter, friend, and co-worker.
In her spare time she enjoyed listening to old music, taking road trips, and camping with family and friends. She especially enjoyed her children. Those that knew Jill best will miss her spit fire attitude, spunky personality, competitive nature, and her love of bringing up stories from the past with family and friends. She always tried putting matters into her own hands when it came to fixing things. There was nothing she couldn’t fix with a hot glue gun. She lived her life with no regrets.
Jill is lovingly survived by her mother Teresa Karl; father Randy Ellis; ex-husband Andrew Anderson of Spencer; children: Deitrik Ellis, Aliyah Anderson, Malachai Anderson, and Tahneya Anderson of Spencer; siblings: Travis Ellis of Stratford, Nicole Ellis of Marshfield, and MacGyver Ellis of Marshfield. She is further survived by her step-mother Irene Ellis of Spencer and step-siblings Stephanie Bauer, Jessica Piltz, Phillip Curtis, Jennifer Bohl and Scott Curtis and boyfriend Travis Schmitt. She will truly be missed.
Jill is preceded in death by her step-father: Dennis Geiger and grandparents Jerome Karl and Lorraine Hoefs-Stanton.
