Aspen, CO Colorado

On Monday, Dec. 3, 2007, Jill Anne Ball, born July 21, 1952, in Brooklyn, N.Y., passed away peacefully at her home in Longboat Key, Fla., after a year-long courageous fight with cancer.

Jill, a former resident of Aspen, will be remembered by many locals from the ’70s and ’80s. She taught at Aspen Country Day School, was a whitewater raft guide, worked at the Elks Club, and was involved in every community event. She was an Olympic div­er, an incredibly smart, fun-loving girl, a great outdoor-sports enthusiast and a super mom!

She is survived by son Robbie and hus­band Rob “XL” Ball. She will be greatly missed and forever loved by those whose lives she touched.

Memorial donations can be made to the American Cancer Society 4955 State Road 64 East Bradenton, FL 34208.
