  1. I am so sad to learn of Jill’s passing. She was such a good person and great friend. I will miss our conversations and her caring. I just had a bad feeling and looked online to see if there was an obituary. Seeing it was devastating. My condolences to her family and loved ones. I hope you will let me know of any service for her. I don’t get a Milwaukee paper. Thank you.

  2. So sad to hear about the passing of Mrs. Schamberger. Many memories from when she was our neighbor in Cedarburg. Wishing you all my deepest sympathies.

  3. I am so sorry that your family lost Jill.
    It is so hard to lose a loved one.
    There will always be fond memories that will
    stay with you forever.
    My very deepest sympathy to everyone
