Jill Bellows passed away suddenly on Dec. 2 at the age of 38 years.

She is survived by her husband, Darell and children, 11-year-old Grace and twin eight-year-old boys, Michael and Ryan.

She will also lovingly be remembered and missed by her sister, Kelly Hatala of Rimbey, her parents, Susan and Dale ofFredericton, New Brunswick, her paternal grandmother Doreen Barton of New Brunswick and her father-in-law George Bellows of Ponoka.

As well as her beloved family, Jill will be very much missed by her many friends in Rimbey.

“I have known her for years and she truly was a bright ray of sunshine,” said Cali Stuart.

As with all who knew Jill, Stuart’s heart goes out to her family who will have to get through the holiday season without theirbeloved wife and mother.

She is encouraging the public to drop off Christmas gifts for the children at drop off depots set up at Main Street Bookkeeping and Games On Outdoors.

“Maybe we can help their Christmas be a little brighter,” she said. “As a kid, I can’t imagine how hard it would be to lose your mother.”
