Michael Jill Olinger, 70, loving mother of two and adoring grandmother of three, passed away on Friday Jan 21, 2022.

Jill was born October 5, 1951 in Midland, Texas. She was the daughter of the late Robert K Smith Jr and Virginia Dale Smith.

In 1970, she moved to the Fox River Valley and started raising her children in the St. Charles community. Jill was employed at Harris Bank for 25 before retiring. Jill was absolutely thrilled to become a Grammy for the first time in 2010. She could never get enough of her grandbabies.

Jill loved reading, music, playing cards and having a good laugh over coffee and baileys with friends. She will be remembered as selfless, compassionate, a loving and devoted mother who constantly supported her girls, even when times were tough. She had a quiet strength.

Survivors include daughters Milisa and husband Jim Johnson of Leesburg, Virginia, Stephanie Henigan and husband Jeff Larson of Frisco, Texas and grandchildren, Grace Johnson, Lane Larson and Nash Larson, siblings Gay Reed of Lubbock, Texas, Kim and wife Missy Smith of Quanah, Texas, Robin Smith of Lubbock, Texas and many dear neices and nephews.

The family would like to thank her many doctors and treasured friends for their love, support and laughs during these past few months.

"I've had the pleasure of knowing Jill for about 10 years now. I lovingly called her "Mama Jill". She never missed a birthday, holiday or a day she knew was special to me, to send me a text. She was a great lady and I know she will be sorely missed."

Sondra Williams from Oakland , CA

"My prayers and love are with you all during this time of bereavement. May God comfort your hearts and wrap you in His love."

Terry & Carol Saner from Vero Beach, AK

"Danny & Jill Henagan stood up for Carol & I when we got married oh so long ago. We were all dear friends. We are so sad to hear of this news. I knew both of Jill's children very well. This has made Carol & I extremely disheartened. Any of our old friends can contact me on Facebook. We are changed."
