Jill Ellyn Felling (Fujawa), 59, passed peacefully on April 14, 2021 at her family home in Terre Haute, IN. Born on June 9, 1961, Jill was happily married on May 31, 1986 at her future family home in Terre Haute to her loving husband, Darrell.
Jill was survived by her husband, Darrell, son and daughters Eddie and Amy (Walter) daughter, Lillian, Emily and Brian Long, Heather and Shawn Brady, children Nick and Hillary, and Amy and Wayne Laswell, children, Molly and Logan (Brooke). Other surviving family include her parents, Gilbert and Annette (Adamski), brothers and sisters, Julie (Art), Jeff (Tiffany) and Jim (Elizabeth), nieces and nephews, Lucas, Carter, Savannah, Sarah, Jessica, Matthew and Tyler, and great-grandchildren, Sebastian, Finley, Maylee and Bowen. Jill was preceded in death by her loving nephews, Cayden Fujawa and J.C. Wright.
Jill worked her entire career as manager, paralegal and overall mastermind of her husband and son's legal practice. Jill's ability to work tirelessly at the law office, at home and at the family outfitting business, while remaining a devoted and attentive wife and mother will always be remembered. Throughout her life Jill became, and remained, a mother to many and she was proud to have raised numerous children other than those listed here.
Jill's home cooking and contagious laugh became famous among friends and family alike and Jill was fond of her Polish ancestry to a degree that it would be almost impossible for new acquaintances to ignore. Her "healthy" "Polish" comfort food was always of cookbook quality and nothing made her happier than filling the bellies of those around her - although table manners were always strictly enforced. Also, although unknown to many, Jill was an excellent poet. One of her most coveted verses, from the book Poland, and a testament to what she held dear was: Home! The fields are green, The woods are clean, My soul serene...
A private celebration of life with family was held and a private Catholic service will be held by family per Jill's wishes. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation in Jill's honor to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
