Finally, during retirement, she started Frog and Dog Pet Grooming in Paonia, CO. Jill was an avid reader, and she enjoyed watching crime dramas. After retiring to Colorado, Jill enjoyed hunting, horseback riding, and cooking. Jill was lucky in local Texas Hold em’ card games and on the Penny Slots at Casinos.
