Jill Lynne Holeman was born October 6, 1965, to Thomas Hollinback and Jeannine Burrows in Bridgeport, Connecticut. She married Terry Holeman on September 2, 1995, at Saint Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Lubbock, Texas.
Jill enjoyed her early childhood in Maine and New Hampshire with her mother, brother, sister, and loving stepfather, Joe Notturno. The Notturno family pulled up roots and made Lubbock their home in 1974. Jill graduated from Monterey High School and studied interior design at Texas Tech. She was secretary for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and then served as a beloved employee of the Covenant Health System for 25 years.
Jill lived a life full of love, exuberance, and caring for others. She brightened any room she entered and always engaged with everyone. She had a passion for hosting and entertaining and she did so with a flair unmatched by just about anyone. Her truest love, though, was her family. Even in her final months, while battling illness, she was constantly thinking of her daughters’ concerns above her own.
Jill is survived by her husband, Terry Holeman, daughters Jessica Eileen Holeman, and Megan Elizabeth Holeman; her siblings, Bill (Melissa) Notturno, and Beth (Robert) Olsen. She is also survived by her aunt, Jan (Walter) Virginski, as well as cousins, nieces, and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her natural father, Thomas Hollinback, and her parents, Jeannine and Joseph Notturno.
She died on Friday, December 16, 2022, with her family by her side.
