    I am so sorry to hear of Jill’s passing. I taught with her for many years at Lawrenceville and Creekland and recently saw her at one of our monthly retiree luncheons. She was a sweet, fun loving person. My prayers for peace and comfort go out to her entire family.

    Jill was a buoyant personality at both Lawrenceville Middle and Creekland. She had a wry smile and an essence that filled the room. She was respected by her colleagues and adored by her students. Above all, Jill loved her children deeply. My thoughts and prayers go with Joey and Jenny.

    I am truly saddened by the news of the loss of My wonderful teacher and friend ….I thought the world of Mrs Lawler and have always been so proud to tell others about what she meant to me through her kindness and caring as a teacher who knew her craft and practiced it , to the benefit of all of us kids at Lawrenceville Middle School . I don’t sling the word teacher around freely …but she exemplified that title and there are many many former students who would justify her through the benefits of having her as a teacher .God bless the family as they go through this time , but know she was well loved and appreciated by many former students .
