On Friday, April 8, 2005, the celebration of Jill Laytonís outstanding life was held to honor and remember her at Applegate Christian Fellowship in Ruch. Jill had a life-long passion for learning. The family would like to continue fulfilling her dream. A Jill Layton Memorial Scholarship Fund has been set up at Key Bank. Contributions can be made at any branch, just give Jillís name. This scholarship will help Jillís love of education continue. Superintendent Steve Boyarsky wrote, ďIt has been inspirational to see the compassion and support SOESD employees have given to each other and Jillís family. Jillís unfortunate death reminds us of our own mortality and inspires us to continue working as Jill would want us to, for the service of educators and students in our region. Jillís husband Tim has been very grateful for the kind words, visits, and financial information provided him at this difficult time. I am proud to work for an organization that has such compassionate and caring employees.Ē Jill passed away unexpectedly Friday, March 25, 2005 at Providence Medical Center. She was born October 17, 1961 in Livingston, Montana to John Bigelow of Condon, Oregon and Janet Regalia of Eugene. Raised in the Rogue Valley area, Jill graduated from Grants Pass High School in 1979. After Jill married her best friend, Timothy Layton, at Cove Palisades State Park, Lake Billy Chinook on September 24, 1989, they moved to Alameda, California where Tim completed his naval career. Together they lived a life of volunteerism. At Timís side, Jill was the president of the Condon Lady Elks Association. Many lives benefited from their service as volunteer emergency medical technicians. Jill never turned down an opportunity in service of others. Jill was an outstanding, dedicated educator. Jill attended Lewis and Clark College where she earned her BS in June 1983. She was a language arts/drama teacher before pursuing an educational administrative license and a Master of Education degree from George Fox University in 2000. Administratively, Jill positively impacted as a K-12 principal, a curriculum coordinator, and most recently, a literacy specialist at the Southern Oregon Education Service District. Jill was in her last year of her doctorate at George Fox University. Some go into teaching because itís a job. Jill went into teaching to make a difference and the lives she touched have been changed forever. All who knew Jill, will remember twinkling eyes, laughter, and a good joke at the right moment. Jill leaves behind her husband, Tim Layton of Medford; step-daughter, Stephanie Layton-Cudahy, and grandson, Ethan of Rogue River; father, John Bigelow of Condon; mother, Janet Regalia of Eugene; and brother, Jason Bigelow.
