Jill loved all of her nieces and nephews and enjoyed being a part of their lives. Her family was very dear to her. She loved serving in the church and had many callings.

Jill was gifted in working with troubled youth and substitute taught in the Lewisville School District. Her friends and family always knew her as being cheerful and she tried to bring joy and happiness to others. In November 2011, she married Bryan Lane.

She is mourned by a large and loving family. Survivors include her husband, Bryan Lane; her parents, Jack and Rebecca Cook; siblings: Lisa (James) Udy, Brad (Faith) Cook, Jeff (Cami) Cook and her in-laws, Will and Deana Lane. In addition to nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins, Jill is also greatly mourned by her wonderful friends that continually brought joy and love to her life.

Her family thanks all those who made her feel special. The Cooks are grateful that Jill is with her Lord and Savior and He knows and loves her.

Burial will conclude in Sunset Memorial Park, Norman.
