Jill Daugherty Shipman died peacefully at Transitions Lifecare on January 12, 2019. Her amazing spirit, positive energy and caring attitude will be carried on by all fortunate to have known and loved her.
Jill was born August 26, 1965 in White Plains, New York and moved to Raleigh in 1973. As a youth she was very competitive and active in multiple sports including golf, softball, basketball, and volleyball.

Jill eventually moved to the Rex Cancer Center counseling patients and their loved ones.
