Obituary of Jill W McGrath
Jill W. McGrath, age 86, of St. Petersburg, Florida and Grand Lake Stream, Maine, finally ran out of energy and left this earth on January 14, 2023. She hopes that God will remember her devoted efforts in a life of volunteer service.
She leaves her husband Ed, whom she cherished as the ultimate gift of God's love; her most beloved sister Betsie Scott; a sister in Australia; five children, 8 granddaughters; a great-grand-daughter; five stepchildren; nine beloved first cousins; 4 nephews, 2 nieces; Jill's lifetime of dogs and cats (her "fur children"); her wonderfully sustaining friends, all kept eternally in her heart.
Jill, a Mayflower descendant, graduated from University of Vermont with two degrees, one in Nursing, and one in English Literature. They provided her with professions in areas in which she thrived. She was a past member of the Junior League and the Stuart Society.
Jill requested that there be no public service. Her wish was that any memorial donations be made to The Downeast Lakes Land Trust (4 Water St. Grand Lake Stream, Maine 04668); or the Wounded Warrior Project (wondedwarriorproject.org); or Tampa Bay SPCA, 9099 130th Ave., N., Largo, FL 33773
