Jill Marie Hebert
January 7, 1955 – January 19, 2018
Jill Marie Hebert, a native and lifelong resident of Franklin, passed away at her home surrounded by her loved ones on Friday, January 19, 2018, at the age of 63 following a long and hard fought battle with cancer. Jill was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many, who had a smile that could light up the darkest of days. A devout Catholic and a woman of deep faith in the Lord, Jill was an active member of the Church of the Assumption in Franklin, the Catholic Daughters – Court Assumption, and the Good Samaritans Bereavement Group, as well as a supporter of St. John Elementary and Hanson Memorial High School. She had a love of the outdoors, enjoying working in her yard, going for walks, and simply taking in the wonders of nature. Her greatest passion in life though was her family whom she deeply loved, especially her children and grandchildren. She will be deeply missed but her memory will continue to live on in all who knew and loved her.

Hebert; her two sons, Eric Scott Mire and his wife Neka and Denny Paul Mire and his wife Brandi; four daughters, Seaneen Hebert, Jenee Leger and her husband Chris, Paige Hebert, and Mackenzie Hebert; five siblings, Sandra Lee Hebert, Michel “Skip” Hebert Jr. and his wife Patty, Robert Lewis “Bob” Hebert, Alan Timothy “Tim” Hebert and his wife Cindy, and William “Billy” Hebert; 13 grandchildren, Julian Sage Mire, Razel Elizabeth Mire, Draven Wayne Mire, Gabrielle Marie Mire, Caden Paul Mire, Davin John Mire, Aubrey Lynn Mire, Julian Paul Melancon, Cullen Perry Melancon, Annelise Amelia Hebert, Isabelle Grace Leger, Londyn Jolie Leger, and Karmyn Isabelle Pierre.
