Jill Marlene Klein
Ms. Jill Marlene Klein, 44 of Cedarville, Michigan formerly of Atlanta, died tragically on November 3, 2018. She was born in Mt. Clemens, Michigan on February 20, 1974 to the late, James and Marilyn (Brennan) Allen. Jill graduated from Atlanta High School in 1992 and served her country in the United States Army National Guard after graduation. She worked for Moran Ironworks for ten years and most recently for Carmeuse Lime and Stone in Cedarville where she worked as a supervisor.
Jill was a very creative person and enjoyed welding, drawing, and making glass sculptures. She was very "hands on" and loved getting her hands dirty. She loved dogs, but most importantly, she loved her two boys. Her greatest pride was being a mother. Jill had a beautiful spirit with a smile that could light up a room. She will be dearly missed by everyone that was blessed to have known her.
She is survived by her sons, Vernon and James; sisters, Jody (Brandon) Wehner of Howell; Jamie (Steven) Faulkner of Brighton; brother, James Allen of Novi; aunt, Barb (Fred) Porrett of Alpena; cousin, Michelle (Colin) Appleby of Derby, England; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Marilyn Allen.
There will be a visitation service for Jill on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Green Funeral Home; Atlanta. A short prayer service will be held at 8:00 PM. In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to Atlanta Schools.
