Jill Anne Broyles Abbott, age 47 of Morristown, departed this physical world May 21 on a beautiful spring day surrounded by family and friends.
Born May 2, 1976 to Eddie and Dorothy Broyles, Jill cherished her childhood. She was deeply rooted in hard work and a love for nature which she attributed to growing up on a farm in the foothills. She attended Parrottsville Elementary then Cocke County High and was a proud alumna of Tennessee Technological University where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. She began her career at Milliken in Greeneville, SC as Process Improvement Engineer and most recently worked as Product Manager for Colortech Inc. in Morristown, TN. In recent years, she enjoyed partaking in the business endeavors of her boyfriend, where together they ran The Historic Emma Jarnagin Cemetery. Though, of all achievements in life she was most proud of her two children, whom she loved beyond measure. She had an amazing ability to connect with people spiritually and was a beacon of positive energy to those around her. She loved just as deeply as she will be missed.
She was preceded in death by her mother Dorothy Broyles, maternal grandparents Lenard and Hazel Partin, and paternal grandfather Kay Edward Broyles.
She is survived by her boyfriend Slade Claiborne, children Haley and Holdan Holt, future son-in-law Kobe Hensley, father Eddie (Rhonda Mercer) Broyles, sister Heather (Ben) Lowe, brother Josh (Amber) Broyles, grandmother Charlotte Broyles, niece Brooke Broyles, nephews Waylon Lowe, Eli Broyles, and Robert Spencer, lifelong friend Jennifer Shults, boyfriend’s parents Bruce and Anne Claiborne, her entire Claiborne family, as well as several beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends.
The family will receive friends on Friday, May 26 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at First Baptist Church of Morristown. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, May 27 at Browns Chapel Church cemetery located at 1049 Browns Chapel Road, Parrottsville TN 37843 with Rev. Randall Frisbee officiating.
