Born Jan 19, 1966 in Charleston WV, Jill Vickerman of Marietta, GA, was called home by our Heavenly Father on May 3, 2022.

Jill is survived by her husband of 29 years, Bart Vickerman and her father John Linkenauger, both of Marietta, GA; brother JW Linkenauger (Jean) of Silver Spring, MD and sister Jana Madera (Russ) of Mount Holly, NC. Jill is also survived by her step-children Barrett Vickerman and Rachel Vickerman, by their children Brayden Stennett and Max Vickerman and by her niece and nephews Lauren Linkenauger, Jayce Madera and Christian Madera. Jill is preceded in death by her granddaughter Bailea Harrell, her son Justin Harrell, and her mother Judith Beuchert. 

As many knew, Jill had an engaging personality and smile and could entertain all in her orbit. These were traits Jill put to good use in recent years as an award-winning newspaper advertising executive, realtor and online jewelry party host. Every day was a new adventure for Jill and those around her. In 2005, during her career with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jill achieved status on the AJC list for Salesperson of the Year having been named the recipient of the Ferguson Rood Award for Outstanding First Year Sales Achievement. In 2018 Jill decided to try her hand at real estate quickly building her listings into a thriving business. And in 2021, not one to just sit around during the pandemic, Jill began her online jewelry business entertaining any who joined Jill’s streaming sessions. Even Jill’s beloved cat, JoJo got in on the act.

Above all else, Jill is most loved and will be immensely missed as wife, daughter, sister, mother, step-mother, aunt, grandmother and most of all, cherished friend.

Please commune with us as we work through our grief in losing someone so dear to us all.

. . . A message from Bart Vickerman

Hello everyone. For those who don’t know me, I am Bart, Jill’s husband. Everyone who knew Jill knows what a wonderful human being she was. She was extremely giving and a beautiful soul. Jill had demons that she was constantly fighting. They obviously got the better of her. I would like you all to think back to the best memories of her and have you all hold onto those memories so when you think of her, that’s where your mind will take you. I was married to her for 29 years and I am grateful for all the time I had with her. It saddens me to know I will never see her again, but at least I have a lot of wonderful memories of her. I want everyone reading this to please say a short prayer for her. I know we all loved her very much and we all will miss her very much. I thank everyone for their prayers and time. I wish to share this Bible passage:

James 5: 13-15

Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned he will be forgiven.

My sister, Jill a.k.a. Cheecho, was a master at commanding a room and filling it with laughter. She was the hilarious comedian of our family, and also a hard worker who was successful in each and every endeavor. I will forever miss my Cheecho! Thankfully, we shared many memorable moments. I love you Jill!

Jill was the best sister-in-law anyone could ever ask for. God put her in my life for a reason. I missed her a lot when I moved to another state but we knew how to text and vent to each other which made our lives easier. I know where she is at and she will never have another bad day. I miss knowing that if I need to talk to her I can’t just pick up the phone, but I also know I will see her again. She will always be in my heart ❤️ Reply to this comment

I did not know Jill personally but we got to know each other through our ventures in selling jewelry. Me on one coast, her on another. She was a delight to chat with and I’m happy to have met her. I am saddened by the news of her passing. My prayers are with you and your family. Sending all positive healing vibes to comfort you at this difficult time. Reply to this comment

I didn’t get to know Jill as she was growing up, because they moved out of state when she was a baby. But I do remember her as a beautiful and sweet young lady when we got to visit over the years. When I think of Jill, I remember that cute and bubbly baby who was at my wedding when I married her Uncle Gene. She was only about 4 month old at the time. I am heartbroken over the loss of Jill, a special young lady and family member. Prayers for Jill and everyone who will miss her. Reply to this comment

I miss you Jill. You were my other “Jill.” We met online and shared our mutual love for jewelry. You were so kind and loving, I will miss our conversations so much. I feel a little empty knowing you are gone. Rest easy my friend. Reply to this comment

Aunt Jill was one of the best Aunts I could have ever asked for! Always fun to be around, loving, funny, caring, charismatic and captivating. I am very thankful to have been able to call you my Aunt and friend. And, thankful to have so many fond memories that I will hold onto and cherish always. And, I have countless things I wish I could say to you, but in the end I can only hope you knew how much I unconditionally loved you. Life will never be the same. ???? I love you Aunt Jill! Much Love, Your little Lauren XOXO Reply to this comment
