Stephanie Jill Devall
On July 24, 2020 Jill peacefully left her earthly body and joined the Lord at 62 years of age. She passed away with family and close friends at her side surrounded by love and affection after a lifelong courageous battle of intense complications from a rare congenital heart defect. Surviving numerous open heart surgeries, a stroke, and breast cancer, she was a real life medical miracle and anyone in the medical field was fascinated by her determination to live. She was the definition of perseverance. She was loving, caring, genuine, and one of a kind. Witty and funny, she was quite spunky and known for her tell it like it is personality. She never met a stranger and to know her was to love her. Her door was always open and many looked to her for advice and comfort. She enjoyed traveling and cooking but her greatest joy in life was treasuring every moment spent with family and friends. She chose her friends wisely, and when she did they were friends for life. She is survived by her loving, loyal, and dedicated husband Stephen Devall, son Sage Brignac and partner Kerri, his children Dakota, Breleigh, and Kaslyn, son David Matthew Iles and partner Maggie, daughter Megan Holley and husband Shane, and their children Braysen, Brooks, and Paisley, sister Susan Richard and husband Michael, her twin brother Jack Selig, mother Dorothy Selig, and numerous nieces and nephews.
