Jillian Nicole Pfifer, 23, was born August 25, 1998 in St. Petersburg, FL and passed away Saturday, March 26, 2022 in Louisville, KY.
She was a kind, gentle person with an infectious laugh. She was a graduate of Mercy High School and attended Western Kentucky University. Jillian was an avid reader, a beautiful writer and carried the grace and wisdom of an old soul. She fiercely loved her family, friends and animals. She was the first to offer support and comfort during hard times and would shine when her loved ones needed encouragement. The greatest joy of her life was her father; Jay and Jillian shared a bond like no other. She was an amazing “aunt” and mentor and taught those around her priceless lessons in unconditional love. Our hearts are broken to have this shocking loss of someone so young and precious.
In addition to her father, Jay Pfifer, she is survived by her step mother, Jennifer Coleman Pfifer; birth mother, Laura Laughlin Pfifer; grandparents, Harold & Joreen Pfifer and Toni Wiman; uncles, Stephen Pfifer, Mike Pearcy, Aaron Coleman (Jessica) and Kevin Hess; and aunt, Ashley Turner.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Donna Klucarits, Margaret Jane Coleman, Doug Coleman and Roger Laughlin.
