Sandra J. Gill (Jackson) brought joy to the late Charley J. Jackson and Virginia B. Jackson (Haskins) on January 14, 1947, in Lexington, Kentucky. Her parents relocated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the early 1950s. “Sandy,” which everyone lovingly called her, cherished her family and friends. She was always there to give love, wisdom, and strength. Beating around the bush was never her style, she always told it like it was because she cared and wanted the best for you. Sandy enjoyed spending time and laughing with her family, and she was a very proud mom and grandmother.

Sandy was educated in the Pittsburgh Public School system. After graduating from Westinghouse High School, she attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She would complete her Bachelor’s degree in business with a focus on accounting at Marywood College.

Sandy had a variety of career accomplishments ranging from teaching, loan disbursements, and payroll specialist/accounting. As a young African American woman, she was powerful and highly respected by colleagues, community members, and local politicians. Sandy’s leadership skills were very strong and in her presence business was taken care of. She took pride in doing what was right and was always about the bottom line.

Sandy met and married Freddy Gill also of Lexington, Kentucky in August 1968. To that union was born their loving son Timothy D. Gill Sr. She was so proud of her son and would do anything for him. She made sure she raised a strong man, and prepared him to be successful with everything he touched.

Sandy loved being a grandmother, she was affectionately called Maw and Memaw. They would spend time together having parties, shopping, baking, watching their favorite shows, and having girl-time fun putting on makeup. Whatever they wanted, she made sure they had it.

Sandy is preceded in death by parents Charley and Virginia Jackson, Charlesetta Gates (Jackson) sister, and brother, Charley Jackson Jr.

Sandy leaves to mourn her loss: son Timothy Gill Sr. (Danielle) of Pittsburgh, PA, sister Wanda Jackson, of Upper Marlborough, MD, brother Rodney Jackson (Eugenia) of Pittsburgh, PA, and brother Keith Jackson (Lisa) of Pittsburgh; Three grandchildren, Timothy Gill Jr., Kiara Gill, and Timiya Gill; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to Tim, Wanda, Rodney and Keith and their families. We had such fun as young women starting our families, playing cards, family outings, and Kentucky Derby Day! I will lift each of you in prayer. I have tried to get in touch. I left my number with the Coston Funeral Home office.

Sandy was a dear childhood friend and neighbor. As it happens, life got in the way and we lost touch with each other. However, I never stopped remembering the fun and exciting times we shared.
My deepest condolences to the Jackson Gill families. God Bless you all.
Sybil Foster Thompson and James Thompson
