Elizabeth grew up in Washington DC with her father and mother, Charles and Mary Sincell and her brother John. She moved to this area in 1969 with her Dear husband Emery and her mother Mary. She so love the rural area and the friendly atmosphere.
Elizabeth was known as, (Jill) by her friends and family. She was interested in Cooking. Jill took French cooking lessons. She and Emery enjoyed watching cooking shows on PBS television.
Gardening was fun for her but not nearly as fun as riding her John Deere tractor! She loved her cats. Jill loved to spend time at the ocean. Her daughter Michelle took as often as possible.
Jill loved her “Fairfield”. Jill was delighted that Fairfield was added to the historical society‘s older homes listings as it was built in 1856. She enjoyed putting Fairfield on the historical homes of the area tour. Jill even donated items from Fairfield to the Sandy Spring Museum as did owners before her.
Jill was part of the St Luke’s family for many years as was her mother Mary Sincell. She made many deep and meaningful friendships that she treasured and thought about often.
Jill loved her children, Michelle and Michael. She said that she thanked God for them every Sunday! She knew that they were her true blessings along with their father Emery.
Jill had Emery’s memorial service at St Luke’s in 1991 and they both will be interred there together at a later date.
