Jill Wujcik

Obituary of Jill Adams Wujcik

After a brave but difficult fight against a rare form of cervical cancer, Dallas resident Jill Wujcik, 36, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on February 7, 2020. Jill was born in Luzerne, and attended Sacred Heart Elementary School and graduated from Wyoming Valley West, where she lettered in volleyball. Jill went on to Bloomsburg University and then earned her Masters in Education from Wilkes University in 2014. Professionally, she taught both special education and general education for the Wilkes-Barre Area School District. In 2011 and thanks to a police escort, Jill navigated the flooding of Tropical Storm Lee to welcome two beautiful daughters, Lily and Alivia. Jill was a devoted mom. She threw impromptu dance parties, sang every night at bedtime, and planned the best birthday celebrations. She knew how to work hard sweating at boot camp classes, taking on extra duties to support her students or helping on weekends at the Van Scoy Diamond Mine, or VSDM as she called it. And she knew how to have fun hosting backyard barbecues, sitting on the deck at III Guys, going to the beach or the lake always surrounded by friends. Jill had a galaxy of friends. She was naturally confident and outgoing. Her wide smile put everyone she met at ease. Jill loved Jessica Simpson, 90210, Lifetime movies, gossip, Full House, New Kids on the Block, The Phillies, the Eagles, vacuuming, volleyball and vacations. She leaned into every moment she had to live fully and happily. Along with her children, Alivia and Lily, Jill leaves behind her partner, Brandon Wills; parents, Gina and Robert Adams; brother Robert Adams Jr and partner, Jenny Wiegert; grandmother Nancy Adams; co-parent Andy Wujcik; many aunts, uncles, and cousins; and that galaxy of friends. Jill joins Mark Sr., Muriel, Mark Jr., Harold and Gig, to relax on the beach where the sun is always shining and the ice cream is endless. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday at 11:00 a.m. in Holy Family Parish, Bennett Street, Luzerne. Friends may call Monday from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Betz-Jastremski Funeral Home, 568 Bennet Street, Luzerne.
