Jillian was a loving mother, and loved spending time with her family.
She was a wonderful friend, selfless, caring and loved life to the fullest. She was generous; she would give you her last dollar. She would give you shirt off her back. She always tried to see the best in everyone. She was a truly kind soul. She will be sincerely missed.
She is survived by her two daughters, Katelynn Michelle Watson and Kelly Louise Piner, both of Beaufort; husband, Christopher Piner of Beaufort; mother, Carla Sue of Virginia; three brothers, Daniel Hazlett of New Bern and Cameron Smith and Cullen Smith, both of Virginia; and many extended family and friends.
