Jill Roberts Falvey

August 4, 1975 — June 14, 2020

Jill Roberts Falvey passed away Sunday morning, June 14, 2020, at her Tulsa home surrounded by her loving family. A Celebration of Jill's life will be held 1:00 pm Saturday, August 8, 2020 at First United Methodist Church in Ardmore, Oklahoma, with Pastor David Daniels officiating.

Jill was born August 4, 1975, to Amazing parents Darryl and Kathleen (Forrestal) Roberts. Jill also had a life-long best friend in younger sister Allison. Jill was a 1993 Honors graduate of Ardmore High School and a proud member of the 1993 Lady Tiger State Championship basketball team. Jill attended and graduated from Boston University in 1997 Cum Laude with a Secondary English Education degree. She went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Reading from Salem State College.

Jill began her stellar teaching career at Marietta High School in 1997, teaching 10th grade Language Arts. During the summer of 1998 she married Jake (Jake and Jill) Falvey and they moved to the Boston area. Her expertise at teaching continued for the next five years teaching middle school language arts in Everett, Massachusetts. Many of those former students still kept in contact with Mrs. Falvey.

In July of 2003, son Oliver was born. The following year, the Falvey's left the very loving and supportive community of Everett to return to Ardmore, Oklahoma. From 2005-2010 Jill enjoyed being the best mom in the world to son Oliver and daughter Emerson (born in 2007.) all while teaching the pre-k students at First United Methodist Church. These fabulous five years once again allowed Jill to fulfill her passion for educating children.

In 2010, Jill began teaching at Ardmore Middle School. She brought books to life and hundreds of AMS students have promised to “Stay Gold." Jill continued at AMS as a department head and Instructional coach and greatly enjoyed her daily interactions with her fellow educators. Some would even say Jill was rather serious about education.

November of 2015, Jill was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. This silent disease was in an advanced stage and the outpouring of support from students, colleagues, and the community carried her entire family through the early post diagnosis days. Since then, Jill had become an educator to more than students. For 4 ½ years her Faith, Passion, Strength, and Love which she exhibited to so many, that despite tremendous daily challenges, Jill would never stop being a teacher. Thank you, Jill.

Survived by husband, Jake; son, Oliver, and daughter Emerson; parents, Darryl and Kathy Roberts of Tulsa; sister, Allison and husband, Roger Disney and nephew, Jack Disney of Tulsa; and numerous other wonderful aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, Prayer Warriors and friends.
