Jill Cohen died on March 26, 2017 after battling pancreatic cancer for a year and a half. She was the beloved and devoted wife of nearly 60 years of Irwin B. Cohen; cherished mother of Cindy (Alan) Zuckerbrod, Cathy (Marc) Lasry and Cheryl (Blair) Effron; adored Nana to eleven grandchildren and two grandchildren-in-law and two great-grandchildren. She was the daughter of radio and television producer Walt Framer and actress Hannah Golding Framer and step- daughter of Evelyn Framer. She was a favorite sister, sister-in-law, aunt, special cousin and friend, and an interior designer who treated every client like a member of her family. We will keep in our hearts forever her beautiful sweet smile, her calm elegance and light touch, her encyclopedic knowledge of the American Songbook, her passion for performing and visual arts, and the way she made our family the center of her world - a world that was sunnier, gentler and lovelier for all of us because of her. In lieu of flowers, or contributions, please attend a performance or visit a museum and think of Jill.
