Jillian was born on May 6, 1987 to Kevin and Renee (Twitty) Lorenz in San Diego, California. Jillian and her family moved throughout the United States until eventually planting their roots in Bismarck. She attended Miller Elementary, Simile Middle School and Century High School, where she was a member of the choir. Following her graduation in 2005, she attended the Hair Academy. While in Bismarck, she worked at Glance Salon. In 2010, Jillian moved to Fargo and continued to work as a hair stylist. While in Fargo, she received training and specialized as an eyelash artist. She currently worked at the Tranquility Spa in Fargo. She will be deeply missed by her clients, including her extended family who wouldn’t miss a chance to sit in her chair.
She was a proud Yorkie dog mom to Midger and Trooper. Just like her father and sisters, she was a talented singer and could be found by the nearest karaoke machine, singing one of her favorites. Jillian loved the sun and spent many days soaking up the sunshine at her parent’s pool or in Florida. She was creative and let her artistic side show in not only her work, but also in the clothes she wore. She had a great sense of humor and made everyone laugh, her smile and energetic personality lit up any room she was in.
Jillian was a baptized member of First Evangelical Free Church. She enjoyed attending Awana and Youth Group with the church.
Jillian is survived by her parents, Renee and Kevin Lorenz; sisters, Megan (Joe) Larson, Bismarck, and Sarah (Clifton) Erickson, Bismarck; niece and nephew, Edyn and Abel; paternal grandparents, Carol and Francis Lorenz, Langdon; special friend, John Seifert, Fargo; fur babies, Midger and Trooper; many aunts, uncles and cousins. A special thank you to her friend Barry Miller, who helped her along her journey.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, James and Helen Twitty.
