Jackie “Toot” Pitlik, 65, of Indianola, Illinois, passed away on Monday, April 1, 2024, at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois.

She was born June 20, 1958, in Danville, Illinois, daughter of the late Charles and Christina (Nabors) Sills.

Jackie married Frank Pitlik Jr. on March 24, 1979, in Danville, Illinois, and he preceded her in death on August 22, 2004.
