One of Jill's earliest appearances in cabaret following the passing of her husband Don, when she resumed her singing career, took place at venue with the provocative name of Once Upon a Stove.  We have no program or other memorabilia dating from the engagement except for a large poster promoting Jill's appearance.  It featured this wonderful ink sketch of Jill, which clearly captures the essence of Jill's beauty when in her mid-30's during the early 1970's.
