Patricia Richardson Character: Jill Taylor You'd be forgiven for only remembering Patricia Richardson as poised, understanding Jill Taylor on Home Improvement - we can't quite recall anything else she's been in either. We did some digging and it turns out she's spent the last few years appearing in various made for TV movies. She also, notably, had a brief stint on The West Wing.
Home Improvement - Jillian "Jill" Patterson-Taylor is Tim's wife and the mother of Brad, Randy and Mark. Jill is intelligent, practical and has a dry sense of humor that doesn't often fly with her family. While she is very motherly and domestic in nature, she is apparently a very bad cook, as Tim and the three boys often make remarks about her cooking. - Patricia Castle Richardson (born February 23, 1951) is an American television and film actress
