Dorotha Emily Diehlman Keene b.20Jun1912 Findlay Ohio d. 9May2012 Seattle, Washington

Dorotha Emily Diehlman Keene lapsed peacefully into eternal sleep on May 9th, 2012, just several weeks shy of her 100th birthday. She was born in Findlay, Ohio on 6/20/1912 to Gladys and Clarence Diehlman. After graduating from high school, Dottie attended Ohio Wesleyan University majoring in education and subsequently completing requirements for her Bachelor of Science Degree. From there, she went on to obtain a Masters Degree in education from the University of Wisconsin. Her academic achievements included admission to Delta Kappa Gamma, a professional honorary society of women educators. Throughout her adult life, she served that organization in a variety of different administrative capacities.
Dottie was an avid sportsperson. Despite growing up in an era of limited athletic opportunities for women, she participated and excelled in a wide range of sporting endeavors, including basketball, golf, swimming and tennis. Even in her eighties, it was not unusual to witness her volleying a tennis ball or stalking a golf ball at Geenlake Pitch and Putt. Her many interests also included music. She enjoyed "tickling the ivories" and played an adequate piano but relished drawing a bow across the strings of her beloved cello above all else. For many years, she was able to express her attachment to that instrument as a regular performer in the Seattle Senior Orchestra.
Dottie was a bonifide member of that ever-dwinding race known as the "Greatest Generation". It is comprised of people who have always felt immense pride in being citizens of the greatest nation on Earth despite living through the grinding hardships of the Great Depression. They risked and many forfeited their lives stamping out tyranny and oppression in two World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. It was they who created the precursory conditions that ultimately spawned today's technological revolution. We, the progeny of that generation, will forever be indebted to those forebearers for the prosperity and freedoms we take for granted today.
Dottie was preceded in death by her loving husband of 41 years, Leslie Keene. For over a decade and a half following her marriage in 1947, she eschewed the opportunity to continue an exemplary career as an educator in favor of being a stay-at-home mom to her two children, Karen Driver and David Keene. They and their families will sorely miss Grandma's tireless good humor, adventurous spirit and unflagging compassion for her fellow man.

Emil Dihlmann b. 6Sep1916 d. 27Jun2013

SHUTESBURY - Emil Dihlmann died Thursday, June 27, 2013, at the Soldiers Home in Holyoke.
Emil was born Sept. 6, 1916, in Shutesbury. The fifth of eight children, he was the son of Fannia (Rehorka) and Hermann Dihlmann.
He attended the one-room schoolhouse in Shutesbury and graduated from Amherst Regional High School.
His first job was driving a 12 ton truck during the construction of the Quabbin Reservoir. He then worked for the Threadwell Tap & Die in Greenfield, before the start of the war.
Emil was a World War II veteran and served in the Army Air Corps 350th Bombardment Squadron as a radio operator on a B-17 bomber based in Alconbury, England. He flew many missions over Europe.
After the war he settled in Greenfield where he met his wife Leona (Beaulac) who died in 1969. They had three children, Robert, Diane and Emily.
Emil was a self-employed carpenter and, as well as building four houses, he also worked for several general contractors in the area, including working on homes in Historic Deerfield. He also was a carpentry teacher for many years at Greenfield Vocational High School and Arms Academy in Shelburne Falls.
Later, he moved back to Shutesbury where he lived with his second wife Dorothy Bradley and his adopted daughter Andrea. During this period in his life, Emil was employed at the University of Massachusetts. He worked in the physical plant as a carpenter and estimator. He retired from the University at the age of 70.
After retiring, he decided to sit back, not have a daily schedule, and do the things that interested him and gave him pleasure; spending time with his children, fishing, working on carpentry projects and other projects that sparked his curiosity.

Emil Dihlmann b. d.27Jun2013

RAF ALCONBURY, United Kingdom - For many members of the military, there is that one base or one assignment you really enjoy or will remember for the rest of your life - for retired Tech. Sgt. Emil Dihlmann, that place was in the United Kingdom at RAF Alconbury.
Dihlmann enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps when he was 25 years old and served as a radio operator on the B-17 Flying Fortress with the 350th Bombardment Squadron, under the VIII Bomber Command and Eighth Air Force, from 1943 to 1945. His on-plane duties included working transmitting and receiving equipment in the B-17, making minor repairs and Emil Dihlmannoperating the 50-caliber machine gun while in combat.
"He didn't really start talking about his experiences in the war until the 1990s," said Emily Lewney, Dihlmann's daughter, who currently lives in Cambridge, U.K. "I think probably like lots of soldiers, he must have felt it really painful for him to talk about when he came back. He wasn't a man that communicated his feelings, but then I don't think lots of men of that generation probably did, but then they also probably had a lot that they were carrying, as well.
"I watched 'Memphis Belle' one day with my husband Richard and until then I didn't really realize just how hard it must have been to be in a war, what military members put themselves through and the commitment they give to their country; then I realized dad had been through that." said Lewney. "So, I finally began asking him questions and I think by then he was ready to start talking a little bit about some of the stories - not necessarily about the all of the hard ones, but he spoke with such great calmness about his time in England and at RAF Alconbury. He told lots of funny stories, like going into London and being told there was a Piccadilly Circus there and looking for the circus and having a policeman say, 'You're standing in it, Mate!'"
Dihlmann, who was the fifth of seven children, passed away June 27 at the soldier's home in Holyoke, Mass.
"We were just so impressed with the care dad had received there and how they treated him like he was part of the family and then I started to realize that this had been such an important part of dad's life," said Lewney. "So, when we had the memorial service in August, I asked if I could take some of dad's ashes back to England and bring them to RAF Alconbury where he had been based during World War II."
On Oct. 26, Lewney and her husband, their children, Sarah and Chris, and Chris' wife, Emma, visited RAF Alconbury to spread some of Dihlmann's ashes at the base that had meant so much to her father.
"He really loved his time at RAF Alconbury," said Lewney. "I thought it would be nice to bring back some of his ashes to the place that had been such an important part of his life and that probably helped mold a lot of whom he was and who he became in his adult life. It was also a chance for our son, who wasn't able to attend the funeral to feel like he had, had a way to say goodbye to his grandfather as well."
The service was held at the base flagpoles where Capt. Tim Warf, 423rd Air Base Group chaplain, said a prayer under the flags that were flying at half-staff in honor of Dihlmann. The family then, one by one, walked to the base of the flagpoles, released some of the ashes and paused to reflect on the moment.
"We were all so touched with the service," said Lewney. "It really meant a lot to us to have that service with the chaplain and commander; we were really bowled over with the flags being at half-staff on behalf of our dad. We were just so touched by it all, the service, the prayers and it has meant an awful, awful lot to us. It sort of brought back dad's memory to us in a very special way."

Robert (Bob) John Dillman, 73, of Lewes, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes. He was born June 30, 1941, in Brooklyn, N.Y., son of the late George and Emma (Drago) Dillman.
Robert Dillman, President East Stroudsburg UniversityMr. Dillman received his PhD from Clark University in Massachusetts, a master's degree from Penn State University and his undergraduate degree from New Paltz State University of New York.
He began an extensive career in education in 1963. Bob's first position was as a high school teacher in the Connetquot Long Island School District. He then moved to Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts as a geography and earth science professor, and subsequently became vice president of academic affairs and acting president there. His career would then turn to Fairmont State University in Fairmont, W.Va. where he served as president. Bob concluded his academic career at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania where he served as president for 16 years. What distinguished Bob's career as an educator was the fact that he never lost sight of his primary motivation: providing students with the best environment and education to prepare them for life. Even when he served as university president, he continued to teach classes at the undergraduate level. He then retired from East Stroudsburg University and relocated to the Lewes area.
Even in retirement, Bob's motivation to serve his community carried on. He was an active member of the Lehigh Valley Hospital board, PAASHE Science Center Wallops Island, and the Lewes Planning Commission.
Bob's commitment to his profession was only exceeded by his love and dedication to his family and friends. He was a husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and friend without par. His life was anchored in his strong religious faith, impeccable integrity, honesty, enthusiasm for life, and commitment to go above and beyond to help those in need. An exceptional athlete in his youth, playing basketball, baseball and soccer for New Paltz State University, he maintained a regimen of daily fitness throughout life. Simply put, Bob was a consummate gentleman who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Bob is survived by his loving bride of over 50 years, Roseann (Morris); four children, Deirdre and her husband John Buckley of Wilmington, John Dillman and his wife Melissa of Gilbert, Ariz., Siobhan and her husband Mark Tarley of Morgantown, W.Va. and James Dillman and his wife Shannon of Lyon, France; 10 grandchildren; and one brother, James and his wife Loretta of Litchfield, Conn.

Brandon Dillman b. d. 28Aug2015 Redding, CA

REDDING, Calif. - On Friday afternoon, 28-year-old Brandon Dillman died in a motorcycle accident at Churn Creek Road and Hartnell Avenue. His mother, Kelley McMichael, said her son was just heading to the store to pick up muffins and milk for the family and was going to be back in 10 minutes. "And I'm waiting and I'm waiting and I started calling his cellphone and texting his phone, and it ended up an hour and a half later," she explained. "In my gut, I knew something was wrong." McMichael called the hospital and was told the news, her son was being taken to the coroner's office. "It's devastating, no parent should ever have to go through this," McMichael explained. "It's the worst pain I've ever been through and it makes you feel like you are going to die of a broken heart." Brian Dillman, Brandon Dillman's older brother, said he was in shock and got sick when he found out. "It was a friend that told me Brandon's been in a motorcycle wreck and he's at the coroner's office. I said, you mean the hospital, and she said no the coroner's office and I just got weak and dropped my phone on the floor, and pretty much fell down and started crying," Brian Dillman said. Dillman's wife, Alicia Eller-Dillman, was in North Dakota when she heard the news. She said he left behind three sons, all under the age of 10. "It breaks my heart they won't be able to have their daddy back," she stated. Dillman mentioned in the last few days he has gone to the area his brother was killed. "I just sat out on the curb... I'm just trying to digest it all I guess... I just don't know why, why did it have to happen," Dillman explained. On Sunday, family and friends held a vigil to remember a loving father, son, and brother. "It's amazing, it was amazing.... It was posted on there, wasn't even a day that people were able to find our about it, it was a good turn out," Dillman said. "I didn't want to say good by like this, but we are going to watch over your kids and we are going to take care of your boys all of us," McMichael said. Copyright 2015 by All rights reserved.

Patricia Dillman b. d. 10Jun2017 Lehigh Valley Hospital

Patricia Dillman, who co-founded Jenn's House so families of hospital patients could have an affordable and comfortable place to stay, died Saturday. She was 69.
Dillman and her husband Richard founded Jenn's House in memory of their daughter, Jennifer, who was fatally injured in a 1991 bus accident as she traveled to a baton twirling competition.
They stayed at a Ronald McDonald House in Hershey while Jennifer, a Salisbury High School student, was hospitalized at Hershey Medical Center. She succumbed to her injuries after nine days.
The Patricia and Richard Dillman Dillmans were devastated by their daughter's death, but also touched by the kindness and hospitality they received at Ronald McDonald House. The experience inspired them to provide a similar service in the Lehigh Valley.
The first Jenn's House opened in 1998 on Cedar Crest Boulevard in Upper Milford Township, mainly serving clients from Lehigh Valley Hospital. In 2010, the Dillmans opened a second facility in Fountain Hill to serve St. Luke's Hospital. The sites have also welcomed families with patients at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital and other facilities.
Richard Dillman said his wife had been fighting cancer for more than two years but had stayed active in the administration of both sites until recently.
"It was a labor of love," he said.
Clients pay $25 a day - about half the cost of even the cheapest hotels - for the home-like lodgings. Some stay for the course of a loved one's treatment, while others come and go.
Janice Concilio, vice president of patient care services at St. Luke's and a Jenn's House board member, said Patricia Dillman had extraordinary energy and devotion.
"This is a woman who was so passionate and dedicated to helping others she would call into the board meetings while she was undergoing chemotherapy," Concilio said.
Running on a mix of donations, grants and volunteer labor, the two Jenn's House locations have served more than 3,000 people.
"We stopped counting last year," Richard Dillman said, adding that he has stopped accepting new clients temporarily while he deals with his wife's passing.
"I'll continue the legacy as long as I can," Dillman said. "And when I can't, hopefully someone else will."

Gerald 'Jerry' Dillman b.21Feb1942 Scottsbluff, NE d. 12Jan2018

Gerald “Jerry” Dillman, 75, of rural Mitchell, passed away Friday, January 12, 2018 at his home surrounded with love by his family. His funeral service will be held at 10:30am on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Morrill with Reverend Kenneth L. Humphrey officiating.

The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials in Jerry’s honor be made in care of Trinity Lutheran Church for handicap parking, or Scottsbluff County 4-H program to be designated by the family. Online condolences may be left at
Jerry was born Feb 21, 1942 to David and Lydia (Kuxhaus) Dillman in Scottsbluff, NE. Jerry graduated from Mitchell High School in 1960 and from Chadron State College in 1964 where he met the love of his life Melvina (Thayer) Dillman of Harrison, and they were married May 31, 1964. They taught in Idaho and Cheyenne, WY. To this union two beautiful daughters were born: Darci Lea and Debra Lynn who were the light of his life. Jerry and Melvina moved back to the valley in 1970 where he engaged in farming. In addition to farming, in 1979 he joined the seed corn sales force. Later he established Dillman Seed and Tri-D Hose & Supply in Morrill which he continued to operate until his retirement this past fall of 2017. During those years of selling seed corn he met and formed some very good, close friends. Farming and working as a seed salesman brought such fulfillment and helping others to have the best success possible was integral to who he was. His business did not build clientele, it built friendships.
Jerry was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Morrill. He had held every office within the Voter Assembly. Being part of the congregation and helping build a new House of The Lord for Trinity Lutheran Church in 2000, along with The Laborers For Christ, was one of his greatest servant moments. His faith was extremely important to him and guided many aspects of his life.
20 years ago he was elected to serve on the North Platte Natural Resources District (NPNRD) and was passionate about working with water issues throughout the state of Nebraska. He was also a member of the state NARD (Nebraska Association of Resources Districts) which is based in Lincoln, NE and is composed of a delegate from all 23 NRD’s.
He was most proud of his 4 grandchildren and watching their different talents, all of who were the apple of his eye. Whether he was supporting them at their activities/athletics or spending time when they visited Papa and Mama’s he ensured they knew the depth of his love. Family was the most important aspect to him. He never missed an opportunity to share stories or brag about his children and grandchildren.
Survivors include his beautiful wife Melvina of Mitchell, daughters and “sons” Steve and Darci Karr of Hastings, NE, Bruce and Debra Schneider of Mitchell, granddaughters Cassandra and Amanda Karr of Hastings, grandsons Burke and Brayden Schneider of Mitchell, brother and sister-in-law Alan and Shirley Dillman of Morrill, in-laws (outlaws) Joy Dean Niswender, Karen Thayer, Melvin and Chris Thayer, and numerous nieces and nephews.

JoAnn Dillman Henry b. 31Jan1938 d. 15Jan2018

Bradford Dillman b.14Apr1930 d. 16Jan2018

In his engagingly casual 1997 autobiography, Are You Anybody?, the actor Bradford Dillman, who has died aged 87, took a self-deprecatory view of his own career in particular and of acting in general - a profession he considered just below that of used-car salesman in the American social order. About his prolific work in cinema and television, he was sanguine, having settled for what he called "the Safeway solution" - a willingness to accept any role in order to put food on the family table.
On stage Dillman had achieved early success as Edmund in the 1956 Broadway production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night. This lauded production starred Fredric March as the father and Jason Robards as the alcoholic brother Jamie. Although Robards received greater acclaim in the juicier role, Dillman received good notices and the play kickstarted his career. When the play was filmed in 1962, however, Dean Stockwell took over the role of the younger brother. This circumstance was dictated by Bradford Dillman - actorDillman's contract with 20th Century Fox, which led to his debut as the romantic lead in the glossy A Certain Smile (1958), quickly followed by In Love and War.
By far the most notable of his Fox movies was Richard Fleischer's Compulsion (1959), in which he and Stockwell were chillingly cast as the murderous Leopold and Loeb. Their barnstorming co-star Orson Welles (as the defence lawyer) never forgave the youngsters when the trio shared the best actor award at the 1959 Cannes film festival. Dillman's cool performance as the dominant, intellectual psychopath also won him a Golden Globe as the year's most promising newcomer.
The following year he was cast opposite Welles in Fleischer's Crack in the Mirror and his career seemed set fair. He was a handsome, contracted actor with a suave manner, elegantly suited to playing villains. Between his 1958 debut and 1973, when he played his favourite screen role of Willie Oban in John Frankenheimer's successful treatment of O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, Dillman notched up some 30 movies and a comparable number of TV series. But having come full circle with the O'Neill, his work became increasingly mundane.
He still remained happy, since acting had been an ambition since his schooldays. He was born in San Francisco, California, the son of Dean Dillman, a stockbroker, and his wife, Josephine (nee Moore). Bradford took part in amateur theatrics at school and studied English literature at Yale University. After service in the Marine Corps, he set himself a five-year time limit to achieve credibility as an actor. Within a year, he had progressed from menial jobs and a crowd scene in a production of Inherit the Wind, to a New York debut in Scarecrow and three summer seasons at the Playhouse in Connecticut. Theatre took a back seat following a lead role in The Fun Couple (1957), which lasted for only two performances in New York.
Cinema took over and three busy years later he found himself in London for Circle of Deception, playing a spy tortured into betrayal by the Gestapo. His co-star was the fashion model turned actor, Suzy Parker. Within months she and Dillman were married and she later abandoned acting for family life. She had one child by a former marriage and Dillman had two. They also had three children together and Dillman referred to them as his "six Oscars".
His career was not helped by the turgid film Sanctuary (1961), but took a boost with his role as the saint in a lavish account of Francis of Assisi (also 1961) and innumerable television appearances in series such as Cannon and Mission Impossible.
He was nothing if not versatile. He was a cavalry officer in a rehash of The Plainsman (1966), a lawyer in the excellent Sergeant Ryker (1968) and an amnesiac in Jigsaw (also 1968). He fared better as a major in the briskly exciting The Bridge at Remagen (1969) and was a lowlier captain in the satire Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came? (1970).
Despite roles as a doctor in Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) and a senator in another science fiction movie, The Resurrection of Zachary Wheeler (1971), he was most often cast as the villain and estimated that he had "wasted" more than 1,000 people during his lengthy career. There was, however, light relief in being cast (in his early 40s) as JJ, an undergraduate in the romantic drama The Way We Were (1973). In the same year, he joined a fine cast in The Iceman Cometh, but for the rest of the decade he was relentless in the pursuit of work. He acted in more than 20 movies in the next seven years - few of note.
Bradford Dillman in Escape from the Planet of the Apes, 1971, gave him the lead role as a scientist and another horror flick, Piranha (1978), enjoyed even greater cult status. He was Clint Eastwood's Captain in one of the weaker Dirty Harry movies, The Enforcer (1976). But all too often the movies were dire - none more so than The Swarm (1978), a starrily cast disaster movie about killer bees.
He moved towards television, hopeful of long-running series. The glossy Falcon Crest (1982-83) lasted longer than King's Crossing (1982), a rather earnest drama about the problems of a family in rural California. He also became a fixture in his friend Angela Lansbury's successful Murder, She Wrote, appearing in many episodes from 1985 onwards.
His films thereafter included a violent adventure Treasure of the Amazon (1985), a cheap Roger Corman production Lords of the Deep and a Rambo rip-off Heroes Stand Alone (both 1989). There was modest consolation in The Legend of Walks Far Woman (1982), in which he co-starred with Raquel Welch, and in being Eastwood's boss in Sudden Impact (1983). But after The Heart of Justice (1992), a thriller about a sinister family, he virtually retired from the screen.
In 1994 Dillman wrote Inside the New York Giants and indulged himself in his obsession with American football, including tireless work with the San Francisco 49ers. He embarked, too, on writing his "war stories" - recording a lifetime "most people can only dream about".
Suzy died in 2003. He is survived by his children, Jeffrey, Pamela, Charlie, Christopher and Dinah, and stepdaughter, Georgia.

Alice Marie Dillman b.5Sep1934 d.16Jan2019

MADISON-Alice Marie Dillman died peacefully on Alice Marie DillmanSaturday, Jan. 16, 2019, at Aster Memory Care in Cottage Grove. She was born Sept. 5, 1934, to Melvin and Barbara (Hornung) Ghering in Madison. Alice graduated from Madison East High School in 1952 and UW-Whitewater in 1956 with a degree in Education. She taught at Arena High School before having children.
Later, she was a chemist at Warzyn Engineering for 15 years, then did substitute teaching for four years and once taught her grandson Sean for a day (he behaved).
Alice played softball for many years and was a third baseman with a live arm. She was a member of the Madison Business Women's Golf League at Yahara Hills for over 40 years, starting in 1965. Alice was a well-known fixture in city and state golf tournaments, and as a volunteer at LPGA tournaments.
Volunteering was important in Alice's life. She was one of the original members of the MMSD Youth Golf Initiative which later became the First Tee.
Alice had a life-long love of nature and returned to school for Botany in the 1970s. She was active in county and city land preservation and catalogued all plants growing in the Heritage Woods Sanctuary. Alice was a volunteer at Second Harvest for over 15 years and was involved with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the Women's Transit Authority.
In her later years, Alice continued golfing and added biking and walking to her near daily activities. Then of course, she had to have a motorcycle-at age 60. Local drivers were amazed at how slow a motorcycle could travel and remain upright. Alice always loved to travel and followed this passion even more upon retirement.
Her greatest adventure was hiking the mountains of Nepal. She fished for marlin in the Caribbean, enjoyed trips to New York City and one of her last trips was to The Outer Banks of North Carolina with her daughter Dianne. She spent several weeks each winter with her close friend Pat Mueller in Arizona. And her family will always remember the Spring trips to Gulf Shores, Ala., where Alice would rent a beach house, and all were welcome.
Alice is survived by her children, Doug (Lisa), Dianne Dillman, and Dennis (Marge); her favorite brother, Ron (Harriet); her beloved grandchildren, Kyle (Becca), Ross, Scott (Jessica) and Sean (Paige); great-grandchildren, Connor, Aria, and newest addition Colt; her niece, Patricia; and her nephew, Joseph (Raissa).

L.Thomas Dillman b.26Aug1931 Huntington, IN d. 16Jul2021

Thomas Dillman, 89, professor emeritus of the Physics and Astronomy Department at Ohio Wesleyan University, succumbed on July 16 at Riverside Methodist Hospital. Born in Huntington, Indiana, to Lloyd and Marie Dillman on Aug. 26, 1931, he spent his early life on a farm.
His education included a B.A. degree in physics and mathematics from Manchester University in 1953, and a B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in nuclear spectroscopy at the University of Illinois in 1958. He began his science career in experimental nuclear physics and later became a consultant for thirty years in the Health and Safety Medical Internal Radiation Dose Research Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He collaborated with physicists in the development of a computer program that allowed the calculation of radiation dosages within organs and tissues of the human body. His publications in nuclear medicine and health were widely used by physicians throughout the world to determine safe radiation dosages. This research contributed to three co-authored comprehensive books of data that are key reference works for nuclear medicine and radiation protection commands that have been widely used internationally.
Dr. Dillman entered the teaching profession at Ohio Wesleyan University in 1958 and gave fifty years of service to this university. His enthusiasm for physics was irrefutable. Early on, his innovative use of computers for education gave students at that time the state-of-the-art experience for future careers. Through his lectures he conveyed a love of physics, a demand for rigor in problem solving, and an injunction to attain one's best in all endeavors. Students spent endless hours in electronics courses mastering difficult ideas and crucial analytical laboratory skills.
His dedication to physics won him the admiration and affection of four decades of OWU students and faculty. Thereupon, he received the President Herbert Welch Meritorious Teaching Award in 1978. In 2004, the L. Thomas Dillman Electronics Laboratory at OWU was dedicated to his enthusiasm and expertise in teaching electronics. He also served as Chairperson of the Physics Department for a term and as a member of the Personnel Committee.
Dr. Dillman supported music in every way. He solved Sudoku puzzles for relaxation and was playfully competitive in games. He spent many years riding his bicycle on the Tour of the Scioto River Valley and on the roads of Delaware County with friends Robert Caulkins and Wendell Patton. He pedaled tours in Canada and North Carolina with his son. The opportunities to travel to Europe, Turkey, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.A. resulted in great adventures. In 1985-1986, he spent nine months in Spain writing a textbook while his spouse, Mary Alice, taught English-as-a-Foreign Language at the Internacional Instituto of Madrid. He was active in the Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
Family and friends described him as warm, curious, thoughtful and contemplative. The Dillmans raised four children whose accomplishments reflect the Dillmans' appreciation of art and scholarship.
Survivors include his spouse, Mary Alice; John, his son in Delaware; Anne Kloos, a professor of physical therapy at Ohio State University; Susan Waterbury, a concert violinist and professor of violin at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY; and Bradford, a professor of International Political Economy at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. Also surviving are Grandsons Harrison Dillman; Daniel and Zachary Kloos and Granddaughter Noelle Dillman.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021 at 4 p.m. in the Atrium of the Schimmel-Conrades Science Center, 90 South Union Street, in-person with masks and social distancing or on YouTube.
In lieu of flowers, donations for student scholarships in physics in memory of Tom Dillman can be directed to Ohio Wesleyan University, University Advancement, 61 South Sandusky Street, Delaware, OH 43015; or to the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.

John Dillman b. 3Nov1944 Yreka, CA d 24Apr22 Boise, ID

Boise, Idaho - John Dillman (1944-2022) was born in Yreka, California, to parents Bob Dillman and LaVerne Timmons. His father died in a vehicle accident in 1951. His mother remarried in 1954, and the family moved to Anchorage, Alaska. He graduated from East Anchorage High School in 1962. John joined the US Army in 1964, and after basic and airborne training, was assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in Nha Trang, Vietnam.
After being discharged in July, 1967, John returned to Alaska. In 1968 he enrolled in the Alaska Methodist University, graduating in 1973 with a degree in Business and Economics. In 1974 John began a 38-year career in real estate appraisal. He was a member of the Appraisal Institute (MAI) and served as Chapter Presidents in both Alaska and Idaho. Upon the death of his wife Sally in 1993, from mesothelioma, John relocated to Lake Oswego, Oregon, and two years later to Boise, Idaho.
John had an early passion for mountains and in later years for rivers. He began climbing in 1960 with the Mountaineering Club of Alaska. John was also an avid alpine and backcountry skier. He was an early advocate in the revival of telemark skiing in the late 1970s, and won numerous races (in his age group).
In 2011, after several years of a noticeable decline in coordination and movement, John was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, attributed to exposure to Agent Orange during his 28-month tour in Vietnam. John reluctantly gave up skiing and mountain biking, but continued a daily exercise regimen to "Delay the Disease' along with a new interest in paddling both kayaks and packrafts, on rivers in Utah, Oregon, Arizona, and Idaho.
John and his brother Jim enjoyed a childhood full of adventure in Alaska. In 1964 John and Jim were driving home from skiing when the largest earthquake ever recorded in North America hit Anchorage (magnitude of 9.2). Thinking that the shaking car had a flat tire, they pulled onto a side street. The street they were on cleaved in two and their car fell 20 feet, landing right side up. They were able to scramble out and help a man with a crushed leg. He had story after story that started in disaster and ended in heroics.
In his later years, John enjoyed visiting his brother and sister-in-law (Jim and Sandie) at their ranch in Oregon, and some of his favorite memories were made with his niece, Krystal. On one memorable camping trip a black bear got into the cooler and ate all of Krystal's junk food but left John's healthy snacks.
In 2020 he met a wonderful friend, Elena Dryer. She and her husband and children welcomed John into their family and took wonderful care of him when he needed it most. He had home cooked meals and daily companionship with the Dryers. John was a surrogate grandfather to Elena's children and they were a surrogate family to him.
He is preceded in death by his parents (Bob and LaVerne) and wife (Sally). His surviving relatives include his brother Jim Dillman, sister-in-law Sandie Braden, and his beloved niece, Krystal Dillman. John had so many friends who loved him dearly and will continue to miss his warmth, generosity, crazy mountaineering stories, and his eagerness to share a laugh.
Per John's wishes, no service will be held, but his ashes will be scattered in late May. Please visit his Facebook page for details. If you shared John's love of the outdoors, please consider donating to Ridge to Rivers

Brian J. Dillman b. 18Feb1964 d. 17Aug2022

EVENSVILLE - Brian J. Dillman, 58 years old, died peacefully at home on August 17, 2022.
Brian was born February 18, 1964, to David and Virginia Dillman. With a smirk that will make you smile Brian would tell stories of his youth and the trouble he'd get into. Brian J. Dillman There's no doubt about it, he gave meaning to the terms "hell-raiser" and "wild-child." In between late nights and hallway fights, Brian learned the meaning of hard work while helping his dad at the family-owned station.
He was a force to be reckoned with; until the day he met his match, a quiet farm girl named Donna. Brian quickly learned that his sole purpose on earth was to build a life with her. They were married in April of 1983, and from then on, he spent his time ensuring she knew of his unwavering love for her and the five children they raised.
While Brian's love of loud motorcycles, fast cars and the occasional fight never seemed to fade, his spare time was filled with learning to dance because it made her happy and watching kids sporting events because it made them smile. Brian was the definition of a provider and led by example as his children watched him run his own business. He taught his kids that good things in life come to those who work hard and help others along the way. Over the years his children watched him do things like pull cars out of the ditch during snowstorms and buy Christmas presents for the customer that couldn't afford to buy their kids any.
The boy who once was too cool for school, grew into a man who wrote poems to his loved ones for special occasions or for himself on bad days. He showed his sons how to be husbands and providers. While simultaneously teaching his daughters to stand fiercely on their own.
In his next life Brian will be welcomed by his parents, David and Virginia and his parents-in-law Donald and Carol Elmer who despite their first impression grew to love him as their own. He'll leave behind his wife, Donna; five children: Jason (Amy) Dillman, Amy Weisman, Taylor Dillman, Mack (Mickala) Dillman and Dylan Dillman; and two grandchildren: Avery Weisman and Ace Weisman; and many brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews.
A visitation will be held on Friday, August 26, 2022, from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Ward-Hurtley Funeral Home, Evansville, with funeral services immediately following. Brian will be cremated with no burial service. However, the family asks that you bring your loudest motorcycle, classic car or pickup truck as we'd like to take Brian on one last cruise immediately following the service. Together we'll make sure he hears our praise for the life he lived. In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be established in Brian's name at a later date.

Dr. David M. Dillman b.14Nov1950 Provo, UT d. 18Aug2022 Urbana, IL

Danville - Dr. David M. Dillman, 71, of Danville passed away while surrounded by family and lifelong friends at 3:37 PM on August 18, 2022 at OSF Heart of Mary Medical Center in Urbana, IL.
David was born on November 14, 1950 the son of Leslie and Cecelia (Hullinger) Dillman in Provo, UT. He married Cheryl Vergin on October 25, 1980 in St. Paul, MN and she preceded him in death on November 8, 2021.
Survivors Dr. David M. Dillman include two daughters, Kayla Dillman of Danville, IL and Meryl (Ryan Kaiser) Dillman of Leawood, KS, two grandchildren, Cecelia Kaiser and June Kaiser both of Leawood, KS, sister, Debbie (Dave Moody) Dillman of Kokomo, IN, and one brother, Dean (Karen) Dillman of Tallahassee, FL.
David is preceded in death by his parents, wife, Cheryl and sister, Dawnelle Dillman.
David graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1972 and the Indiana University School of Medicine 1976. He completed his residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He started his own practice, Dillman Eye Care, in Danville in the 1980s and retired in 2017.
While he earned a reputation as a pioneer in the field of cataract surgery, David was also known around town as "the guy with the dogs." He raised and adored seven Newfoundland dogs and loved to take them on long walks around Danville. He was asked "is that a bear?" more times than any of us could count!
In addition to loving his "newfs," David was an avid Notre Dame football fan and created many childhood memories for his family at his alma mater by cheering on the Fighting Irish. He also loved a good card game, especially Euchre, and was known to crack a lot of jokes during the 1,000s of games he played with his family.
He showered his family in love and support and was always the Dad who was simply there. He was in the stands at every sporting event. He drove hundreds of miles when a daughter simply needed a hug and to be told "everything was going to be OK." He never missed a play or musical - simply stated he was always there, and there was never a doubt in the minds of his loved ones that he loved them and would always be there, no matter what. He embraced his community and found ways - big and small - to show his dedication and support.
His love and adoration for his family was so immense, he seemed to live by the quote, "On the day God created my family, he did nothing else..."

Danielle Dillman 36

NEAR SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating a three-vehicle crash on I-44 near Springfield that killed two drivers and two passengers.
Driver Joshua Wamsley, 33, of Springfield, and Danielle Dillman, 36, of Springfield, died in one vehicle. Driver Patrick Holloway, 44, of Republic, Mo., and Shandrea Hollway, 44, of Republic, Mo., died in a second vehicle. A one-year-old suffered moderate injuries in the vehicle driven by Holloway.
Troopers responded to the crash on Thanksgiving around 10 p.m., about two miles west of Springfield. Troopers say the chain-reaction crash began when a vehicle driven by Wamsley hit the back of another vehicle. Investigators say Wamsley lost control, hitting Holloway's vehicle head-on in the westbound lanes.
Troopers say nobody suffered injuries in the vehicle hit from behind in the crash.
Sergeant Mike McClure, with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, said this was a sad accident.
"These four make 126 fatalities for Troop D this year," said Sgt. McClure. "We were really hoping that we wouldn't have any and this is a very tragic."
The only survivor was a one-year-old in Holloway's car.
"There were two that were transported and later pronounced deceased at the hospital and two were pronounced deceased at the scene," said Sgt. McClure.
Troopers said Both Wamsley and Dillman, were not wearing seat belts, the Holloways and the baby were.
Sgt. McClure said they don't know if Wamsley was speeding.
"If this turns out to be the case for that we've got four losses of life for somebody that felt the need to be in a hurry," said Sgt. McClure. "Or just driving without any courtesy."
McClure said this was a horrible crash for a holiday.
"There wasn't any room to live just because of the impact and the direction of the impact," said Sgt. McClure.
He adds the one positive was the baby was in a rear-facing car seat and made it out alive with small injuries. He also said during this holiday season, everyone should be wearing seatbelts, and have a plan if drinking.
"Go with that plan and keep everybody safe regarding that," said Sgt. McClure. "If everybody could do that, we would reduce the impaired driving injuries and fatalities so much, if you could just stick with that plan."
Shandrea Holloway's brother sent us a message saying both she and Patrick were bright, caring people who loved their family and friends, and they will be very missed.
Sergeant McClure said the crash is still under investigation and they don't know yet if it was caused by speeding or aggressive driving.

DJ Dillman b. 7Feb1979 d. 27Nov2022

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my little brother DJ Dillman on Sunday, November 27, 2022. Born February 7, 1979. Predeceased by his mother Diana DJ DillmanDillman. A father to two wonderful boys Rome and Cruz. A skilled machine operator when he was not on his phone. A friend to anyone who had the fortune to cross his path. DJ was taken too soon from us all. Another tragic loss to addiction.
DJ will be remembered for his huge smile, big blue eyes and non-stop laughter. DJ had a great sense of humour and could make anyone laugh on their hardest days. His greatest pride and joy came from his boys, who he loved very deeply. His most meaningful memories were spent with them at the lake or in the garage working on a project. When his boys were not along for the ride his dog Rio accompanied him to most job sites. DJ was known by many contractors for his great excavating work and dug many houses in the Kamloops area. He spent his off time with a Kokanee in hand and wearing dollar sunglasses that were two sizes too big seeming to ensure no one would take them.
DJ will be missed greatly by family and friends. Anyone that got to know the real DJ know how fortunate they were. You will forever be remembered and loved. I love you Geejay and give mom a hug for me. Love your sister Deanna.
A small family gathering will be held later this month.

Matthew D. Dillman b. d.8Jan2023 Ringtown, PA

Jan. 10-POTTSVILLE - A Schuylkill County sheriff's deputy has lost his battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Matthew D. Dillman, 43, of Ringtown, died Sunday at home, leaving behind a wife, Brandy, a daughter, Kennedy, and other family.
Sheriff Joseph G. Groody said he was on his way to visit Dillman on Sunday when he learned of his death through a text message.
"He's going to be greatly missed by my office. He was an excellent deputy," Groody said Monday.
"You couldn't ask for a better guy to work with," he added, noting that he trained Dillman as an officer in the Ashland police department.
Dillman had been a part-time deputy since February 2018.
In October 2021, he learned he had cancer and that it had metastasized. He had been taking chemotherapy that often made him exhausted.
Groody said employees in the sheriff's office had prayed and hoped Dillman would beat the cancer.
As a tribute, Groody on Monday placed a department hat and coat, a framed department patch and a photo of Dillman on a chair outside the office.
Chief Deputy Brian Tobin is among those feeling the loss of a colleague.
"It's hard for all of us up here," he said Monday.
Tobin called Dillman "a great co-worker" who will be missed by everyone in the office.
Dillman said in an interview in November he would continue to fight as hard as he could.
"I absolutely refuse to have this dictate my life," he said.
A fundraiser by sheriff's office employees from Oct. 16 to Dec. 16 raised about $2,500 for expenses associated with Dillman's weekly out-of-state drives for chemotherapy. North Schuylkill Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 25, of which Dillman was president, also started a fundraiser last week for his medical expenses, Tobin said. T-shirts and sweatshirts are for sale at
Any money remaining will go to his daughter's education fund c/o Union National Bank, 1 N. Oak St., P.O. Box 367, Mount Carmel, PA 17851.

Ronald Eugene Dillman b. 7Mar1935 Danville, IL d. 5Apr2023 Fort Myers, FL

The former publisher of a tiny newspaper in the U.S. Virgin Islands, who helped guide it to a prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in Journalism, has died. Ronald Eugene Dillman, 88, quietly passed away Wednesday night, April 5, at a care facility in Fort Myers, Florida. He had been suffering Alzheimer's disease for the past several months.
Dillman was appointed executive editor of The Daily News of the U.S. Virgin Islands in 1980 and later was promoted to publisher. It was as publisher in 1995 when the paper, which had a circulation of 16.400 and 18 full-time editors and reporters, garnered the Pulitzer for Public Service, the most distinguished level of the Pulitzers. The Daily News, then a Gannett newspaper, was honored for a 10-part series on crime, "Virgin Island Crime: Who's to Blame?" The series, which initiated many reforms, described a police department that seldom caught criminals, prosecutors who seldom won cases, judges who handed out light sentences and a narcotics force inundated with corruption.
Penny Feuerzeig, then the paper's executive editor, pointed out that the objective of the series was to explain why the Virgin Islands treated crime so hospitably. Melvin L. Claxton, the lead reporter and writer in the series, said a police evidence room was so disorganized that evidence disappeared routinely.
Both Feuerzeig and Claxton talked about their experience working with Dillman. "Ron was an absolutely terrific boss," Feuerzeig said. "Never in the time that I was executive editor did I ever remember him saying no to running a story. We were partners in fighting corruption, and the crime was corruption at all levels. There were no sacred cows. It didn't matter who you knew, we tried to be the voice of the community.
"Ron has been missed since he left The Daily News. I am grateful for the years in the trenches, and the many years as my boss."
Said Claxton: "Ron Dillman had one of the most difficult jobs in journalism, managing an aggressive investigative newspaper in a small, close-knit community. Many targets of the newspapers' investigators were his friends, associates and advertising clients. They often gave him an earful and threatened to pull ads.
"But Ron navigated the demanding media landscape and allowed reporters, editors and photographers to tell their stories that held comRonald Eugene Dillman munity leaders and powerbrokers to account. Despite the daily pressures, he ultimately always sided with good journalism. He made his community better, and there can be no higher praise for a journalist." Another person who worked closely with Dillman was Mike Coleman, former Gannett senior vice president and head of the group Dillman worked in. "Ron and I had a variety of connections, as execs first in Illinois and then when he was publisher of The Daily News. One could always count on Ron for news integrity, creativity and commitment to the newspaper, his customers and employees."
Ron Dillman was born March 7, 1935, in Danville, Ill., the son of Max and Mildred Dillman. He graduated in 1953 from Ridge Farm Township School, where he was active in all sports. He attended Earlham College in Richmond, Ind., where he first exhibited a keen interest in--and flair for--journalism as a reporter for the college newspaper, The Palladium. He then attended the University of Illinois' College of Journalism. He joined in 1958 the Danville Ill., Commercial-News, also then a Gannett newspaper, and spent the next 22 years there, working his way up from general reporter, sports editor, city editor, columnist and executive editor. While in Danville he married the former Diana Walker of Henning. Their marriage ended in divorce. She lives in Naples, Fl.
He moved to St. Thomas in 1980 as executive editor of the Daily News. Throughout his tenure there he complained about allegedly corrupt politicians and police. That disgust led The Daily News to begin its investigations into the corrupt politics and police there.
Dillman married Lorna Quamina in St. Thomas in 1985. He adopted her daughter, Tiffany, soon after their marriage. Lorna and Dillman divorced in 1991. Dillman continued to be close to his daughter throughout his life. He is survived by Lorna, Tiffany, Tiffany's two children, Alexzander and Trista, all of Virginia Beach, Va.,as well as his brother, Terry, and his wife, Susan, who live in La Quinta, Ca. Dillman was predeceased by a sister, Melba Cormaney, of Nashville, Tenn., in 2019.

Donald Francis Dillman b. 23Nov1934 Worcester, MA d. 4Sep2023 Southborough

With heavy hearts, we mourn the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Donald Francis Dillman. Don left this world peacefully on September 4, 2023, surrounded by family who lovingly held his hand as he transitioned to his eternal rest.
Born on November 23, 1934, in Worcester, MA, Don was the cherished son of Elizabeth and Joseph Dillman. In 1954, he married the love of his life Marilyn Good. They celebrated 66 happy years together raising a family in a home filled with laughter, joy, and unwavering love.
Don was predeceased by his loving wife Marilyn (d. February 4, 2021), his brothers Joseph and Robert, and his sister Phyllis Masterson.
He is survived by his loving sister Mary Jane McKenna and her husband Bill, his sister-in-law Beryl Dillman, his three sons, Scott and his wife Karen, Andy and his wife Alison, and Steve and his wife Susan, and seven grandchildren, Christopher and his wife Nikki, Heather and her husband Nick, Courtney and her husband Caldwell, Michael and his wife Megan, Kelsey, Jack, Meredith and great grandchild Wells Huckabay.
Together Don and Marilyn raised three devoted sons. Don was extremely proud of his sons and absolutely cherished time spent with his daughters-in-law. Nothing brought him greater delight than being with his seven grandchildren. He showered them with love and created lasting memories they will forever hold dear. Don was overjoyed to have a great-grandson Wells, born earlier this year.
Don graduated from New England School of Accounting and Classical High School. He later taught at New England School of Accounting which was founded by his father.
Don was a CPA and had a distinguished accounting career in New England. He worked at George A. Smith, Tupper & Moore, Main Hurdman, and finished his career as a Managing Partner at KPMG. In addition, he was a Board Director for 30 years and the CFO for five years of Washington Mills, headquartered in North Grafton. Also for three years he was a co-owner of Sleeper and Hartley Corporation, a long standing manufacturer of spring-making machinery in Worcester.
While Don enjoyed his work, his greatest passion was his family. He loved lively family gatherings in Southborough, Sarasota, and Lake Winnipesaukee. Summers spent together on Lake Winnipesaukee hold a special place in all our hearts.
Don lived life to the fullest through outdoor adventures cross-country skiing, golfing, and boating. He selflessly gave back to his community through his dedicated service as the Treasurer at Worcester Country Club, vestry positions at both Trinity Episcopal Church in Meredith, NH and Saint Mark's Church in Southborough, and Planning Board in Southborough.
Although Don will be deeply missed, his unwavering love, laughter, and guidance will live on in our hearts and memories forever. We find peace in knowing he is reunited with his loving wife Marilyn.
A memorial service and celebration of Don's remarkable life will be held on November 4, 2023, at 10:00 at Saint Mark's Church in Southborough.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association in his memory.

Thomas R. Dillman b. 18Apr1952 Lansing, MI d. 23Sep2023 Lansing, MI

Thomas R. Dillman, of Lansing, was born April 18, 1952 and died September 23, 2023 in Lansing, MI.

He and Ellen (Jones) Dillman were married in 1975 and became parents to sons Kevin and Peter. In 2013, Tom and Deb Dennis were married in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, a place they loved to visit.
After receiving a degree in Mathematics from Eastern Michigan University, Tom taught math for a short time. He was then a structural engineer for several years before spending the remainder of his career with Farm Bureau Insurance where he was a Computer Programmer/Data Analyst.
To describe Tom is to use words like kind, patient, helpful, caring, teacher, inquisitive, and a man with a big heart. As a child, Tom had a mischievous side and loved to play practical jokes on his family. As an adult, he used his humor and "dad jokes" to bring laughter to others. Tom's core personality was being of service to others. Whether assisting his sisters with math homework, mentoring colleagues at work, playing Santa for his granddaughters or comforting fellow residents at his memory care facility, Tom had a need to help others. He touched many lives and will be remembered for doing so.
Tom was preceded in death by his mother and father; his mother-in-law, Betty Dennis Beach; and Ruth and Larry Jones, his previous mother-in-law and father-in-law. Tom leaves behind his wife, Deb; sons Kevin Dillman and Peter (Brittany) Dillman; granddaughters, Lucy and Alice; sisters Mary (Craig) Pequinot and Linda (Dennis) Rhodes; Ellen Dillman; sister-in-law, Cindy Campbell; brother-in-law, Bruce Dennis; along with several loving nieces, nephews and friends.

He was inducted into the Butler County Sports Hall of Fame in 1993 and the MHS Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.

He also was a practical joker, Fisher said. She remembered one time he walked out of a bathroom with toilet paper hanging out of his pants. Another time, she said, while her father was staying in a hotel, he hid in the trunk of the car. He had a friend tell the hotel clerk he heard a noise and when the clerk opened the trunk to investigate, Dillman jumped out.
He is survived by his daughters Diana Dillman (Cristina Louzan), Lori Zander (Daniel), Jennifer Fisher (Donald), and his grandchildren Daniel and Lauren Zander and Jacob and Elijah Fisher.

Nancy Jo Dillman, a resident of Baraboo, WI since 1982, passed away on November 15th, 2023 after a lengthy struggle with cancer. Nancy was born in Sheboygan on August 15th, 1947, the daughter of James J. Dillman, a local attorney and his wife, Josephene Markoff Dillman. After Josephene's untimely death in 1954, her father married Louise Steinke in 1957, and Louise became Nancy's beloved mother until her death in 2004.
Following graduation from North High School in 1965, Nancy attended Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, where she majored in German studies and graduated in 1969 with high honors (magna cum laude) and was elected to the Minnesota Epsilon chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's leading academic honor society.
In 1969, she moved to Washington D.C., where she began a career with the Central Intelligence Agency. Resigning in 1981, she moved with her new husband to Baraboo, Wisconsin, where she established a stained-glass studio, and the couple began selling her artwork at art fairs around the state, as well as throughout the Midwest, and occasionally, the East coast. In 1993, they purchased a building in downtown Baraboo and opened the Cornerstone Gallery, a fine art and designer craft gallery, which helped to kick start the rebirth of the central business district, today a thriving commercial district attracting both locals and tourists. Nancy sold the business in 2006, but the Cornerstone Gallery, now led by its fourth owner, celebrated its 30th Anniversary in October 2023.
Nancy was an active volunteer in many local organizations, but her favorite was the Sauk County Humane Society, which she led for many years. Her proudest achievement occurred in the late 1990's, when she led the campaign to build the first animal shelter in the county. In recent years, Nancy was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of writing fiction, and she self-published four time-travel romance novels, available at online book retailers.
Nancy is survived by her husband, Helfried (Fred) Moh, of Baraboo and several cousins.
Per Nancy's wishes, there will be no services held.
Donations in Nancy's memory may be made to the Sauk County Humane Society, 618 Linn Street, Baraboo, WI 53913, and would be greatly appreciated.

Anita C. Dillman, 73, of Campton, NH, died peacefully on December 11, 2023 with her daughter and son-in-law at her side, following complications of a surgery one week prior. She is survived by her daughter Lilly Stolper, son-in-law (or "adopted son," as she would say) Josh Gold, and two brothers, Richard and Daniel Dillman. She was preceded in death by her beloved kitty cat companions, Sombra and Bujo.
Anita was born on November 2, 1950 to Alda and Richard Dillman in Wellsboro, PA. After receiving her Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1974 with a focus on lithography, she spent the next decade traveling the world. From biking across Europe, to hitchhiking through Africa, to camping in Mexico and Canada, her adventurous spirit and love of other cultures flourished. She created a lifetime's worth of stories during her travels, with highlights including a nine month stay in a fisherman's hut on the Greek island of Samos, and a year working as a graphic designer in Tehran, Iran before being evacuated during the hostage crisis in 1979.
After starting a family and putting down roots in New Hampshire, Anita nurtured the creativity and growth of countless students during her decades working as an educator. She homeschooled her daughter through her elementary school years before taking a position as an art instructor at Plymouth State University. In her later years, she tutored students with English as a second language at the Holderness School. She was appreciated and respected for devoting immeasurable time and energy to her work, identifying each student's unique needs and strengths in order to support and guide them to realize their fullest potential.
Anita cared deeply for her fellow humans, animals, and the planet. She was a true lover of nature and spent much of her free time walking, biking, swimming, and tending her prolific garden for hours at a time. She was known in her community for being outgoing, gregarious, and able to strike up a conversation with anyone she might meet during her long walks on the dirt roads of her neighborhood. By her family and friends, she was loved for her generosity, warmth, empathy, and her Italian hospitality (she always had a delicious pot of caldo de pollo, a bowl of fresh-made pesto pasta, or a luscious cheese board at the ready the moment guests walked through the door). She was brave, independent, stubborn, inquisitive, creative, silly, and smart. She was a peace-loving, free-thinking, tree-hugging, Bernie-supporting hippie at heart (she even attended the original Woodstock, satin paisley bell bottom suit and all). Above all, she was kind and good to her core. You were so very loved and will be dearly missed, Anita, Neet, Nita, Mommanita.
