We were so blessed to know Mrs. Dillon even for a short time. She was a beautiful lady with a beautiful spirit. We were impressed and inspired by the way her family loved her and cared for her with such devotion. We are praying for peace and comfort for your family during this time of loss.

I taught with Margie back in the early 80’s and we carpooled for a couple of years. I loved to listen to her stories as we drove to school. I enjoyed the knowledge and kindness that she showed me as a very young and rookie teacher.

Ms Dillon was a very sweet, loving very smart woman. I myself learned alot from her. My time with her was a very knowledgable one. We would sit at the kitchen table and work on the crossword word puzzle, she would give me definitations of different words. Talked about things like when she was a young woman and her husband and children. She liked sports. She also told me about different birds that would fly down on her patio to eat. I feel very lucky that she allowed me to be by her side. I will miss her so much. RIP Ms Dillon
