Priscilla A. Dillon

Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Priscilla A. (Rupp) Dillon was born on April 9, 1933 in Swanton, Ohio to Leon R. and Ruth (Martin) Rupp. On Monday, January 30, 2017, she joined them in Heaven where she is once again able to walk and run freely and easily as she strolls the streets of gold, no longer confined by MS to a wheelchair as she has been for so many years.

Priscilla grew up in Swanton, graduating from Wauseon High School in 1951. She worked for the Pilliod Cabinet Company, Swanton Cable & Wire, Swanton Super Valu and for the family business, Dillon Trucking.

She married Norman LeRoy Dillon and they were blessed with two daughters. She was a long-time faithful member of Swanton Missionary Church, where she met the Lord and was baptized at a young age. She was currently a member of the Swanton Alliance Church.

Priscilla loved her family and she will be greatly missed by daughters, Pam (Jim) Guidorzi of Pontiac, MO, Linda (Ron) Bostelman of Neapolis, Ohio; grandchildren, Todd (Melena) Reimer, Shawn (Cheyenne) Reimer, Kathy Bostelman, Kim (Matt) Bryan and Stacy (Dan) Smith; 12 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; brother, Robert (Marlene) Rupp; sisters, Betty Rathbun and Diane (Gerald) Ruttkofsky; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Our love, hugs and prayers for all Priscilla's family. She was a sweet, loving "older sister" to me, so kind and gentle. I remember her so well, and visited her many times when I worked at the nursing home and after I left and moved to Florida. So happy she is no longer in pain and now will be skipping, jumping, thankful for her new body. ❤❤❤❤
