Dillion, Mrs. Thomas (4 JAN 1844 - 22 AUG 1924)

Mrs. Thomas Dillion, age 80 years, passed away at her home Friday evening at six o’clock. Up to two weeks before her death, Mrs. Dillion enjoyed the best of health. At that time she caught a cold, which caused pneumonia. Her daughter, Mrs. Dan McCarthy of Fond du Lac, was sent for soon after she became ill, and was with her until the end.

Mrs. Dillion was born in Dublin, Ireland Jan. 4, 1844, and came to this country with her parents three years later. They settled in Clymon, Wis., where she spent the early years of her life. In 1866 she met and married Thomas A. Dillion at Oak Grove, Wis. After a few years in Minnesota and Kansas, Mr. and Mrs. Dillion came back to Wisconsin and were some of the very first settlers in Abbotsford, Wis. in 1872.

Of their eight children, there are six living: Thomas in Oregon; Albert in Chippewa Falls; Mrs. H. Parkhurst, Phillips’ Mrs. Mary Taylor, Abbotsford; Mrs. Laura McCarthy, Chehale, Wash; Mrs. Dan McCarthy, Fond du Lac. There are nine grandchildren: Myra and Delbert Dillion, Chippewa Falls; Mrs. Fred Kieling and Jessie Taylor of Pittsburgh, Penn.; Mrs. Dillion was the oldest of four children and she is the last one.

The funeral took place at nine o’clock Monday morning from St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Rev. Eisenmann officiating. Burial took place at the Abbotsford Cemetery.

The Tribune and the many friends join in with the Dillion family in the loss of their dear wife and mother.
