Mrs. Jane Dillman, 71, of Richmond, passed away in the presence of her family on Tuesday, February 9, at her residence.
She was born September 6, 1938 in Piedmont, South Dakota. She married an Air Force man named Robert R. Dillman on August 17, 1957 and was blessed with 3 daughters and a son to raise over the years.
Jane was formerly employed by Holiday Inn in Richmond and was also a homemaker. She enjoyed bowling when her health permitted and was always ready to go shopping. She loved the Lord, enjoyed Bible study and was a living testament to the power of prayer. Her 20-year battle with cancer profiled her faith and courage and helped build her legacy of a strong, close-knit family. She especially enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with her grandbabies.
Jane will be missed by her husband, Robert R. Dillman, Sr.; daughters, Ranita Norman, of Indianapolis; Rhonda Pierce and her husband, Scott, of Canton, North Carolina; Robbin Norton, of Richmond; 7 grandbabies, Brandi (Daniel) Jackson, Jenny Stegall, Jasmine Stegall, Matthew (Alesia) Pierce, Traci Pierce, Alana Norman and Zachary Norman; great-grandbabies Lydia and Benjamin Jackson and Diego Carpenter; brother, Burnell Person, of Rapid City, South Dakota; and several nieces and nephews.
Jane was preceded in death by her son, Robert R. "Bobby" Dillman, Jr., on August 28, 1983; her parents, 2 sisters and 4 brothers.
