She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Ms. Dill is survived by her beloved daughter, Melinda Dill Campbell and her husband David; her grandchildren: Harper, Jack and Grant; her brother, Alan Garey and his wife Sherry; her sister, Harriett Smith and her husband Curt; and her many nieces and nephews.
